Personal injury lawyers are starting to hear question such as “Can I sue Uber for injuries or wrongful death?” The answer is maybe. If the facts of your case support a personal injury or wrongful death claim against Uber, you can sue the company for compensation and thereby hold it accountable.

A personal injury lawyer can help you answer these pertinent questions.

Was the at-fault driver connected to the Uber network at the time and either waiting for a rider or transporting a rider?

Were you a passenger in a vehicle (generally a van, SUV or car) driven by someone transporting you for the company?

Were you in another vehicle that was hit by someone driving for Uber?

Were you a pedestrian?

Was more than one driver at fault?

Is it unclear who was at fault?

What are the insurance policy limits for the at-fault driver(s) and the company?

If you were assaulted in a car, SUV or other vehicle in service for the company, you may have the right to sue the company for the assault. A personal injury lawyer has filed a lawsuit on behalf of one woman with such a claim.

LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY
Uber has insurance to cover crashes that happen when a driver is carrying a passenger for the company. It also has very limited insurance to cover crashes that happen when a driver is not providing transportation service for hire but is logged onto the company network and available to accept a ride.

Uber may deny liability (legal responsibility) for your injuries or the wrongful death of your loved one. In these cases, it is extremely important to hire a really good personal injury lawyer to do an independent investigation. If you have been injured by Uber, you can request a free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer at Clekis Law Firm.
