Uber Accident Compensation Claims

Uber and other rideshare services have become essential services for many people in their daily lives. Uber provides a lot of convenience for users and income prospects for entrepreneurial-minded drivers. Uber also provides several other delivery services, such as food and package delivery services and even helicopter services in certain cities. Uber accident claims are complex cases since there are multiple parties involved in these types of crashes, including the Uber driver, Uber, and the Uber passenger(s). When Uber accidents or assaults transpire in these situations, obtaining compensation for those hurt is not always clear. This is precisely the reason accident victims should contact an experienced Uber accident attorney to understand the appropriate steps to take and how to maximize their economic recovery. The trial lawyers at Montlick Injury Attorneys are here to help. If you or a loved one have been hurt due to the negligent actions of someone else, call us for your Free Consultation.

Rideshare Accident Lawyers for Uber, Lyft & DoorDash Injury Lawsuits

Do Pedestrians Injured by an Uber Driver Have a Case?

Those who have been struck by an Uber driver and are injured should have a claim, even if they were not customers at the time of the crash. If you or a loved one have been struck and injured or if you tragically lost a member of your family in a pedestrian collision caused by a negligent Uber driver, you or your loved one could be qualified to receive substantial economic compensation. Our national plaintiff's law firm represents accident injury victims and families who lost loved ones throughout the United States. We represent clients who have been harmed in the following circumstances:

  1. Cycling/Bicycle Accidents Caused by Uber Drivers
  2. Struck By an Uber Driver While Walking or Running

Uber Driver Accident Injuries and Workers Compensation Claims

Another type of legal case that our national law firm handles is incidents involving Uber drivers who are injured while working for Uber and who find themselves being denied workers' compensation benefits when Uber denies their claim or classifies them as independent contractors. 

One issue that is becoming more common is private insurance companies denying injury claims that arise from Uber drivers. The accident claims are often denied because the auto accident insurance company asserts that the Uber driver's personal car is being used for commercial purposes, and this was not disclosed when the Uber driver purchased or renewed their auto accident insurance policy. This legal issue can leave injured Uber drivers, passengers, and pedestrians without the insurance coverage they need to pay for their medical bills and other damages. 

Workers' compensation law, rideshare service coverages and responsibilities, and insurance law are complicated. If you are an Uber driver who was injured in any type of accident caused by someone else's negligence, call Montlick Injury Attorneys today for your free consultation and speak to one of our qualified Uber accident attorneys who can advise you on your situation.

How Does Rideshare (Uber) Accident Insurance Work?

One additional serious legal issue concerning rideshare services is that some rideshare companies do not provide auto accident insurance coverage for their drivers. Moreover, private insurance companies will try to avoid paying on auto accident injury claims when their policyholder fails to disclose that they would be using their personal vehicle as a rideshare or delivery service. 

While Uber drivers should buy the proper business auto insurance coverage, most Uber drivers fail to purchase this type of auto collision insurance coverage, putting themselves, their passengers, and pedestrians at risk. Auto insurance coverage issues like these often pose significant legal and financial hardships when victims are hurt or killed in accidents involving rideshare drivers, especially when there is no auto accident insurance coverage to pay the accident victims' claims. 

If you or a member of your family has been harmed in an Uber accident, our experienced Uber Accident attorneys are here to help. We fight hard and work hard to recover the maximum financial compensation possible under state law.  

After an Uber accident, it is crucial that you protect your valuable legal rights and speak to a Montlick Injury Attorney as soon after the accident as possible. The time to file your claim is limited by state law. So, call Montlick Injury Attorneys to receive your Free Consultation by calling 1-800-LAW-NEED. Calls are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

The Legal Issues Surrounding Uber Services in the News

Uber is the largest and fastest-growing rideshare business in the United States. Uber's rideshare service allows users to download its app and "order" an Uber driver on demand. Uber passengers may also choose the type of motor vehicle and review a driver's rating before accepting the ride. Uber drivers typically use their own personal motor vehicles to pick up passengers. As ridesharing services grow in popularity, new legal issues involving workers' compensation issues, insurance gaps, and low insurance coverage limits will arise. Some passengers involved in crashes while riding in Uber driver vehicles may be at risk of not being sufficiently compensated for their injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and other compensatory damages.

