Have You Been Injured in a Uber Accident?

Top-rated Atlanta Uber Accident Lawyer

Uber is replacing taxis across Atlanta, with more people hailing an Uber for everything from a drive home from a bar to a ride to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. However, with increased usage, we’re also seeing more people needing to call an Atlanta Uber accident lawyer.

If you were a passenger in an Uber that was involved in a car accident or were involved in an accident with an Uber driver, you may be entitled to compensation.

When Should I Call an Atlanta Uber Accident Lawyer? 

Uber and Lyft drivers are responsible for millions of trips daily. While most trips end without incident, some end with an accident. You should follow these key steps after an accident:

  • First, call the police to the scene of the accident and make a police report.
  • Collect any information possible. Take pictures and videos, ask witnesses for their information and keep this information as proof of the accident, damages, road conditions, and more.
  • Seek medical attention immediately.
  • File a claim with the insurance company.
  • Hire a personal injury lawyer.

The faster that you call a lawyer, the better. You have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim in court. If you miss the statute of limitations, you won’t have a chance to seek the compensation that you deserve.

What Happens After an Uber Accident? 

Following an Uber accident, it’s important to take steps to protect yourself as a victim of someone else’s negligence. You’ll want to follow the steps above to build your case, such as collecting information, taking pictures and videos, and filing a claim with an insurance company.

When you file a claim, you should immediately contact us to discuss your accident.

The next steps may include:

  • Insurance companies calling you to get a statement
  • Settlement offers that are often low-ball figures

Insurers want to pay as little as possible for your claim, so it’s essential to work with a lawyer who understands what your case is worth. Accepting a settlement is ill-advised without consulting with an attorney first.

What Our Clients Say

Does Uber Have Insurance? 

Yes, Uber has a $1 million insurance policy for drivers, but the policy isn’t as beneficial as you might think. Uber uses their $1 million policy to advertise their service and help gain user confidence.

The problem is that the policy is meant to protect Uber from losses.

When you examine the policy, you’ll quickly realize that the scope of the coverage is limited and there are stipulations that are difficult to meet. The key points of the policy that are important to you are:

  • Policy terms only apply on a paid trip
  • Terms only apply when a passenger is in the vehicle

If you just stepped out of the vehicle and an accident occurred, the terms can be murky. Furthermore, the insurance will only apply when the damages from the accident are higher than the personal insurance held by the driver.

In cases where an Uber driver is en route to a pick-up location and an accident occurs, Uber wouldn’t be a party in the lawsuit.

Due to the severe limitations of Uber’s insurance policy, it’s important to work with a lawyer who specializes in Uber accidents. We know how to navigate Uber’s complex insurance policy to help you receive the compensation that you deserve for your injuries, pain and suffering, and loss of work.


How Much Is Your Case Worth?

Who Is Responsible for My Uber Accident Injuries? 

An Uber accident is more complex than a regular accident. Multiple parties are involved in an Uber accident, and it’s up to your lawyer to determine who is responsible for your injuries. The following parties may be held liable:

  • Driver: The Uber driver may be responsible for your accident. Drivers have a duty of care for passengers, so they could be held liable if their speeding or reckless driving caused the accident.
  • Uber: Uber, as a company, may be held liable for the actions of its drivers. The company may try to deny responsibility because drivers are independent contractors, but we’ll work to argue that there is shared liability for the accident.
  • Third-party: A third party may be held liable for negligence and be part of the lawsuit. For example, if the vehicle had a known defect and caused the accident, the part or vehicle manufacturer may be liable for the injuries.

Uber does have insurance that can provide compensation when the driver’s insurance proves to be insufficient. Depending on the case and the circumstances surrounding the accident, it may be possible to cite past rulings against Uber where the company was held liable for a passenger’s or opposing driver’s injuries.

In general, bringing multiple parties into the lawsuit improves the chances of an award being paid.
