Accident Lawyers Firm are the Newport Beach ridesharing accident attorneys that injured parties know and trust, with the knowledge and experience to answer your questions and successfully navigate your case from initial consultation through settlement or trial.
As a passenger in an Uber (or “host”) vehicle, you are covered by the policy of insurance maintained by Uber in the maximum amount one million dollars. This policy of insurance applies if the Uber vehicle is at fault for the accident. However, if it is not at fault for the accident, you will need to seek damages from the offending vehicle. This illustrates the reason that Accident Lawyers Firm, the finest ridesharing accident lawyers Newport Beach has to offer, should be called the day of your accident.
The policy of insurance that insured the third party who caused the accident will bear responsibility for your damages if the Uber vehicle (or the “host” vehicle) is not at fault. However, what happens if the offending vehicle does not have enough insurance to cover your damages? This example only goes to show that calling the finest ridesharing accident attorneys Newport Beach knows and trusts should be your top priority.
If the offending third party vehicle does not maintain enough insurance to pay for your damages, you will have to file an Uninsured/Underinsured (UM/UIM) claim against the Uber vehicle. In this case, you will be entitled to collect damages from the offending third party’s policy of insurance and the balance will come from the “host” Uber vehicle’s policy of insurance.
