Can I Sue Uber If I’m In An Accident?

Yes. If you’ve suffered injuries in a ridesharing accident, you can sue Uber and the Uber driver.


In fact, under California law you can also sue any other at-fault parties, which may include other drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

At Mova Law, we make sure all at-fault parties are held accountable for the property damage arising from an Uber accident.

Can I Sue If An Uber Driver Assaults Me?

Yes, if attacked or sexually assaulted by an Uber driver, you may be entitled to sue for damages.

Physical or sexual assault may also be cause for criminal charges. If you are assaulted by an Uber driver, be sure to report the incident to the police immediately.

Regardless of what happens with the criminal case, as the victim of an Uber driver assault, you can sue the attacker in a separate civil case. There may be scenarios in which you can also sue Uber after an assault. In general, a civil suit for assault is brought against the assailant.

A lawsuit will help you recover compensation for damages, both physical and mental, arising from an Uber driver assault.

Does Uber Carry Insurance?

Yes, Uber carries commercial auto insurance in the US.


Because state laws vary, Uber carries different insurance policies in different states to meet local requirements.

Uber’s insurance policy in California

Does Uber’s Insurance Protect Rideshare Passengers?

This insurance coverage protects Uber’s drivers, their vehicles, and their passengers. (https://www.uber.com/us/en/drive/insurance/)

Uber drivers are independent contractors. So not surprisingly, the insurance coverage from Uber is limited and certainly doesn’t cover driver’s negligence. In fact, Uber suggests to their rideshare drivers that they may want additional liability coverage.


More importantly, that insurance isn’t in place to protect you, the rideshare passenger. It is in place to protect the company in the event of a vehicle accident.

(Lyft’s policy is similar but different. Mova Law Group has successfully fought cases against both companies. Our San Diego Lyft Accident Lawyers know how best to help Lyft accident victims.)

Don’t get stuck with medical bills or other expenses from time lost at work.

If you’ve been in a collision while riding as a passenger, you need an experienced Uber accident attorney to fight your legal claim. Companies like Uber are able to hide behind a lot of complicated insurance information. Mova Law Group will help you sort through the unnecessary information and recover from all property damages with one of our San Diego rideshare accident lawyers.

What Do I Bring To My Initial Consultation with My Uber Accident Lawyer?

The more information you can provide, the better. In general, our personal injury lawyers will ask for:

  • Photos and video of the auto accident
  • A written description of what happened, including the time of the accident, and any resulting bodily injuries requiring medical treatment.
  • Written eyewitness testimony
    A copy of the police report, if you have it

What Should I Do If Someone Calls Me About My Uber Accident?

Someone from Uber’s Claims Support Team will contact you after an accident to get a statement. This is part of Uber’s standard operating procedure. https://help.uber.com/driving-and-delivering/article/what-to-do-if-youre-in-a-crash?nodeId=ab1a5837-85ea-4680-9d63-df98e8036804

The person calling is likely a claims adjuster. Remember, that individual’s job is to protect the corporation. They are not qualified to give you legal advice.

Our law firm protects the victims of Uber accidents. We fight to maximize the payout for your personal injury claim, from Uber, the insurance companies, and other at-fault parties.

After an accident, Uber’s claims support team will move quickly, while time-sensitive evidence is available and eyewitness testimony is still fresh. So you must react quickly as well. It’s important to find legal representation before you begin discussing your accident injuries with Uber’s claims support team.

So, when someone calls to discuss your Uber accident, be polite. Go ahead and share basic facts, such as your name and address. But don’t discuss the details of the accident. Let Mova Law talk to the Uber claims support team and negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf.

Can I Post About My Uber Accident On Social Media?

Never post photos, videos, or comments about your Uber accident on social media. Any information you put online becomes public. This destroys confidentiality that may be important to your case. Further, by making the information public, it can be used against you by the opposing side, reducing your chances of winning a fair settlement.

Anything you post is potential evidence. So taking down or editing social media content may be treated as the destruction of evidence.

However, capturing photo and video evidence at the scene of an accident is good practice. The more documentation you can collect after an Uber accident, the better. Just avoid the temptation to post it online.

Uber Accidents In California

In general, hiring a car with any of the recognized rideshare companies is safe. Regardless of the driver, car accidents do happen, especially in California.

Car Accidents In California

California is the largest state (by population) in the US(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_population) and has the second largest road network in the country. (https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/policyinformation/statistics/2020/pdf/hm10.pdf)

The use of public transportation in Southern California continues to decline. (https://scag.ca.gov/sites/main/files/file-attachments/its_scag_transit_ridership.pdf). As Californians rely increasingly on private cars and ridesharing services such as Uber(https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11116-021-10245-w) the traffic only gets worse. California has the highest rate of Interstate congestion and daily travel miles in the country. (https://tripnet.org/reports/interstate-system-national-news-release-06-22-2021/)

Not surprisingly, California also has the highest number of fatal vehicle crashes each year.


Growth Of Uber Accidents In California

The use of Uber ridesharing is growing. The company saw more than 6 billion rides in 2021, a growth of 27% over the previous year (https://investor.uber.com/news-events/news/press-release-details/2022/Uber-Announces-Results-for-Fourth-Quarter-and-Full-Year-2021/).

Uber’s own US Safety Report shows that as the number of Uber users grows, so does the number of Uber accidents. (https://www.uber.com/us/en/about/reports/us-safety-report/)
