Rockdale County Uber Accident Attorney
Uber offers a great way to get around, and there’s little not to love about the convenience. As more and more Uber drivers join the gig economy, however, the number of dangerous Uber accidents out there continues to grow. If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, an experienced Rockdale County Uber accident lawyer is standing by to help.
Who Is Responsible?
If you have been injured in an Uber accident, the question of who is responsible for the accident is an interesting one. And while your claim will be unique to the situation at hand, one thing you can count on is that Uber itself will not be responsible (Uber does not employ its drivers – they are, instead, independent contractors). Depending upon the situation, however, Uber’s insurance coverage for its drivers may cover your damages. Consider the following scenarios:
- If you are injured as an Uber passenger in an accident that was caused by another driver, your claim will proceed just like any other – through the at-fault driver’s personal insurance.
- If you are injured in an Uber accident that was caused by the Uber driver when he or she had a passenger or was on the way to pick one up, Uber’s coverage comes into play.
- If you are injured in an Uber accident that was caused by the Uber driver when he or she had neither passengers nor waiting passengers, Uber’s coverage will take over where the driver’s personal coverage ends.
