Uber Car Accident FAQs

Accidents involving ride share vehicles require attorneys to follow unique rules and  guidelines to obtain compensation for client’s injuries and damages. Therefore, it is a  good idea to find an attorney who regular handles uber accident claims and has a  thorough understanding of how Uber accidents work. This is important for both drivers  and passengers involved in uber accidents in South Florida. In this blog post, we will go  through some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to uber car  accidents.  

What Should You Do After an Uber Accident? 

Like all other car accidents, it is required that you call 911 as soon as you are involved in  an accident. Make sure to seek medical treatment immediately after being involved in an  accident. If you take too long to seek medical care, you may be waiving some of the  benefits you have under Florida PIP law. If you are asked any questions by Uber’s  insurance company, you should be careful. Responding to questions from Uber’s insurance company may hurt your injury claim. Always know that you have the right to  remain silent and speak only in the presence of your lawyer, or after receiving his or her  guidance. It is important to note that insurance companies and adjusters are not your  friend. Insurance companies look for the slightest inconsistencies in your statements and  will use them against you. 

Does Uber Cover Claims Filed by Passengers? 

Yes, however drivers and passengers are afforded different rights when it comes to Uber  car accident claims. A passenger always has the upper hand because they are rarely  liable for the accident. When a passenger is badly injured in an accident, they can still be  awarded incredible compensation. Overall, in comparison to other types of car accident  insurance limits, uber insurance limits are quite high. In fact, Uber’s insurance policies  cover a wide range of injury and damage claims. This is great news for passengers  involved in uber accidents. Uber’s insurance company will pay for your claims even if you  were in another car that was hit by an Uber driver. However, the insurance company will  only pay if the Uber driver was at fault. In that case, you will be paid for your injuries and  any damage on your vehicle stemming from the accident.
