When you hear the word “Uber,” you probably know that it refers to one of the most popular rideshare services in the country. Uber and other rideshare services offer a convenient way for people to get from place to place when they do not have access to a vehicle (or when they know they should not be driving). However, car accidents involving Uber vehicles do happen, and you need to know how to secure compensation. At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our Boston Uber accident attorneys are ready to help you through this.

Uber Accidents Happen in Boston

Uber, along with other ridesharing services, make up an abundance of traffic in and around the Boston area. Consider that there were 350 total traffic crash fatalities and tens of thousands of traffic crash injuries during the latest reporting year in Massachusetts. While we do not have solid data on how many of these accidents involve Uber vehicles, we know they occur.

As with any other vehicle accident, a crash involving an Uber can result in serious injuries for passengers. This includes passengers inside of the Uber vehicle as well as those who may be in another vehicle struck by the Uber. It is not uncommon for experienced Boston car accident lawyers to help Uber crash victims who have sustained the following:

These injuries can lead to major medical expenses for Uber accident victims, and they need to know how to recover the compensation they deserve.

How Does Insurance Work In An Uber Accident?

There are varying levels of insurance when it comes to an Uber accident, as a Boston attorney could explain.

  • If an Uber driver is not signed into the app to work, any damages in injuries they cause will be covered by their personal insurance carrier.
  • If an Uber driver is signed into the app to work but does not have a fare, then their personal insurance carrier is going to be responsible for covering injuries and damages. Uber’s insurance policy will kick in at this level once the Uber driver’s personal coverage is exhausted.
  • If an Uber driver is signed into the app, is on the way to pick up a passenger, or already has a passenger in the vehicle, then Uber’s $1 million insurance policy will cover injuries and damages in the incident.
