Uber is a fun and inexpensive way to get rides across town while meeting new and interesting people. Tens of thousands across America have joined the Uber revolution as a means to supplement their income or make a full-time living by use of their own vehicle. When drivers of this rideshare company recklessly operate their vehicles and injured passengers and other drivers, the fun is over.
The Jardine Law Offices P.C., led by Joseph Jardine and Peter Goodall, our expert personal injury attorneys knowledgeable of ridesharing rules and regulations. Fair and honest representation in even the most complex accident cases is what the firm specializes in, recovering millions in settlement compensation during the course of their careers. If there’s an accident, and you want an experienced Uber accident attorney Salt Lake City residents have known for years, you want the Jardine team.
The only component of an Uber accident that differs from other accidents is the insurer we go after. Knowing which insurer gets held accountable requires our office to thoroughly investigate the claim to determine whether or not the Uber driver was hauling a passenger, or in route to pick them up.
San Francisco-based Uber provides its drivers with up to $1 million in accident liability coverage. As the largest taxi cab company in the world without any vehicles in their inventory, Uber activates this policy with the app turned on. This extra layer of indemnity supplements the Uber driver’s personal insurance policy, but consequently could negate their personal policy as certain insurance companies forbid their policyholders to use their cars ‘for hire’ unless they possess a commercial driver’s license.
Due to the complex nature of Uber related accidents, the Jardine Law Offices P.C. treat ridesharing accidents more comprehensively than regular car accidents due to the possible confusion of liability. So, whether you were a passenger of an Uber or the driver of the vehicle an Uber driver hit, you may be entitled to fair compensation based on the extent of your injuries regardless of which insurer took precedence during the incident.
You’ve been seriously injured by an Uber driver, and feel clueless as to what options may be afforded to you. After you’ve received medical care and are cleared to leave the scene by law enforcement, the attorney you hire to represent you throughout your claim could determine its success or failure. We’re the firm featuring an Uber accident attorney Salt Lake City victims have turned to when they want the greatest compensation for their injuries.
Time is of the essence in handling car accident claims involving ridesharing drivers. We’ll need time to reconstruct the accident, so we can demonstrate in court that the Uber driver was indeed the at-fault party. By building a strong case that withstands reasonable doubt, many insurers will be inclined to favorably settle your case prior to litigation.
