Macon Uber Accident Attorney
Ride-sharing services like Uber have revolutionized the way we think about transportation. With just a few taps on your smartphone, you can easily and quickly hail a ride from a local driver. However, as with any mode of transportation, accidents can happen, and the consequences can be devastating.
At Buzzell, Welsh & Hill, we understand the complexities of ride-sharing accident cases, and we are here to help. Our experienced Macon Uber accident attorney can help you determine whether the ride-sharing company is legally responsible for your injuries, and we will work tirelessly to hold all responsible parties accountable and seek the compensation you deserve.
Will Uber’s Insurance Cover Your Accident?
If you have been involved in an accident while using a ride-sharing service like Uber, you may be wondering who is legally responsible for your injuries.
It’s important to note that the insurance situation with ride-sharing services can be complicated. When an Uber or Lyft driver is actually transporting a passenger, the rideshare company provides up to $1 million in liability coverage. However, if you are another motorist or a pedestrian hit by an Uber driver who is waiting to accept a ride, the minimum insurance required is just $50,000 per person, $100,000 per accident, and $30,000 for property damage. Our team will work to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve, whether it’s from the ride-sharing company or through a personal injury claim against a third-party negligent driver.
It’s important to note that Uber accident claims can be complex, and the ride-sharing company may try to dispute your claim or offer a low settlement amount.
That’s why we fight for our clients to receive compensation for out-of-pocket losses, including medical bills and lost income, as well as subjective losses like pain and suffering or emotional distress. If gross negligence or willful or wanton conduct leads to death, the victim’s family may also seek punitive damages against the responsible party.
Whether you were injured due to the reckless and negligent conduct of an Uber driver or another driver on the road, we have the knowledge and experience to help you navigate the legal system and recover damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.
