    Is a Rideshare company Liable for Accident Damages?

    When it comes to Uber accidents, determining liability can be complex. The liability often depends on the specific circumstances of the accident and the parties involved. In general, Uber drivers are considered independent contractors rather than employees of the company. Because of this, they are responsible for their own actions and liable for any accidents they cause while driving for Uber. If the Uber driver is at fault for the accident, you may be able to pursue a claim against their insurance coverage.


    When Are Ridesharing service Providers Liable for Auto accidents?

    In certain scenarios, the rideshare company itself may be held responsible for an Uber accident. While Uber considers its drivers independent contractors, there are situations where the company's liability comes into play. For example, if the accident occurred while the driver was actively engaged in a ride request or transporting a passenger, Uber's commercial insurance coverage may come into effect. This insurance coverage is designed to provide compensation for injured parties, supplementing the driver's personal insurance policy.

    An experienced rideshare accident lawyer can assess the circumstances of your case and determine if the rideshare company may share in the liability.

    What Types of Damages Am I Entitled to?

    If you have been injured in an Uber accident, you may be entitled to various types of damages.

    Economic and non-economic damages can include

    Medical bills

    Compensation for past, present, and future medical bills related to your injuries, including hospital stays, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and therapy.

    Lost wages

    Reimbursement for any income lost due to the accident, including wages from missed work and potential future earnings if your injuries result in long-term disability or reduced earning capacity.

    Pain and suffering

    Compensation for the physical and emotional pain, suffering, and trauma endured as a result of the accident and your injuries.

    Property damage

    Reimbursement for the repair or replacement of your damaged vehicle, personal belongings, or other property.

    Wrongful death

    In the tragic event of a fatal Uber accident, surviving family members may be eligible to pursue a wrongful death claim, seeking compensation for loss of financial support, funeral expenses, and the emotional impact of losing a loved one.


    How Can an Uber accident attorney Help?

    At MVP Accident Attorneys, our legal team knows how to investigate this type of complex accident and identify all liable parties. An attorney can investigate the accident and work with medical professionals, life care planners, economists, private investigators and other experts, to identify all liable parties and explore every possible avenue of compensation. We can obtain important information, such as phone records, rideshare app history, driving records, employment records, and other documentation that can help us pinpoint what caused the accident and who should be held liable.

    After we have gathered evidence, we will contact the negligent driver’s insurance company, and the third-party insurance company, to negotiate for a fair settlement. While most cases are settled out of court, if the insurance companies refuse to make reasonable settlement offers, we will be prepared to present your case before a judge and jury.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
