Uber Accident Attorneys in Wisconsin
As 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.
Whether you are:
- An Uber driver or passenger
- A driver or passenger of another car
- A pedestrian or cyclist hit by an Uber vehicle
If You Were INJURED It IS About The Money.®
Understanding Uber Insurance Claims
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 apassenger
- The driver is awating a fare
If you were in an Uber accident you will need to fight if you want adequate compensation.
Fighting Uber's Accident Policy
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.
Uber Accident Passenger Coverage
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.
