New York Uber Accident Lawyers
A Personal Injury Firm Well-Prepared For Your Uber Accident Claim
Uber has only been around since 2009, but its name has become synonymous with ride-sharing. We use Uber rides on vacation, or we count on them as a sober option to bring us safely home. A lot of people even use ride-sharing as their primary means of transportation. With so many Uber vehicles on the road, accidents happen.
Edelman & Edelman, P.C., has provided personal injury counsel in New York for decades. Our team knows the complexities behind these cases. No one accident is precisely like another. Identifying the liable party in any personal injury case can often be a grueling process. Our lawyers can help you recover compensation thoroughly and efficiently.
Uber And NY Ride-Share Coverage
New York requires insurance coverage for rideshare companies. Uber maintains policy limits for the following situations:
- All vehicle occupants are covered for up to $50,000 in accident-related injury losses during the Uber service
- From the moment the driver accepts the request and through the entire ride, Uber has coverage of $1.25 million for total accident losses. This also includes coverage for cases when an uninsured or underinsured driver is at fault.
- As the driver waits for a rider with their Uber app active, their coverage for bodily injuries in an accident is up to $75,000.
Uber’s coverage may not be enough for your losses. Fighting a case against Uber can be daunting, but we know the law in and out and can defend you from the onset.
