Uber Accident Attorneys in Wisconsin

Uber car accident attorneys in MilwaukeeAs rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft become more and more commonplace, it’s important to know what to expect in the event of an accident. While Uber does provide accident coverage in some cases, it is still a business and will do everything it can to pay out as little as possible. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, the Uber driver’s personal insurance may be responsible for all or part of the claim. A Milwaukee car accident lawyer can help you navigate Uber’s policies and fight for your rights. 

Whether you are:

  • An Uber driver or passenger
  • A driver or passenger of another car
  • A pedestrian or cyclist hit by an Uber vehicle

6 Wisconsin Car Accident Laws with a HUGE Impact on Your Claim

Will Uber's Insurance Pay for My Accident?

Uber insurance issues are a complex web of private, primary and secondary insurance claims. If you are struck by an Uber driver you might have to deal with the driver’s private insurer or Uber’s insurance agency. While the Uber driver has a passenger Uber is the primary insurer and covers up to $1,000,000 in liability. Uber’s insurance policy changes depending on what the driver is doing. Uber accident insurance coverage is different if:

  • The driver is on their way to a fare
  • The driver has dropped off a passenger
  • The driver is currently carrying a passenger
  • The driver is awaiting a fare

How Do I Fight Uber's Accident Policy?Uber accident lawyers for drivers & passengers

Uber drivers are not Uber employees, they are legally considered independent contractors. This allows Uber to deny liability in the event of an accident. As a massive multi-national organization, Uber will fight to avoid a payout. If you were involved in an Uber accident you need a tough law firm like Warshafsky to fight back and get you the compensation you deserve. Sometimes your compensation hinges on finding the right insurance coverage to ensure you receive the maximum payout. Warshafsky Law Offices employs a full-time private investigator who will find hidden sources of liability, even in Uber’s complex accident policy.

Companies like Uber value your claim based on the quality of the law firm. While sign-and-settle lawyers put Uber in the driver's seat, Warshafsky attorneys are driven by your best interest. We know the ins and outs of Wisconsin car accident laws and won't back down until Uber offers rightful compensation. Our no-fee lawyers won't accept payment until your case wins and you get paid.

Can I Sue My Uber Driver?

Yes, you can sue your Uber driver. Most personal insurance policies prohibit using vehicles for rideshare platforms like Uber since it's "driving-for-hire." Since the driver's personal insurance is a major factor in Uber's compensation, you need an expert to navigate the company's complex insurance policies. Uber has a lot more money to shell out than the local Millenials driving for cash. Our Milwaukee car accident attorneys will help you get the coverage you deserve. We'll help you sue for:

  • Lost wages
  • Pain & suffering
  • Disability
  • Medical expenses
  • Mental anguish

Uber Pay-Outs by the Numbers

$25,000 Property damage
$50,000 - $100,000        Injury compensation for drivers w/o passenger
$1,000,000 Liability coverage for passengers, driver & 3rd party
$1,000,000 If an uninsured motorist is at fault

Uber Has to Cover Passenger Claims, Right? WRONG.

Uber’s insurance policy will automatically cover up to $1,000,000 while the driver is carrying a passenger. However, Uber is notorious for denying accident insurance claims and deferring them to the driver’s personal insurance company. Uber can deny coverage by claiming the driver was acting recklessly or even distracted by Uber passengers. They'll try and make you absorb the fault for your injuries in some cases- for instance, if you weren't wearing a seatbelt. The Uber accident attorneys at Warshafsky will not stand for a corporation blaming the victim! We will fight tooth and nail to get you what you deserve, whether you were riding in an:

  • Uber

  • UberLUX
