What if an Uber driver hit my car?
California’s negligence laws apply to the case of an Uber driver hitting your car. You deserve compensation for their fault in causing the crash. Damages you can claim include economic losses and non-economic harm like pain and suffering.
Even though Uber promises insurance to cover their drivers in a crash, you must still prove your claim. Uber wants to minimize your compensation, and their lawyers represent the company – not you.
Don’t sign anything until you have talked with a lawyer. Report the accident to the police immediately. Get the driver’s information, witness information and take photographs. Then, contact our San Bernardino injury lawyers to discuss your rights and how LA Century Law can assist you.
Why You Need an Uber Accident Lawyer
In some ways, Uber accident claims are like other vehicle accident claims:
- If you’re injured, you have the right to claim compensation from the responsible party.
- Many claims are settled through insurance policies.
- Damages may include economic and non-economic damages, like pain and suffering.
However, there are ways that an accident claim involving Uber is different than other vehicle accident claims:
- There may be multiple insurance policies that apply.
- In addition to driver liability for a traffic error, there may be liability for Uber allowing an unqualified driver to operate through their platform.
- An Uber driver may be especially determined to fight liability, not wanting a mark on their record.
- Despite promises of large insurance guarantees, Uber makes their profit when they accept fares while minimizing accident compensation.
- There are unique steps to reporting the accident to Uber, negotiating your compensation and taking legal action, if necessary.
As your San Bernardino Uber accident lawyer, we do everything that we can to take the burden off you while you focus on your recovery. We can handle the steps in the claim and the unique things that are required to maximize your compensation.
Uber Claims and Settlements
Uber promises up to $1 million in coverage when one of their drivers is responsible for an accident. However, most Uber drivers use their vehicles to give rides. Whether the $1 million accident guarantee is available depends on the driver’s status at the time of the accident.
- If the driver is using their vehicle for personal use, we’ll look to their insurance policy for compensation.
- If the driver is logged into the app, but they haven’t accepted a ride, Uber provides limited bodily injury and property damage coverage.
- When a driver has accepted a ride, and they’re on their way to the pickup spot, the $1 million guarantee applies.
- During a ride, the $1 million guarantee applies.
There may be multiple insurance policies that apply. Part of our representation may be determining what source is primary and what liability may be attached to each policy.

Uber Accident Case FAQs
What laws cover Uber accidents in San Bernardino?
California negligence laws cover Uber accidents in San Bernardino. A party is at fault for an accident if they fail to exercise reasonable care and caution. Speeding, improper lane change and following too closely are just a few ways someone may be at fault.
Does Uber hire drivers with speeding tickets?
Many accident victims are surprised to learn that Uber hires drivers with speeding tickets. Because of local laws, the exact rules vary by location. However, Uber may hire drivers with as many as three speeding tickets in three years. Uber has a legal obligation to reject unsafe drivers, so if a speeding driver causes an accident, it may be the basis for compensation.
Does a reckless driving conviction disqualify you from Uber?
If a person has a reckless driving conviction, they shouldn’t be driving for Uber. Generally, a reckless driving conviction disqualifies someone from driving for Uber for seven years. If the company allows a dangerous driver to operate, and they are responsible for an accident, Uber may be liable.
What do I need to prove to receive compensation for an Uber accident?
To receive compensation for an Uber accident, you must prove that someone else has a legal fault, usually because of negligence. Then, you must prove that their negligence caused the accident and your injuries. Finally, you must prove your damages. As your lawyer, we can gather proof for your case.
