Tampa Uber Accident Lawyer
Are you overwhelmed at the thought of going up against a large rideshare service like Uber? A highly trained Uber accident attorney in Tampa has the experience you need to make them pay.
The aftermath of an accident involving an Uber can be confusing. Do you file a claim with your own insurance company or the Uber driver’s? Does Uber cover your costs? What happens next? The only thing you may know for certain is that when someone else is to blame for the cause of your auto accident, you shouldn’t have to absorb the costs.
Your Tampa Uber accident lawyer at Anderson & Anderson will review the details of your accident case to determine whether Uber’s $1 million auto insurance policy will take effect, how you’ll obtain repayment if it doesn’t, and the types of losses you’ll be able to recover so you can get the most out of your civil claim.
Uber’s Million Dollar Auto Insurance Policy
Uber itself carries a $1 million auto insurance policy that extends only to passengers and those who their affiliates are involved in collisions with. As such, Uber requires their drivers to carry their own auto insurance coverage in addition to the coverage Uber carries.
Uber is clear on when their policy will take effect and when the Uber driver will pay. First, the Uber driver must be actively awaiting a ride and engaged in driver mode to be covered under the policy. Uber will then only cover the costs if the driver is heading to pick up a ride, and for the duration of the ride.
Once the passenger has been dropped off at their location, if the driver is waiting for another passenger, they will continue to be covered. However, if you are simply involved in an accident with someone who works as an Uber driver for a living, but they weren’t working at the time of the accident, Uber cannot reasonably be expected to cover your costs.
Driver Fault and Your Claim
Fortunately, the Uber driver should have their own auto insurance policy that will cover your losses when they are found to be at fault. Whether the driver was intoxicated, drowsy, aggressive, distracted, or otherwise culpable, you should never be stuck dealing with the financial costs and emotional damage caused by an irresponsible driver.
Our firm will gather the evidence we need to ensure that between the insurance company and going to court, you obtain maximum repayment for all you’ve been through in your Tampa rideshare wreck.
