Bronx Uber Accident Lawyer

Even with so many taxicabs in the city, ridesharing services such as Uber have become very popular. Uber provides a convenient way to get around the Bronx and the rest of the city. With just a touch of a button, a person can request an Uber and be on their way in just a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, Uber drivers can become involved in a crash just like any other motorist on the road. The aftermath of these accidents, unfortunately, is much more complex than other auto accidents. Below, our Bronx Uber accident lawyer explains how you can obtain the compensation you need afterward.

Filing an Insurance Claim After an Uber Accident

The first step in obtaining compensation after any auto accident is to file an insurance claim. If you have auto insurance, you may have to first file a claim with your own provider. If you were hurt as a passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian and you do not have auto insurance, you may have to file a claim with Uber’s insurance, or the Uber driver’s insurance. The insurer you file a claim with depends on the Uber driver’s activity at the time of the crash.

  • Driver had the app turned off: If the Uber driver had the app turned off, they are treated just like any other motorist on the road. As such, you must file a claim with the driver’s personal insurance policy if they were off duty at the time of the accident.
  • Driver had the app turned on, but was not providing a ride: If the Uber driver has the app turned on but they have not yet accepted a ride, Uber will provide limited liability insurance of $50,000 for one person or $100,000 for the entire accident.
  • Driving was providing a ride: If the Uber driver had the app turned on and was providing a ride, Uber provides much more insurance coverage. In these instances, the company will provide up to $1.25 million for bodily injury, death, and property damage.

How a Bronx Uber Accident Lawyer Can Help

You may think about filing a claim on your own after an Uber accident, but this is a mistake that could cost you valuable compensation. When working with a Bronx Uber accident lawyer, they will handle many details of your case, including:

  • Accurate valuation of your case: It is not always easy to identify all of your losses right after a crash. A lawyer will help determine all of your present and future losses so you obtain the full damages you deserve.
  • Shield you from blame: If you were a passenger in an Uber, you cannot be blamed for the crash. However, if you were another driver, pedestrian, or cyclist, Uber may try to blame you for the crash.
  • Navigate commercial insurance: Commercial insurance is incredibly complicated. Our lawyer can fight back against the insurer if they try to limit the damages you receive.
