- Roberts Law Firm, APC
During recent years, transportation network companies like Uber have become very popular. These companies, also called rideshares, offer a mobile phone app through which a customer can request a ride from one of the company’s drivers. If you have been injured in an Uber accident, an Uber accident lawyer in Newport Beach, California can help you figure out what to do. The Roberts Law Firm of Newport Beach, California will use its experience to win you the compensation for your injuries that you deserve.
The insurance that covers an Uber accident can be complicated. What is covered and who is liable depends upon what stage of the ride process the driver and passenger are in. If the driver is not yet logged into the mobile app, he’s liable for any accident that occurs. If he’s logged into the app but has no passenger yet, he’s partially liable, and Uber is also partially liable. But if he’s logged into the app and has a passenger, then Uber is liable, not the driver, and Uber provides $1 million in coverage. The Roberts Law Firm of Newport Beach, California can help you figure out who is liable for what if you’ve been injured in an Uber car accident.
If you are in an Uber accident and have been injured, consulting with an attorney is essential. Initially, you should do exactly what you’d do in any auto accident. You must have a police report taken and get medical attention as soon as possible. If you’re the Uber driver, take a screenshot of your phone that shows what stage of the ride you’re in. Get all the information from all other drivers and witnesses. Then, call an Uber accident lawyer in Newport Beach, California.
