Uber Accident Lawyer

New York City Uber Accident Lawyer

Ridesharing apps, such as Uber, have exploded in popularity in New York City, due to their convenience and superior prices compared to the traditional taxi services in the city. However, despite being incredibly popular alternatives to transportation, Uber may have some questionable practices and policies, especially regarding accidents and the damages and injuries incurred as a result.

Due to the lack of regulation and policy, simple questions such as liability can be complicated, and pursuing compensation can be just as difficult. If you were a victim of an Uber car accident, contact an NYC Uber accident lawyer from Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP to help you explore your options for compensation.

Why Should You Pick RMFW Law For Your Uber Collision?

At Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP in New York City, we can help you secure compensation after an Uber accident. We have advocated for injured people for nearly a century and recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients. Our experienced New York City personal injury attorneys have the knowledge, skills, and dedication to tenaciously pursue full compensation for you after an Uber accident.

Uber Regulations

One of the main hurdles of seeking compensation in an Uber accident is the lack of concrete regulation for the industry. Uber drivers are not regulated in the same way as taxis. Uber vehicles are owned, maintained, and operated by individuals. There is less certainty with Uber as to how recently the vehicle has been inspected and whether the driver has been drug-screened or background checked. Although the company claims that all drivers now undergo background checks, driver safety education, and vehicle screenings, questions of driver and passenger safety still arise.

Who is Liable for Damages in a New York City Uber Accident?

Liability can be difficult to determine when pursuing compensation for an Uber car accident. Uber maintains that its drivers are just “contract” employees. In doing so, Uber maintains a legal distance between the company and its drivers, potentially skirting any questions of liability or responsibility on their part. After a crash, it is often unclear who should be held accountable – the driver, Uber, an insurance company, or some combination of the three.

Speak to a New York City Uber crash attorney to find out who could potentially be liable for your accident and what you should do next.

Does Uber Provide Insurance to Their Drivers?

While Uber drivers are required to carry automobile insurance, the company provides certain insurance coverage while a driver is on the Uber platform:

  • While the driver is waiting for a request, Uber provides third-party liability coverage with limits of at least $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident for bodily injury, plus $25,000 per accident for property damage.
  • During a trip and while the driver is on the way to pick up a customer, Uber provides third-party liability coverage up to a minimum of $1,000,000 per accident; uninsured or underinsured bodily injury coverage of at least $1,000,000 per accident; and contingent collision and comprehensive coverage for the driver’s vehicle.

Despite providing coverage, seeking compensation is much like dealing with other insurance companies. They are often unwilling to provide the damages you seek, instead opting to offer an initial settlement that is far lower than is required for your damages. In these cases, it is highly recommended to seek an experienced NYC Uber collision attorney who is skilled at aggressively negotiating for the maximum possible compensation for your damages.
