Recoverable Damages Your Uber Accident Could Have Caused

You could recover damages from an Uber accident in many ways. Recoverable damages are the money a court requires someone to pay for injuring another person or causing property damage. At Dolman Law Group, we will pursue the compensation you need. Recoverable damages you could potentially receive include (but are not limited to): 

Medical Bills

You can be compensated for any medical bills related to the accident. This includes emergency care, ongoing care, physical and occupational therapy, and any other medical visits.

Lost Income

If you have to be out of work for a period due to injuries from the accident, you could be compensated for that time lost. If you sustain injuries that prevent you from working, you could receive compensation for future losses.

Pain and Suffering

This is non-economic and can be recovered after an Uber accident. It can include anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Ongoing physical pain from injuries you obtained during the accident could also make you eligible for compensation.

Wrongful Death

If a family member did not survive the accident, you could be eligible to receive compensation to cover the costs of any expenses related to the death, such as a funeral, burial, or cremation.

What You Should Do After an Uber Accident

After an Uber accident, it is normal to feel overwhelmed and scared. Your priority is safety, so do not exit your vehicle if you are on a busy road with oncoming traffic. Once you confirm your surroundings are safe, do the following:
  • Make sure all parties involved are safe. 
  • Contact the police and file a report.
  • Seek medical treatment for any injuries from the accident. Even if your injuries appear minor, get checked out.
  • Take pictures of any details that could be significant to a case.
  • Collect information from all parties involved
  • Speak with a New Port Richey lawyer to recover damages from the Uber accident.

Insurance Policy Rules for Uber Drivers

According to Florida Statutes § 627.748, rideshare drivers in Florida must be insured when logged into the app. The rideshare company or the Uber driver may meet the insurance requirements themselves.  Insurance coverage can be different based on whether a passenger is in the car or not when a personal injury occurs. There are minimum amounts specified in the bill for each scenario. 

Accidents That Occur When the App Is on But a Passenger Is Not in the Car

The minimum amount of insurance coverage in this scenario includes:
  • At least $50,000 for death and bodily injury per person of primary automobile liability coverage
  • At least $100,000 for death and bodily injury per incident of primary automobile liability coverage
  • At least $25,000 per incident of property damage liability coverage

Uber Accidents That Occur When a Passenger is in the Vehicle

  • At least $1,000,000 for death, bodily injury, and property damage of primary automobile liability coverage
  • Personal injury protection, which helps to pay for covered medical expenses caused by an auto accident
  • Uninsured motorist insurance, which pays for the accident-related medical care when the at-fault driver did not have enough insurance coverage to cover all of the injuries

You Have a Limited Time to Act After a New Port Richey Uber Accident

When an Uber accident injures you, you must act fast to file a claim so you don't miss the deadline. Florida Statutes § 95.11 states you generally have four years to file a claim for the potential to recover compensation. Once the deadline passes, you will no longer be able to pursue compensation.
