What Can You Do After An Uber Accident?

Liability for Car Accidents Involving Uber Vehicles

Accidents involving rideshare vehicles like an Uber are more complex than other car accident cases. Uber drivers are insured by Uber’s insurance policy when driving, but coverage depends on whether they have a passenger, are going to pick up a passenger, or are waiting for a ride request. If the driver was not working, then their personal car insurance covers them. If a vehicle other than the rideshare vehicle caused the accident, then that driver’s insurance policy will provide coverage.

When you hire us to handle your case, we will identify the liable party and sort out all the details, including the appropriate insurance policy to file your claim. The team at Oresky & Associates, PLLC has won over $400 million in settlements and verdicts for our clients. Let us help you too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Can I Sue For A Work-Related Injury?
You can sue for a work-related injury under certain conditions. Typically, employers in New York have immunity from personal injury lawsuits, but there are exceptions. There may be other liable parties (other than your employer) who do not have this immunity. You can read our full blog post here to find out more.
Why should I contact a spinal cord injury attorney after a spinal cord accident?
The challenges that a spinal cord victim faces are ongoing and life-changing. A skilled attorney who can fight for your rights, compensation, and continuing medical expenses is invaluable.
I Have Insurance, and I Have the Other Driver’s Insurance Information. Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Unfortunately, people are not always honest, and you need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you gather evidence that you cannot get on your own. Of course, you need the accident report, but you also may need witness statements, certified weather reports,  photos from the accident scene,  driver statements,  and other evidence to establish liability.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?
When you are involved in a car accident, there is a free consultation. If you have a case, you pay no fees until we win your case. The cost calculates as a percentage of the amount you are awarded as compensation through settlement or jury trial, also known as a contingency fee basis.
What are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.

Uber’s Insurance Policy

The following is an overview of Uber’s insurance policy.

  • If the Uber driver is not working (i.e., their app is turned off), the Uber insurance policy does not apply, and their personal insurance policy would cover the driver.
  • If the Uber driver has their app turned on and is waiting for a ride request, Uber provides third-party liability coverage if the rideshare driver’s private insurance does not. Coverage includes $50,000 in bodily injury liability per person, $100,000 in bodily injury per accident, and $25,000 in property damage liability.
  • If the Uber driver has received a ride request and is en route to pick up a passenger or is actively transporting a passenger in their vehicle, Uber provides $1 million in third-party liability coverage.

Other parties, such as another driver, may also be liable for your injuries, so work with an attorney at our firm to sort out liability and pursue the appropriate insurance policy and responsible parties.  Give us a call today to get started: (718) 993-9999.
