Columbia Personal Injury Lawyer > Florence Uber Accident Lawyer

Florence Uber Accident Lawyer

Uber has become a very popular service in Florence, and throughout South Carolina, in recent years. While the ridesharing service is a very convenient way to get around the city and its surrounding areas, Uber drivers can become involved in an accident just like any other. Obtaining the full compensation you need after an Uber accident can be even more complicated than in other accident claims. Our Florence Uber accident lawyer can help you make sense of the aftermath so you obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

Uber’s Insurance Policy

Uber requires anyone who drives for them to purchase their own auto insurance. When an Uber driver causes an accident, though, the company also carries its own liability insurance. The insurance that will apply depends on the activities of the Uber driver during the crash. These are as follows:

  • Uber driver not logged into the app: If an Uber driver is not logged into the app at the time of the accident, their own personal auto insurance will cover any damages, up to the limits of the policy. The minimum insurance amounts required by state law are $25,000 per person for bodily injury, and $50,000 for all people involved in one crash.
  • Uber driver logged in and waiting for a fare: When an Uber driver is logged into the app, is not carrying passengers, and waiting for a fare, Uber may provide some coverage for a crash. In these cases, Uber’s insurance will provide up to $50,000 for any damages the driver’s personal insurance does not cover.
  • Transporting passengers: When an Uber driver has a passenger in the vehicle and causes an accident, Uber will provide up to $1 million in liability insurance.

Uber does not want to pay damages to accident victims any more than other liable parties. The company often argues that their driver was not logged into the app at the time to avoid liability, even when this is not true. It is important to work with an attorney who can go up against the company on your behalf and refute these claims so you obtain the full settlement you deserve.

Common Injuries After an Uber Accident

Like other auto collisions, an Uber accident can result in some of the most severe injuries. The most common of these include:

  • Broken bones
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Damage to the tendons, ligaments, and muscles
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Amputation

Regardless of the type of injuries you suffered during an Uber accident, you deserve compensation for them. Seeking legal help before you file your claim can help you obtain the full damages you deserve.
