Navigating the complex Uber accident laws in Philadelphia can be challenging, but our expert attorneys will help you understand your rights and guide you through the legal process. Some key aspects of Uber accident law in Philadelphia include:

  1. Insurance Coverage: Uber carries a $1 million liability insurance policy to cover accidents involving their drivers. However, the coverage depends on the driver's status at the time of the accident:

    a. Offline or not using the Uber app: The driver's personal auto insurance applies. b. Online and available for requests (but not carrying a passenger): Uber's insurance provides limited liability coverage. c. En route to pick up a passenger or carrying a passenger: Uber's $1 million liability insurance policy applies.

  2. Statute of Limitations: In Pennsylvania, victims have two years from the date of the injury to file a personal injury claim. This time frame may be extended under specific circumstances, such as cases involving minors or the discovery rule.

  3. Comparative Negligence: Pennsylvania follows a modified comparative negligence system, meaning you can still recover compensation even if you are partially at fault for the accident. However, your recovery will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you, and you cannot recover damages if you are found to be more than 50% at fault.


Frequently Asked Questions About Uber Accidents

We understand that you may have questions about Uber accidents and your rights. Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers to help you better understand the process:

Q: Can I sue Uber directly for my injuries? A: In most cases, Uber drivers are considered independent contractors rather than employees. This means that Uber may not be held directly liable for their drivers' actions. However, there are some situations where Uber may be held responsible, such as cases involving negligent hiring or inadequate background checks.

Q: What if the other driver involved in the accident doesn't have insurance or has insufficient coverage? A: If you're involved in an Uber accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you may still be able to recover compensation through Uber's uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage or your own insurance policy.

Q: What damages can I recover in an Uber accident case? A: Damages in Uber accident cases may include:

  1. Economic damages: Medical expenses (past and future), lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.

  2. Non-economic damages: Pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of consortium.
