Uber has taken the transportation industry across the country by storm, and it is no different in Georgia. It is easy and affordable to summon an Uber from your phone and not have to exchange payment. However, Uber drivers are not specially trained and many of them make errors that can cause serious accidents. You can also be hit by another car while you are riding in an Uber. In either situation, you can suffer injuries and face a long road to recovery.
As an Uber accident lawyer in Greensboro, Ben F. Windham has seen firsthand how challenging Uber claims can be. Our firm helps all types of car crash victims, including those involved in rideshare accidents. Call today to discuss a possible case.
Uber Accident Insurance Claims
Uber accidents can hurt Uber passengers, people in other vehicles, or people walking or riding bicycles. If the Uber driver was to blame, anyone injured should file an insurance claim against the driver. If the driver was actively picking up or transporting a passenger, Uber’s $1 million insurance policy will also apply. This is important information, especially if your injuries are severe and your losses exceed the individual driver’s policy.
Uber drivers can be at fault for accidents for many reasons, including:
- Fatigued driving
- Distracted driving
- Violating traffic laws
- Aggressive driving
Other drivers may also be to blame for your Uber accident, and in that case, you would need to file a claim with the third-party driver’s insurance.
