What Happens If My Uber Driver Gets In An Accident?
Uber has ushered in a new way to get from point A to point B. Even with all the convenience of the service, there are still some dangers to taking one. If you were injured while you were riding in an Uber, you deserve to get compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, wages lost and other expenses. The Law Office of Donald W. Bedell works hard to represent personal injury victims and help them recover the compensation they deserve.
Our lawyers represent people who were injured in Uber, Lyft or other rideshare accidents in the Brick, New Jersey, area and the Toms River, New Jersey, area. We will work tirelessly until we have gotten the best possible outcome for your case.
How Does Uber’s Accident Policy Work?
If you get in an accident while in an Uber, there is an accident policy in place, however the rideshare giant has not been very clear about how the process works. This is what we do know:
- Uber insures their driver up to 1 million dollars for medical coverage and property damage, which also extends to you if they get in an accident.
- If the driver of the Uber has insurance, you may have to go through their insurance agency if Uber decides not to cover the accident.
- Uber will cover up to 50,000 per person.
- After your accident, Uber will reach out to talk with you.
A lot of this is dependent on Uber’s decisions, which is why you need a strong lawyer by your side to advocate for you in your time of need.
It is important to remember that insurance companies are not always looking out for your best interests, so you want to have an attorney by your side who will. We will take the time to fully investigate the car accident and your injuries, and make sure your rights are represented and your voice is heard. Our number one priority is working toward an agreement that we believe is fair and is in your best interests.
