WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES IN AN UBER CAR ACCIDENT?

  • Uber is a very popular ride-share service in NYC. Because of its convenience and affordability there has been a rapid increase in its use. Traffic accidents involving Uber cars are on the rise.

    If you are injured in an Uber car accident whether as a passenger, a pedestrian or another driver you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost income and other damages.

    Unlike passenger-vehicle collisions where the at-fault driver is liable for damages, the insurance liability process for an Uber car accident is more complicated.

    If the driver causes the accident while transporting passengers, Uber’s commercial vehicle insurance policy will likely pay for the damages. But if the accident happened while the driver was off duty, the driver’s insurance company may be responsible for the damages.

    If you have been hurt in an Uber car accident, you will need the guidance and support of an experienced attorney. An attorney can help you with the rather complicated Uber car accident liability process and give you a clear idea of what compensation you are entitled.
