If you have been injured in a car, truck or other vehicle accident and an Uber driver was involved, you have come to the right place to help you. Our Uber accident lawyers will know just what to do.
Why do you need a lawyer that knows about Uber to handle your Uber case?
Uber takes the position they are not legally responsible for the actions of their drivers. According to Uber, they are doing nothing more than providing a place for drivers and passengers to connect. They do not directly employ the drivers so they believe they are not accountable for the harm caused by them. This can be a difficult hurdle for an inexperienced personal injury attorney to overcome.
At the time of this writing, Florida does not require Uber to carry insurance to cover harms caused in a car crash. Fortunately, Uber voluntarily provides coverage of up to $1 million dollars when a driver is on their way to pick up a passenger or has a passenger in the vehicle. This coverage may not apply when the driver is looking for a fare but has not yet been linked up with a passenger. The Uber driver’s personal insurance might cover the claim when the driver is in between claims. However, that will only happen if the driver told his car insurance carrier that the vehicle was being used for work. Our Uber accident attorneys will know just how to sort through all these potential scenarios.
