Our Uber Injury Attorneys Recover Financial Recovery for Our Naples Clients
As an Uber accident victim, you might assume the at-fault driver’s insurance company would immediately compensate you for your accident. After all, their policyholder pays the premium to cover the cost of any accidents they cause.
Unfortunately, many of our clients find that the at-fault driver’s insurance company wants to avoid paying their accident claims. Some insurers even deny liability. If this is happening in your situation, your medical bills may be rolling in while you can’t work because of your accident injuries. At times like these, an Uber accident attorney from GED Lawyers can step up and fight for you.
We have recovered millions of dollars in damages for our clients because we are committed to fighting for them. If we represent you, you will get a Naples car accident lawyer who believes in upholding our firm’s core values:

As an accident victim, you just want what you deserve. But the insurance company wants to pay you the least amount possible. That’s why negotiating with them can be a long and challenging process.

How Does Insurance Work in Uber Accidents?
Under Florida law, employers are responsible for their employee’s actions. That’s why Uber is required to carry liability insurance for all their drivers. If your accident involved an Uber driver who was working or driving for the company at the time of your accident, Uber’s liability policy pays for the damages. An Uber driver is actively working for the company when they have the app on and are doing work-related activities.
Examples of covered activities would include the following:
- Driving an Uber passenger (or passengers) to their destination
- Picking up a passenger
- Dropping off a passenger
- Waiting for a new passenger to pick up
However, there are also times when Uber drivers aren’t working; they are just driving their cars for personal use. If you have an accident with an Uber driver who isn’t working for the company and has the app off, the driver’s private liability insurance is responsible for the damages.
What Damages Can You Demand in an Uber Accident Case?
Any financial losses that result from your Uber accident qualify as recoverable damages. Examples of recoverable damages in an Uber accident include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Lost income
- Medical expenses
- Property damage, including the repair or replacement of your vehicle if it is a total loss
- Quality-of-life renovations to your home or car (e.g., installing access ramps)
If your accident-related injuries keep you from working on a long-term or permanent basis, our team will work with you to project your earning potential and demand that amount in damages.
