Uber and other rideshare companies offer a whole lot of convenience, but Uber accident claims can be exceptionally complicated. While there is no way to identify the exact amount of compensation to which you are entitled, there are some basic categories of damage that can help you better understand what your settlement amount will likely be. If a negligent Uber driver leaves you injured in an accident, don’t delay consulting with an experienced Atlanta Uber accident attorney at Ahmad Injury Law.
Your Damage: Your Settlement Amount
Your Uber accident settlement amount will be based on the damages or losses you suffer. These damages are divided into all of the following categories:
- Your medical costs
- Your lost wages
- Your pain and suffering
The Insurance Company
Your settlement amount will ultimately come from the insurance company involved, which depending upon the situation, will be either Uber’s provider or the Uber driver’s personal provider. Because insurance companies are driven by profits, they do whatever they can to keep settlements low, which is why having an experienced Uber accident attorney in your corner is always well advised.

Should I contact an attorney?
If an Uber driver’s negligence leaves you injured, seeking the professional legal counsel of an experienced Uber accident attorney can make a significant difference in the success of your claim.
Which insurance company is responsible?
The following insurance basics apply to Uber accidents:
- If the driver was on the app and had a passenger in the car or waiting for pickup, Uber’s robust coverage applies.
- If the driver was on the app but had no passengers, Uber’s coverage picks up where the driver’s ends.
- If the driver wasn’t on the app, the claim proceeds to the driver’s provider.
Won’t the insurance company cover my losses?
The insurance company is motivated by profits and isn’t likely to compensate you justly if you do not pursue the matter vigorously.
