When we request public transportation from a rideshare app like Uber or Lyft, we trust that the driver will responsibly take us to our next destination. Unfortunately, accidents happen--even during an Uber ride. If you were injured while you were a passenger in an Uber, you are entitled to seek compensation. Seeking compensation in a rideshare accident can be more complicated than a typical car accident because it involves multiple parties.
If you were involved in an accident during your Uber trip, you could inform Uber of your accident, and they will refund you for your trip. All you have to do is submit a feedback report or alert the company through their “help” option. But you will want more than a refund if you suffered injuries in the accident.
If the Uber driver had the app on while the accident occurred, Uber’s insurance policy covers the driver and the passenger up to one million dollars in damages. If you were a passenger injured in an Uber accident, you would need to handle your case with Uber. The driver’s personal auto insurance won’t honor claims that occurred during commercial or paid driving.
If you were injured in an Uber accident, you need an experienced attorney on your side. In many cases, Uber’s insurance policy won’t cover both the driver and passenger’s medical expenses or lost wages. Our Houston Uber accident lawyers can analyze your case and help you calculate past and future accident-related costs so that you obtain the compensation you deserve. We have the legal experience and resources you need to secure your future.
