It is impossible to accurately estimate the value of your commercial Uber accident settlement in Texas damages. This is because there are a range of contributing factors. Our vehicle accident lawyers at D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ can accurately calculate your damages. Here is what you need to know about your Uber accident case.
Uber’s Liability Insurance Coverage Could Cover Your Losses
Uber carries liability insurance to cover accidents where the Uber driver is at fault. The amount of liability insurance they cover is as follows:
Third-Party Liability Coverage
Third-party liability insurance covers damages to a third-party when the Uber driver is at fault, such as another driver, pedestrian, or property. The policy covers up to $1,000,000 per accident.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Bodily Injury Coverage
In the state of Texas, motorist bodily injury insurance covers you and other passengers if the at-fault driver does not carry any or enough insurance to cover the damages.
The insurance also covers hit-and-run accidents if you are unable to identify the third-party driver. The policy covers $1,000,000 per accident.
The Amount of Commercial Insurance Coverage Available Could Affect You
Your claim may not be able to exceed the coverage available from Uber’s commercial provider, regardless of the value of your case. However, you may have other options for insurance coverage, including your own insurance.
Other Factors That Might Change the Settlement Amount You Could Recover
Your accident might not look the same as someone else’s. Yours might have included a traumatic brain injury and the loss of a limb. Another individual’s accident could involve a few bruises and mild anxiety. Accident-related losses and settlement amounts are related.
Whether you were out of work or cannot return to work at all can also contribute to the settlement amount. The accident might have been due to a faulty part. The court might award punitive damages to punish the parts manufacturer.
Our Commercial Uber Accident Attorney Can Help You Obtain Damages
An Uber vehicle accident attorney from our team may be able to help you file a claim against Uber’s insurance company. With legal assistance, you may be able to negotiate a settlement that covers your damages.
An attorney can help you in the following ways:
Negotiating a Settlement Requires Knowing the Value of Your Case
An attorney can communicate directly with the insurance to work out a settlement on your behalf. They will do this after valuating your losses and coming up with a fair amount you could pursue.
Managing Your Case So You Can Relax and Recover
An Uber accident attorney can handle all the necessary documents, deadlines, and legal procedures associated with your case. If necessary, an attorney can also help you file a lawsuit and guide you through litigation.
Gather Evidence of Liability and Case Value to Support Your Claim
An attorney can compile evidence such as photos, video surveillance, expert testimony, eyewitnesses, and police reports. A lawyer can also retrieve medical records to establish your injuries and financial loss.
The evidence and documentation may give an attorney a better idea of your case.
Help You Understand Your Case so You Are Empowered to Make Decisions
To better understand what to expect in an Uber accident settlement in Texas, consult an attorney. Your lawyer can answer your questions and make recommendations for moving forward with your Uber accident case.
Representing Yourself Poses Serious Risks for Your Texas Uber Accident Case
Self-representation is an option for any accident victim. However, Uber accidents can prove confusing. Vehicle insurance can be confusing when you’re dealing with your own vehicle. Taking transportation network company (TNC) insurance plans into account can be even more overwhelming.
Your lawyer is familiar with how different regulations and laws could affect your case. You might not be aware of how Uber accident cases can be. You might realize too late that:
- You left money on the table
- You filled out paperwork incorrectly
- You missed a timeline
- You do not have the time to handle your case or hunt for evidence
- You do not know the next steps in your case
