How does Insurance Work After an Uber Accident?
Many Uber accident victims have more questions than answers after the crash. One of the questions we often hear is how Uber insurance works. If you were injured in an accident with an Uber driver who was not working at the time of the crash (meaning they did not have Uber the app engaged), the driver’s personal liability insurance policy will be in force.
If, on the other hand, you were injured by an Uber driver who was actively working for the company at the time of your crash, then Uber’s liability policy would apply. Examples of an accident that Uber’s insurance policy would cover are:
- Uber drivers who are dropping off or picking up passengers
- Uber drivers who have the app engaged while waiting to pick up a passenger
- Uber drivers who have passengers in their vehicles
Under most circumstances, the Uber policy will be in force anytime their driver has the app engaged and is actively working for the rideshare company. If you have questions about how insurance liability applies in a rideshare case, we can answer those during your free consultation.
What Are the Potential Recoverable Damages in a Florida Uber Accident Case?
If you suffered injury in an Uber accident, you likely have medical bills. It is also possible your accident-related injuries may keep you from working for a period. If an Uber accident damaged your vehicle, you could recover the cost of repairing or replacing it. All these financial losses are considered recoverable damages.
An Uber accident attorney from our firm will assess the total economic losses you incurred. Then we will seek to hold the negligent driver accountable by demanding that amount in recoverable damages with either an insurance claim or civil lawsuit.
How Much Is a Florida Uber Accident Case Worth?
The monetary amount of damages we demand in your case hinges on several factors. Every accident victim has a different level of injuries and medical bills. Additionally, your earning potential and how much time you miss from work are unique to your individual situation. A free case evaluation with our team can give you a clearer idea of your potential case’s value.
Is There a Time Limit on Uber Accident Cases?
If you wish to seek damages for an Uber accident in Florida, you have a set time to do it. Florida has a two-year statute of limitations on Uber accidents and all personal injury cases, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). That means you have two years from your accident date to demand damages from the negligent party. If you hire us to represent you, we can take care of your entire case and file it on time.
