Uber drivers continue to  become more prevalent, however, as a result of which the number of accidents involving Uber vehicles also increases. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to recover damages for your injuries if you are involved in an Uber accident. This blog post will explain how the Uber accident claims process works and how we can help you obtain compensation for your damages if you have been involved in an Uber accident.

Uber Car Accident Claims 

In a lawsuit involving ride-sharing services and personal injury, there are two possible categories of defendants: the ride-sharing service itself, and the person responsible for the incident causing the injury. Both parties can be named as defendants in a lawsuit by the plaintiff. There is a critical question in actions alleging liability on the part of ride-sharing services as to whether the individual drivers are their employees or simply independent contractors. A plaintiff in an action alleging liability on the part of a ride-sharing service for personal injury will generally seek compensatory damages. These compensatory damages may include amounts for physical injury, medical expenses, exacerbation of preexisting medical conditions, and permanent disability. 

What Does Uber’s Rideshare Insurance Cover in Florida? 

In the event that an Uber driver hits you in another vehicle, the company’s insurance company will pay for your damages. There are several types of persons that can make a claim against Uber’s insurance carrier: uber drivers, uber passengers, drivers that are hit by an uber driver and their passengers. There are many elements that determine how your insurance claim will be processed. One important factor will be the type of coverage that is available to you after being involved in an uber accident. Of course, this will depend on your role in the crash. Another important factor will be the severity of your injuries and who is at fault for the accident. It is important to note that since Florida is a no fault state, at fault drivers can still recover compensation. This includes paying for property damage to your vehicle and any injuries. Uber’s insurance policy will only pay if the driver was to blame for the accident. Further, the limits of Uber’s insurance are much lower if the at-fault Uber driver was not on their way to pick someone up or in the process of transporting a passenger to their destination.
