In an Accident Involving UBER? Here’s What to Do:

No matter if you were riding in a UBER, driving one, or hit by a UBER driver, there are steps you should take to protect yourself as well as your rights. 

Ensure Safety: Move out of harm’s way, check for injuries, and call 911 if necessary.

Document: Gather details of the UBER driver, other involved parties, and witnesses. Avoid admitting fault and take pictures of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and any injuries.

Call 911: Report the incident, even if there are no immediate injuries. A police report can play a crucial role in your case.

Seek Medical Attention: Even if injuries are not immediately apparent, seek medical help promptly. Remember shock and adrenaline pumping can mask symptoms.

Contact Your Insurance Provider: Provide accurate information without exaggeration.

Legal Assistance: Reach out to an experienced UBER accident attorney to help you navigate the legal complexities and ensure rightful compensation.

Every injury and case are different, yes, but following these steps gives you the best chance of success. 

Understanding Rideshare Policies and Insurance

UBER and Lyft have essentially the same insurance coverage policies. These differ depending on the driver’s status within the app. 

For example, if the driver is offline (not on the app) then the driver is covered by their personal auto insurance. If they’re in “Period 1,” then they’re on the app but have yet to accept a ride. In that case, they are covered by the rideshare company. 

Specifically, they have $100,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident, $50,000 per person, and $30,000 property damage liability coverage.

If the driver has accepted a ride, then they’re in “Period 2” and then they’re in “Period 3” if they have picked the rider up. In both periods, the rideshare company provides $1 million in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage and commercial auto insurance. In Period 2, UBER provides $50,000 for bodily injury coverage.

As you can see, this gets quite complicated very quickly. An experienced attorney can help. 

Calculating Compensation: Economic and Non-Economic Damages

The value of your UBER accident claim depends on factors such as the severity of injuries, medical expenses, lost earnings, and emotional distress. Economic damages cover tangible costs, while non-economic damages compensate for intangible losses like pain and suffering.
