Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Manhattan Uber Car Accident Lawyer

Uber is a growing force to be reckoned with in Manhattan. There were nearly 200,000 rides every day in May 2016 in the greater New York area through about 15,000 drivers. That is a lot of added congestion to the streets with semi-professional rides being purchased.

The concept of ride sharing brings a new dimension to accidents and insurance coverage. When an accident happens, whose insurance is going to cover it? Is it the liability coverage of the company or is the personal insurance of the driver? What about if the driver is not transporting a fare at the time of the accident?

These grey areas have been shown to be a great legal dilemma for the court systems.

Accidents Happen

It is a matter of fact: accidents are going to happen. In fact, in 2014 there were an estimated 5,500 auto accidents every month in the greater New York area. For Uber drivers, it is a matter of when, not if there will be an accident. When that accident happens, it could take one of many shapes.

It could be an accident involving another vehicle with the Uber driver at fault, or perhaps the other driver is at fault. It could be the Uber driver strikes a pedestrian or bicyclist. Regardless of what type of accident occurs, if you are involved and you were hurt, you need to know what your options are.

Gaps In Insurance Coverage

When a driver is active with Uber, there is a low level of liability insurance that becomes active. When the driver is transporting someone, there is a higher value of liability insurance that is active. However, there have been cases, like one young girl who was run over by an Uber driver on New Years’ Eve in 2013 in San Francisco, where Uber’s insurance company claimed that because the driver did not have an active fare in the car, the liability insurance would not cover the injury.

What this points out is a gap in coverage that exists for Uber drivers and any injuries they may cause. Additional gaps exist when their personal insurance does not cover anything because the insurance policies do not cover commercial driving. Being the driver is being paid to drive the insurance companies consider that commercial driving, so it invalidates the insurance coverage.

What Happens If You Are Injured?

What all of this means is that for people who are injured by an Uber driver, whether you are a passenger, in another vehicle or a pedestrian, you may have a fight on your hands to have your injuries and damages covered. To protect yourself, you want to have an Uber car accident lawyer on your side who knows how to navigate the system and get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
