San Antonio Uber Accident Lawyer
Have you been injured in an Uber accident because of someone else’s negligence? Contact an Uber accident attorney in San Antonio to file a lawsuit and obtain compensation for your damages.
When you’re riding as a passenger in an Uber, you’re not typically paying attention to the road ahead because you trust the driver to keep you safe. In the event that a car accident occurs and you get injured, proving liability can be complex because you may not have seen what happened or who was at fault. Although it’s clear that you shouldn’t be held liable for your injuries, how will you seek compensation?
Hiring an experienced San Antonio Uber accident lawyer can be the key to navigating the legal process and winning your injury settlement. At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we can investigate your accident and work with the insurance companies in your wreck to help you obtain the money you deserve. If necessary, we’ll go to court and negotiate on your behalf so you can focus on a full recovery.
Why Uber Drivers May Get Into Accidents in San Antonio
Uber drivers are just like other drivers on the road and they can get into accidents for similar reasons. But, they may get into accidents more frequently because of the circumstances of their job.
Uber drivers may be on the road more often than typical drivers, which puts them at a higher risk for accidents. Uber drivers may also be driving faster to earn more money per hour. Similarly, Uber drivers may be drowsy while driving because they’re driving late into the night or early in the morning to make the best money.
There are instances, however, when the colliding driver in your Uber accident will be at fault for the wreck. Third-party factors could also be involved such as roadway hazards, weather conditions, and car defects. Performing a thorough investigation will be crucial to identifying who or what is liable for the wreck and your resulting damages.
What Liability Coverage Does Uber Provide?
Both Uber drivers and Uber passengers are in good hands when driving or riding with Uber because the company’s insurance policy provides ample coverage.
Uber’s liability coverage includes the following:
- When the driver is logged into the app but hasn’t accepted a ride, Uber provides coverage for any accident in which the driver is at fault with a maximum of $50,000 per person injured, $100,000 maximum injury liability, and $25,000 maximum property damage liability.
- When the driver has accepted a ride, Uber provides coverage with a maximum of $1 million.
If you’re a passenger in the Uber and your driver was at fault for causing an accident, you should be covered up to $1 million for any damages incurred. If it’s determined that the colliding driver or another third-party was at fault, then you’ll need to file a personal injury lawsuit against them in order to obtain a settlement.
