Can I Sue Uber if I’m in an Accident?

When you’re on the road, you may be worried about making the wrong move and causing a car accident. Unfortunately, rideshare drivers make mistakes, too, and those mistakes can cost you dearly. You may be seriously injured, your personal property may be damaged, and you may be suffering mental trauma from the rideshare accident. 

Can you sue Uber if you’re in an accident? The answer isn’t always simple, but the lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can help you determine what options are available for your Bronx rideshare accident claim. Reach out for help if you’ve been hurt by an Uber driver and need help. 

Rideshare Companies May Not Take Responsibility 

In cases where someone is driving for work, they’re usually the responsibility of their employers. For many rideshare drivers, however, that’s not the case. While some states are changing the laws to call rideshare drivers employees, many states consider rideshare drivers independent contractors. 

Because of this, you may be unable to sue Uber for your Bronx rideshare accident. Here’s the good news—drivers are required to carry commercial insurance that may cover your losses. This insurance coverage should cover up to $1 million for your injuries if you were a passenger at the time of the accident. 

Compensation for Bronx Uber Accidents

When you’re hurt in a Bronx Uber accident, you may be able to seek a settlement through the insurance company and sue if they fail to fairly compensate you. But what compensation are you actually due? If you’re not sure, it’s easy to settle for less than your claim is worth. 

You may be eligible for both economic and non-economic damages. These damages cover not just the financial losses you’ve suffered but the emotional and psychological damage of the accident. 

For example, you may know how much your hospital bills for a broken arm will cost, but how do you calculate the mental toll of your severe pain? If you’re not sure how to calculate these losses, you may need help from your Bronx car accident lawyer before you go to court.
