What are Your Injury Rights if You Were in an Uber Car Accident?

If you were injured as a passenger of Uber, or any other rideshare company, you may make a personal injury claim against the company for any car accident injuries you suffered.  Uber's responsibility to compensate you for any injuries, lost wages and medical bills they caused is because their driver was under the scope of their agency (i.e. employment) when the car crash or injuries occurred.  Learn more, call a premier San Diego Uber rideshare accident lawyer today.

Do Uber Rideshare Drivers have Car Accident Insurance?

Uber and other rideshare companies insure their drivers for up to $1M dollars for any car accident personal injuries that they cause because of their wrongful or careless driving.  Uber also has excess or umbrella car accident insurance coverage for severe injuries and fatal, wrongful death caused by their drivers.

In addition, Uber and other rideshare company drivers are required to have their own car accident insurance but it is likely that this coverage would contractually secondary and or excluded when the driver is "on the job" for any ridesharing company.
