Uber Driver Injuries and Georgia Workers Compensation Claims

Uber drivers who have been injured while driving for Uber may find themselves being denied Georgia workers' compensation benefits. This can happen when Uber classifies their drivers as independent contractors. Private auto accident insurance companies are also becoming more reluctant to payout on accident injury claims that arise from Uber-related accidents. This is because some Uber drivers failed to declare on their accident insurance policy that they would be using their vehicle for commercial purposes, like driving for Uber. These legal issues often leave injured drivers, passengers, and pedestrians without any insurance coverage while driving for or using Uber.

Workers' compensation, rideshare, and insurance law are new and complicated. Therefore, Uber drivers who have been hurt in an accident should call Montlick Injury Attorneys for their free consultation and speak to a qualified attorney who can advise them on their situation.

Another serious legal matter with rideshare services is that companies like Uber sometimes do not provide auto collision insurance coverage for their drivers, depending on the state. Also, private auto accident insurance companies often try to avoid paying accident injury claims when their policyholder does not disclose that they are using their private vehicle as a rideshare or delivery service. 

While Uber drivers should buy the appropriate business auto insurance coverage, most Uber drivers do not purchase this type of accident coverage. This puts themselves and their passengers at financial risk after an accident. Auto accident insurance coverage issues can pose extreme legal and financial hardships when the accident victims are injured or killed in Uber accidents, and there is no accident insurance coverage to pay their claims. 

The Legal Issues Surrounding Uber, Lyft, and Other Ride-sharing Services

Uber is the biggest and fastest-growing rideshare company in the country. Uber's services provide another alternative to taxicab services and public transportation. However, rideshare services present new and challenging legal issues, including low insurance coverage limits, workers' compensation issues, and insurance gaps. Some Uber passengers involved in crashed while riding in Uber vehicles can find themselves at risk of not being compensated for their injuries, medical expenses, wage losses, property damage, and other accident-related damages.

In one wrongful death case, an Uber driver crashed into three pedestrians, tragically killing a toddler. Uber refused to pay compensation to the victim's family because they said they were not responsible for the fatal accident since the Uber driver was not hauling a passenger at the moment of the crash, even though the Uber driver was using the Uber app and was waiting to be dispatched to a new uber ride job. The victim's family then filed a wrongful death lawsuit asserting that Uber was liable because Uber acted negligently by ignoring the driver's prior conviction for reckless driving.

This Uber wrongful death case illustrates the problematic legal issues concerning Uber's liability and rideshare insurance coverage issues. In another case, the victim's rideshare app's terms of service changed and forced the passengers to agree that they would not file a lawsuit against Uber in the event of an accident during the ride. In another Uber crash, the passenger sought compensation for medical expenses from Uber but found out that the coverage was denied because the rider had agreed not to file a lawsuit against Uber, and therefore driver became the sole party responsible.
