If you are involved in an accident caused by an Uber driver, you may have a claim against the Uber driver’s personal auto liability insurance or you may have a claim against the Uber insurance coverage provided to Uber drivers while they are on the clock. An experienced Uber accident lawyer can review the specific details of your accident and determine the appropriate legal steps to take.
As a driver:
Uber provides auto insurance that covers you as an Uber driver whether you are driving to pick up a rider, transporting a rider or just signed onto the Uber app and waiting for a ride request.
As a passenger:
If you are injured in an accident as an Uber passenger, you may have several options. You may be covered by the $1 million in liability insurance and bodily injury coverage that Uber provides its drivers if the Uber driver was at fault in the accident.
On the other hand, if another motorist crashed into you rideshare driver and caused your injuries while you were a passenger, you may need to make a claim against the other driver’s insurance or sue the at-fault driver to recover compensation.
In some situations, it may be appropriate to make claims against both the the Rideshare company insurance and the other driver’s insurance policies. Let the rideshare accident lawyers at Schulze Law review your accident and develop a legal strategy to help you seek justice and compensation for your injuries.
