Injured in an accident while riding in (or driving) an Uber vehicle? Our Dallas attorneys can help you file a claim and recover the money you’re owed.
Technology has improved everything involved with our everyday life, including advancements in how we experience our night life. Uber (which includes UberX, UberXL, UberSELECT, and UberBLACK) is a ride-sharing service app that allows a user to request instantaneous transportation at the push of a button on a smart phone.
While simplifying transportation needs for today’s technology age (and helping to reduce the high number of drunk driving accidents) a question arises regarding issues of insurance claims to passengers (and drivers) of Uber, and persons involved in accidents caused by an Uber driver.
UberBLACK is a division of Uber in which hired limo drivers are contracted by the company to transit Uber users when dispatched. These drivers are somewhat covered for their insurance program with the Uber company, however the question arises of the rider’s insurance policy once they become a passenger in the Uber program.
Uber, car accidents, and personal injury claims.
Which insurance policy is in position to cover costs associated with the driver’s injuries, a passenger’s injuries, and damage caused to the driver’s car? Uber claims these drivers as “contract partners,” and Uber states no responsibilities for any of the driver’s actions while carrying a passenger.
As of now, Uber claims that all contracted drivers meet state requirements for minimum insurance standards. However, many insurance agencies claim that these drivers risk voiding their personal policies by participating in the rideshare program (commercial use rather than personal use), leaving the possibility of uninsured drivers and passengers. A car accident caused by a contracted Uber driver can lead to several issues when it comes to filing an insurance claim, but luckily our attorneys understand this challenge and are prepared to tenaciously fight for every penny you deserve.