In one Uber wrongful death case, an Uber driver hit three pedestrians, sadly killing a six-year-old child. Uber allegedly tried to avoid paying claims explaining that it was not liable for the fatal accident since the Uber driver did not have an Uber customer in the car at the time of the collision, although the Uber driver was using the Uber app at the time of the crash and the driver was waiting to be dispatched to a job. The victim's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit asserting that Uber ignored the driver's prior reckless driving conviction. There are many other facts and circumstances that can be presented to the court that make Uber a party to an accident case.

This Uber accident case shows the troubling legal issues that surround rideshare company liability and insurance coverage matters. Moreover, rideshare apps' terms of service often require rideshare passengers to agree that they will not file a lawsuit against the company in the event of a collision during the ride. In another Uber crash with injuries, the passenger who was injured sought monetary compensation for medical expenses from Uber, and Uber's auto accident insurance company denied the claim because the rider agreed not to file suit against Uber, and the driver was held solely responsible.

What to Do After an Uber Accident

If you or a family member have been harmed in an Uber accident or a vicious assault by an Uber driver, gather evidence at the scene, obtain medical attention, and contact Montlick Injury Attorneys for your Free Consultation at 1-800-LAW-NEED.

After you or your loved one have been harmed in a traffic accident or assault, it is essential that you follow these important steps. In some situations, a victim might not be able to follow these steps due to their medical condition. The most critical action victims should take is to seek medical attention immediately following the incident to treat and document their injuries. 

The following actions can help you protect your valuable legal rights:

  1. Stay calm. The best first step to take is to remain calm. 
  2. Check yourself and your passengers for injuries. After an accident or assault, check yourself and everyone involved for life-threatening injuries. All injured people should stay inside the vehicle until emergency services arrive. A substantial number of injuries caused by car accidents are not immediately noticeable. For example, some accident victims experience head injuries, making them feel like they only have a headache. However, a headache could mean they suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. Pain is often masked by adrenalin and the initial shock that follows a serious car accident. For this reason, it is best to ride in an ambulance or ride in a private vehicle (when injuries are not life-threatening) to the nearest emergency room. 
  3. Dial 911. It is crucial to call 911 right after an accident. It is very important to have law enforcement and emergency medical services at the accident scene to help the injured and for law enforcement to create a traffic accident report. If you are an Uber passenger, you must make sure that you are listed in the accident report. 
  4. Photograph the accident scene. After the crash, take as many photos of the accident scene as possible. Also, take photos of the skid marks and the surrounding area of the road or intersection. 
  5. Exchange contact details with all people involved in the accident. Following an auto accident, you should obtain the following information from those involved in the accident: the driver's name, address, telephone, insurance carrier, and insurance policy number. Collect the contact information from all witnesses and other passengers. 
  6. Locate all witnesses. Locate all eyewitnesses and write down their full names, telephone numbers, addresses, license plate numbers, and email addresses. It is a good idea to collect their statements.
  7. Do not apologize or admit fault for causing the auto accident. Apologizing for the crash can be seen as an admission of guilt and leave you responsible for the accident.
  8. Contact Montlick Injury Attorneys. Call our law firm to discuss how to protect your legal rights and help you collect the necessary evidence.
  9. Contact your car accident insurance company.  This call should be placed with your attorney present to make sure that you are not tricked into making damaging statements. 

Are Requirements for Uber Drivers Too Lenient? 

Uber is a recent and revolutionary business concept that matches people who want to earn income using their privately-owned vehicles. 

Although Uber has greatly benefited society, rideshare services have also created several legal issues. For example, some Uber drivers are a danger to other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and their passengers. 

One noteworthy concern with Uber rideshare services is that Uber has a history of sloppy criminal background checks on its drivers, potentially putting passengers in danger. Contrarily, Uber's apps does not require background checks on its riders, potentially placing Uber drivers in danger. Moreover, Uber do not require any specialized driver training.

It is essential to identify these potential drawbacks before using Uber or other rideshare services.
