Riverside Uber Accident Lawyer
Find out how a Riverside Uber crash lawyer can help you recover the compensation you need after you’ve been injured in an Uber accident.
If it seems like Uber cars are everywhere, you’re right. All you have to do is log into the app to see how many drivers are circling Riverside’s city blocks. As convenient as they can be, all of those Uber drivers are just as likely to get into accidents as other drivers—if not more likely because of how often and how long they’re on the road.
If you’ve been hurt in an accident with an Uber vehicle, you’re likely wondering how you should go about pursuing compensation for your injuries. After all, just because the accident involved a different type of driver doesn’t mean your injuries and other damages aren’t affecting you.
The attorneys at Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you determine who you should hold accountable for your injuries. Your Riverside Uber accident lawyer will examine your case and name either the Uber driver or Uber itself in your claim for the compensation you desperately need.
When Is Uber Financially Responsible?
You will need to file a claim for compensation with the insurance company of either the Uber driver or the company Uber. Uber has laid out specific scenarios in which it will cover damage and injuries caused by its drivers.
If the driver is working—with the Uber app turned on—but does not have a passenger when he or she injures you, Uber’s insurance will cover $50,000 per person and $100,000 total for injuries. This coverage only kicks in if the driver doesn’t maintain insurance that would cover at least this much. The company will also provide up to $25,000 in property damage coverage.
Uber provides at least $1 million in liability coverage when drivers are on their way to pick up passengers or transporting passengers. This coverage also applies to passengers in the Uber car if they don’t maintain sufficient insurance.
In cases in which the Uber driver is not logged into the Uber app and causes a wreck, your Riverside Uber crash attorney will need to name the driver in your claim for compensation.
What Type of Uber Accident Were You In?
Your Uber accident could have injured you under a number of circumstances, all of which could still entitle you to compensation. For instance, you might have been driving your car when an Uber driver rear-ended you; you might have been walking down the street when an Uber car hit you; or you might have been riding in an Uber driver’s car when the driver wrecked.
Your Riverside Uber collision lawyer will help you pursue the compensation you deserve, no matter how your accident occurred.
