Jackson Uber Accident Attorney
It doesn’t get any more convenient than an Uber, but if you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, things can become pretty complicated pretty quickly. Fortunately, an experienced Jackson Uber accident attorney can help you with that.
Who Is Responsible?
The fact is that, even though you have been injured in an Uber accident, Uber itself is not exactly responsible. This is because Uber drivers are independent contractors who are not employed by Uber. Nevertheless, there are instances when Uber’s insurance will cover your claim. Consider the following:
- If you are injured by a negligent Uber driver (whether as a passenger or in another vehicle), your claim will proceed through Uber’s robust coverage as long as the driver had an Uber passenger or was on the way to pick one up.
- If the Uber driver who leaves you injured is on the app waiting to connect with an Uber passenger, Uber’s coverage will likely take up where the driver’s personal coverage ends.
- If the Uber driver isn’t on the app at the time of the accident – even if he or she recently hopped off – the driver’s own insurance is solely responsible.
The damages you incur as a result of being injured by an Uber driver’s negligence can be considerable, and obtaining just compensation will play an important role in your ability to regain your health and strength.
