Stockbridge Uber Accident Attorney
While Uber rides are nothing if not convenient, accidents involving Ubers are both dangerous and exceptionally complicated. If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, your best course of action is to work closely with an experienced Uber accident lawyer in Stockbridge.
The Uber Company
Yes, Uber is a massive company, but the guy or gal who’s driving you around like your own personal driver is not an employee of Uber but is, instead, an independent contractor. While this setup helps Uber cleverly bypass a good deal of liability, it does little to help you if you’ve been injured in an Uber accident.
As the law rushes to catch up with the rideshare phenomenon, Uber has had to make some concessions along the way and does insure its drivers now, but this coverage only applies in certain situations.
Uber and Insurance
If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, the critical insurance component is complicated, but the basics include:
- If the Uber driver is on the Uber app and either has a passenger or is en route to pick up a passenger, Uber’s insurance coverage will pay out up to $1,000,000 for people injured by the negligence of the Uber.
- If the Uber driver is on the Uber app but has no passenger or potential passenger, Uber provides $50,000 bodily injury insurance (up to $100,000 per accident) and $25,000 in property damage coverage.
- If the Uber driver isn’t on the app, the accident will proceed exactly as any other car accident would.
