Ridesharing companies such as Uber and Lyft are used frequently in Washington DC and Maryland as an alternative to taxicabs or public transportation. The convenience of always being just a few clicks away from a new destination has convinced many people that car ownership is a thing of the past. Uber and Lyft have soared in popularity and are now becoming dominant in the metro region.
UBER INSURANCE COVERAGE
Generally, these ridesharing companies use independent contractors who drive their own personal vehicles. However, although the driver may not be an actual employee, Uber holds a $1 million insurance policy for its drivers involved in Uber accidents during the time they were on a paid trip or if they were on the way to pick up a passenger. In other words, if an Uber driver is involved in a car crash at the time he or she was transporting a passenger, then Uber’s $1 million insurance coverage is applicable. On the other hand, if an Uber driver is offline, then it is likely that only the driver’s insurance would offer coverage.
It is important to speak to an experienced attorney about the specific circumstances of your case to see if Uber’s insurance should cover your damages or to determine what other options can be afforded to you following an Uber accident.
If you were involved in an accident as an Uber or Lyft passenger or your own vehicle was involved in a crash with a ridesharing car, you should not speak with an insurance company representative or adjuster. You should reach out to an experienced attorney instead. Our job is to fully investigate the accident and then make sure that you are treated fairly by the big insurance companies and by either Uber or Lyft.
If you have been involved in car accident with serious injuries, it may be impossible to safely exit your vehicle from either the driver’s or passenger’s side door. If it is safe to exit through one of the doors, you should take careful note of your surroundings. Remaining calm is paramount because if you panic things usually get worse. If you were injured in a serious car accident, contact us and we will do our utmost to help.
We will fully investigate your case in every way possible so that you are treated fairly. You deserve full compensation for your injuries and loss.
