Trying to decide whether to go forward with your Uber car accident lawsuit? Here are a few reasons why you should seriously consider it.
Uber is extremely convenient. All you have to do is press a button and you can get a ride practically anywhere within a matter of minutes.
What’s not convenient is when you get into an accident and need to file an Uber car accident lawsuit to recover damages, either as a regular motorist or as a passenger in an Uber driver’s vehicle.
As is the case with any car accident case, you will need to prove two things—that damages occurred and that someone is legally liable. Here’s why you should pursue your case with the help of an experienced attorney.
Uber Drivers Are Covered for up to $1 Million When They Have a Passenger
If you are in an accident with an Uber driver while they are transporting a passenger, you should not have to worry about adequate coverage. Rideshare companies are required to provide $1 million in coverage, which should be more than enough to take care of any injuries and property damage that you suffer.
Furthermore, those who drive for Uber are required to carry personal insurance as well as rideshare insurance, so there should be no period during which an Uber driver is not insured, even if they do not have a passenger.
Uber Has a Responsibility to Other Drivers and Passengers
Even if you are in an accident as an Uber passenger and the Uber driver was not at fault, you may be able to file a claim against Uber. This may be necessary if the at-fault driver does not have adequate insurance.
It is good to know that even in situations where Uber is not legally at fault that passengers can be covered under their insurance.
What Damages Can You Recover from an Uber Car Accident Lawsuit?
As is the case in other car accidents, you may be eligible to receive compensation for:
- Past and future medical care and rehabilitation services
- Physical pain and suffering
- Loss of use of a bodily function or permanent disfigurement
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
You should speak to an attorney about what damages you should pursue before moving forward with your Uber car accident lawsuit.
