The role that you played in the accident will largely determine how you go about seeking financial recovery. Below you will find a brief explanation of ways that you might recover from your accident based on the four most common categories of individuals involved in an Uber accident.
- The driver of an Uber vehicle at the time of the accident
If you were the driver of an Uber when the accident occurred, you will work mostly with your personal insurance provider. Depending on your Uber app status at the time of the accident, you might work with Uber’s insurance as well. You will likely deal with all of the insurance companies of the other individuals involved in the accident as well.
- The driver of another vehicle in the accident
If you were driving a private/commercial vehicle and were involved in an accident with an Uber driver, you will have a few options for your financial recovery. You will work with your insurance, the private insurance provider for the Uber driver, and potentially Uber’s corporate insurance company.
- The passenger of an Uber ride
If you were the passenger of an Uber ride when the accident occurred, you will deal primarily with Uber’s insurance. Uber has coverage for individuals that are utilizing the ride service to commute and will play an important role in your financial recovery. It is also unlikely that you would be held responsible for the accident, which is important to your compensation.
- The passenger of another vehicle
Similar to the passenger of an Uber ride, it is unlikely that you would be held accountable for the accident. This will help you as you work with your personal insurance, the Uber driver’s private insurance, and possibly Uber’s insurance.
Whatever your role in the accident, legal assistance is vital to maximizing your financial recovery. At Walch Law, we have seasoned Pacific Palisades Uber accident lawyers that can help you with every detail of your case.

We don’t want you to have to worry about a thing in your case.
