Uber has strived to provide professional and safe services to its clients, but accidents still happen. If you feel that someone else’s recklessness or negligence caused your injuries, you can file an Uber accident claim with the help of our Henderson Uber accident lawyer.
Who Is Liable for Your Uber Accident?
For you to recover compensation for your Henderson Uber accident claim, you must find the liable party and prove that it was their recklessness or negligence that led to your injuries. In Henderson, you can receive your compensation from the following sources:
This is usually the first and primary liable party in Uber accident claims. However, you can only recover your compensation from Uber’s insurer if the vehicle’s driver was on duty at the time of the accident.
The Uber Driver’s Insurer
All Uber vehicle drivers must be insured. Requirements dictate that every driver should have their minimum liability coverage. You can file an Uber accident claim against the driver’s insurer, especially if the driver was not on duty at the time of the accident.
Be careful to inquire if the driver’s insurer offers coverage in “driving for profit.”
If they do not, you might have to explore other options. It is possible, though, that you will be able to receive sufficient compensation without the “driving for profit” coverage.
It is possible that parties such as other drivers, road administrators, mechanics, and parts suppliers might be responsible for your crash. Proving this may be tricky, so it is advised you hire a lawyer from our firm to assist you in your search for who is at fault.
The Uber Company
In some cases, you may be able to hold the Uber company responsible for an accident that happened with one of its vehicles. You will have to prove direct liability —the company knowingly hired an unqualified driver, the vehicle you were traveling in was not up to the expected standards, or the driver was uninsured.
The Uber Driver
If the driver is uninsured and off duty when your Uber accident occurred, you might have to file an Uber accident lawsuit against the driver. Unfortunately, taking this option is only reasonable if the Uber driver can pay. If they can’t, all your effort in recovering your compensation might be in vain.
Our Henderson Uber accident lawyer can help you establish fault and collect documentation as proof of what you are entitled to.
Your Insurance Company Can Help
Assuming you were injured in an Uber accident where the driver is uninsured and was off duty when the accident occurred, you can turn to your insurance provider for compensation. Fortunately, most insurance companies in Louisiana offer uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage that you can take advantage of.
