Frequently asked questions
How does an Uber accident differ from other types of car accidents?
The claims process often becomes complicated if the at-fault party in an accident was a rideshare driver. Since they’re driving for money, their personal car insurance policy will not cover the claim.
Most ridesharing companies have a history of avoiding paying accident claims.
Companies like Lyft and Uber claim that they neither own or operate the cars, nor do they directly hire the drivers. They maintain that the drivers are not their employees and that their job is simply to match drivers with riders.
To obtain just compensation following an Uber accident, you’ll need to have a qualified lawyer by your side.
What is Uber’s $1 million insurance policy?
Uber has a $1 million insurance policy that is tiered in three. The coverage depends on the driver’s activity at the time that the accident took place.
If the Uber driver was carrying a passenger when the accident occurred, both of them are covered under the $1 million liability insurance policy.
Do I file a lawsuit against the driver or the rideshare company?
If the accident was a result of a rideshare driver’s negligence, you may seek a personal injury claim against the driver.
Rideshare drivers are not direct employees but independent contractors. This means holding the rideshare company liable may be complicated. It is best to consult a trusted Uber accident attorney who can advise you on the next steps.
Should I call the police if I am involved In a rideshare accident?
Yes. It’s crucial to inform the police immediately and seek emergency medical treatment. Law enforcement officers will also provide a formal police report of the accident, which can help strengthen your personal injury claim.
