What To Do After An Uber Accident In Atlanta

Following an Uber accident in Atlanta, it is crucial that you take the proper steps to protect your health, well-being, and legal rights. Even a relatively modest misstep early in the claims process could undermine your ability to recover full compensation. Whether you were involved in a crash as a ridesharing passenger, an occupant of another vehicle, or as a pedestrian, you need to put yourself in the best position to hold negligent defendants liable. Here are four things you should do after an Uber accident: 

  1. Seek immediate medical attention for any injuries;
  2. Take photographs of the scene and make sure the collision is reported;
  3. Notify Uber that an accident has occurred; and
  4. Consult with an experienced Georgia Uber accident lawyer. 

An Overview Of Ridesharing Insurance Laws In Georgia

Initially, major ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft were subject to limited regulations in Georgia. Fortunately, the laws have been strengthened to protect people from the risks posed by ridesharing vehicles. In 2015, state lawmakers passed a bill to ensure that Ubers, Lyfts, and other ridesharing vehicles would have sufficient insurance coverage. The law is important because most Uber drivers use their personal vehicle for a commercial purpose—meaning there can be questions about what insurance policy will apply to any specific accident. 

In Georgia, all Uber passengers must be covered by a minimum of $1 million as part of a commercial liability insurance policy. As soon as the driver accepts a ride request, Uber’s commercial insurance policy will take effect. Alternatively, when an Uber vehicle is ‘off-the-clock’—meaning it is being used for personal purposes—a driver’s personal automobile liability policy will cover the crash. Regardless of the nature of your ridesharing collision, our Atlanta Uber accident lawyers are ready to help you navigate the claims process. 

How To Recover Compensation For An Uber Accident In Atlanta

Under Georgia law, ridesharing accident victims have a right to pursue compensation for both economic and noneconomic losses. You should be made ‘whole’ after an accident—meaning your compensation should be equivalent to your damages. Do not settle your claim for less than you rightfully deserve. Sadly, Uber and its insurance carriers fight hard to avoid paying out full compensation. At MG Law, our Atlanta personal injury lawyers will level the playing field. We will help you get justice and maximum compensation. You may be entitled to money damages for: 

  • Emergency room care; 
  • Medical bills and related costs;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Psychological counseling; 
  • Lost wages;
  • Diminished earning potential; 
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Emotional distress;
  • Physical scarring;
  • Disability; and
  • Wrongful death

We know how to hold Uber, its drivers, and large insurance companies accountable. When you call our law office, you will consult with a Georgia ridesharing  accident lawyer who will:

  • Handle correspondence with Uber and its insurers; and
  • Build a personalized strategy focused on maximizing your compensation.
