Uber Accidents

Thanks to Uber and other ridesharing services, the taxi is increasingly a thing of the past. If you need to get somewhere quickly and don’t have a car handy, chances are, you navigate to the Uber app on your phone and order a ride. Yet while Uber may be a more affordable and convenient means of getting from Point A to Point B, the same risks of entering a vehicle apply: An accident can happen no matter how close or far you are from your destination. This prompts the question: What happens if you get hurt as a passenger in an Uber-affiliated vehicle?

  • Recovering Compensation Following an Uber Accident

    If you suffer an injury in an accident while riding in an Uber, you have several options to recover compensation. If the Uber driver was at fault for the accident, you may be able to file a claim against the driver. However, this may not be the best option. It may be difficult to collect damages if the driver has only a personal car insurance policy: The driver must have a commercial auto insurance policy or a personal injury policy with a provision providing coverage for ridesharing. The good news is, you may be covered by Uber’s liability insurance and bodily injury policy, which covers up to $1 million in damages per accident.

    If the other motorist was at fault for the accident, you may need to make a claim against their insurance carrier or sue them to recover compensation. In certain situations, you may make a claim against Uber itself, but because the company’s drivers are considered contractors rather than employees, it’s difficult to hold Uber liable for the actions of its drivers.

  • Safety Concerns With Uber

    Uber recently unveiled Jump scooters, which can be found on the company’s app. Unfortunately, these devices have proved dangerous in some instances, as was the case for an Atlanta woman who was thrown from the electrical device due to purportedly faulty brakes. The woman suffered serious neurological problems, required 15 stitches to the head, and underwent reconstructive facial surgery.

    Meanwhile, in its long-awaited safety study, the ridesharing company disclosed an alarming incidence of sexual misconduct. In fact, there were 3,000 reports of Uber-related sexual assault in the United States last year, underscoring a major safety concern for riders everywhere. The report, which divides sexual misconduct into more than 20 categories, revealed 235 alleged rapes last year and thousands of reports of assault ranging from unwanted touching and kissing to attempted rape.
