The Dangers of Riding in an Uber

Although Uber has long been the top ridesharing company in the United States, it has also raised significant safety concerns. Uber’s lax requirements mean that just about anyone over 21 can become a driver with the company. Drivers are not required to take driving skills tests or have any special qualifications to prove they can keep passengers safe.

The nature of an Uber driver’s job can lead to accidents. Ridesharing drivers are required to use a smartphone app to accept rides and figure out where to go, which can take their attention away from the road. Unfortunately, not all drivers behave responsibly when behind the wheel.

They may try to transport as many people as possible during a shift to increase earnings, which can give rise to reckless driving. Some common causes of West Ashley Uber accidents include:

• Distracted driving
• Drowsy driving
• Speeding
• Not following traffic rules

Many Uber accidents are preventable. If you have been hurt in a West Ashley Uber accident, the Steinberg Law Firm can help you hold the negligent Uber driver accountable for your injuries. You may be able to recover compensation through a personal injury claim against the at-fault party.

Understanding Uber’s Insurance Coverage

Uber accidents can be complicated compared to other types of crashes. Determining liability is not always straightforward as there may be multiple insurance policies involved. 

Under South Carolina law, Uber must purchase insurance on behalf of its drivers. Coverage depends on what phase in the rideshare process the crash takes place. When an Uber driver has the app on and is driving around awaiting a passenger request, the company’s policy provides up to:

• $50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident in bodily injury liability coverage
• $30,000 of property damage liability coverage per accident

The above coverage only applies to situations where an Uber driver injures a non-Uber customer in an accident, such as a pedestrian or a bicyclist. When an Uber driver accepts a ride request, the following coverage kicks in until the passenger gets dropped off at their destination:

• $1 million in bodily injury coverage
• $1 million in uninsured motorist protection
• $1 million in underinsured motorist protection

The company’s insurance policy does not apply if the Uber driver has their app off or is not accepting rides when an accident occurs. In such situations, the at-fault driver’s insurance policy or the accident victim’s uninsured/underinsured motorist protection would come into play. All South Carolina motorists must have an auto insurance policy with:

• $25,000 per person/$50,000 per accident in bodily injury liability coverage
• $25,000 of property damage liability coverage per accident

While this coverage can help pay for some of an Uber accident victim’s medical costs, it often falls short. The actual cost of a West Ashley Uber accident can easily exceed an Uber driver’s insurance policy limits.

Insurance companies are notorious for trying to settle accident claims for as little as possible. Before accepting any settlement offers, you should speak to an experienced Uber accident attorney who can look out for your best interests.

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we work closely with our clients to make sure they are fairly compensated for the full extent of their losses.
