Immokalee Uber Accident Lawyer
Uber has given consumers more options for getting around town. Instead of hailing a taxi, many people now use their phones to request a ride using the Uber app. Residents hoping to pick up some extra money also benefit, since they can use their own cars to ferry people around Immokalee after connecting with the Uber app. Unfortunately, Uber has increased traffic around town and driven up the number of accidents on our roads. If you were hurt in a collision involving an Uber, contact Cardinal Law, P.A. today. An Immokalee Uber accident lawyer at our firm will be in touch to discuss your accident. You might qualify to make a claim against Uber or another driver on the road.
Is Uber Liable for Your Accident?
There is a misconception that someone injured in an Uber collision can always sue Uber. That’s not the case. Instead, we need to know who is at fault for the accident. If you were riding in an Uber, then your driver could be to blame. Maybe they were speeding, distracted, or fatigued. Or a different driver could have slammed into your Uber.
At Cardinal Law, P.A., we investigate the facts to identify liability. When an Uber driver is to blame, you make a claim on their insurance policy:
- Uber app is not on. In this case, the driver is no different than any other motorist on the road. You will make a claim, if at all, on their personal insurance policy.
- Uber app is on, but the driver has not yet accepted a ride. Anyone struck by an Uber can make a claim on Uber’s insurance policy. A maximum of $50,000 in bodily injury liability coverage is available per injured victim, up to a maximum of $100,000 for one accident. Another $25,000 is available for property damage.
- Uber driver has accepted a ride and/or has a passenger in the car. The maximum insurance policy is available, up to $1 million in coverage.
As someone injured in a collision, you benefit from hiring your own lawyer. Don’t expect Uber to make a generous settlement or hire a lawyer for you. These large, powerful companies are focused on aggressively cutting costs, and they rarely make generous settlements to accident victims.
Instead, contact us so we can begin compiling evidence to use in your case. Often, Uber tries to blame a different motorist on the road for the accident, which helps them avoid a settlement. But in that case, much less compensation is available to accident victims. Hire your own legal team to represent your interests.
