Why Call an Uber Accident Lawyer?
We know that the aftermath of any kind of traffic accident is tough on you and your loved ones. You might be in the hospital or recovering from your injuries at home. You may not be able to work and without a paycheck, you are wondering how you will pay for these unexpected medical bills.
That is why you should talk to a member of our team about your legal rights and options.
An Uber accident lawyer with Schultz & Myers, LLC can help you with:
- Identifying all liable parties.
- Filing an insurance claim against the at-fault party.
- Taking your case to court if we cannot reach a fair settlement through negotiation.
It is your right to have a lawyer represent you to seek compensation.
We Understand the Complexities of an Uber Accident Case
Our state laws have different guidelines for assigning liability in an Uber accident. Uber and other ride-share services are not like traditional taxi or town car services. This can make assigning fault and recovering damages a time-consuming and complex process.
You should not have to wrestle with legal statutes or talk to an insurance adjuster who may try to pressure you into a lowball settlement. A lawyer with Schultz & Myers, LLC will take care of these details for you. You can rest and recuperate from your injuries while we protect your rights and seek compensation on your behalf.
When You Are Protected by Uber’s $1 Million Insurance
Uber must carry a $1 million bodily injury and liability policy. Uber drivers are required to provide insurance for their passengers and other motorists, but this depends on the status and timeline of the accident.
Recoverable Damages if You Are Not the Passenger
We can help you file a claim against Uber if you are a motorist, pedestrian or other third party who is injured while the driver is actively using the Uber app but has not yet picked up a passenger. Our firm also seeks compensation for Uber drivers who are injured while on the app or picking up passengers.
We will help you get compensated for medical expenses, lost pay, property damage, and other related costs.
Recoverable Damages if You Are the Passenger
The $1 million Uber liability begins from the moment that the driver accepts your passenger request on the app until the ride is over, or when the driver finalizes the transaction on the app (whichever lasts longer).
An Uber accident lawyer can also help you recover damages if you were injured as a pedestrian, motorists, or other third party during this time.
Recoverable Damages When the Driver Is Neither on the App nor Has Passengers
Uber vehicles are not considered commercial vehicles. Uber drivers are not employees or the same as a licensed taxi driver. If you were injured by an Uber driver who was neither on the app nor available to pick up passengers, you would likely only be covered by the driver’s personal auto insurance.

When You Should Call an Uber Accident Lawyer
Some insurance companies look for any excuse to deny or undervalue your claim. They could use any delay in filing a claim as a reason to question the validity of your injuries and damages.
Under Sect. 516.120 of the Missouri Statutes, you have five years to file a personal injury lawsuit. You should know that many lawsuits begin as insurance claims. Our lawyers at Schultz & Myers, LLC will pursue the maximum compensation you may be awarded. However, if the other side will not negotiate in good faith, we can take your case to trial.
