Nashville Uber Accident Attorney

Uber and other rideshare apps have changed the way Nashville residents and visitors travel within the city and the surrounding area. There are more vehicles on the roads, including Uber cars, carrying passengers or cruising the streets awaiting a booking. A University of Chicago study shows an overall increase in traffic accidents by three percent since the rise of the Uber industry, largely due to increased traffic congestion caused by Uber and Lyft vehicles.

Most Uber rides are safe and uneventful, but an accident involving an Uber vehicle makes an insurance claim for damages complex and challenging. If you’ve been injured during an Uber ride, had a collision with an Uber car, or suffered a pedestrian accident with an Uber, you need experienced legal counsel with a track record of success in this type of claim. Call the Nashville Uber accident attorneys at Selvidge Law Firm today so we can begin strategizing your economic recovery while you work on your physical recovery.

Can I Sue Uber for Compensation After a Nashville Uber Car Accident?

Rideshare companies like Uber tend to distance themselves from liability by maintaining their status as an app store that only sells apps to connect independent drivers with passengers. Instead, Uber requires their contracted drivers to carry special rideshare insurance that works on the following specific coverage structure:

  • When the Uber driver uses their vehicle for private purposes, their standard auto insurance coverage is in place
  • Once the driver turns on their app and awaits a booking, their lower-tiered coverage may come into effect, or they may still be on their personal policy
  • Once the driver books a passenger, during the drive to pick up the passenger, and throughout the rideshare journey with the passenger, the top-tier coverage is in place with up to $1 million in coverage per accident

Because of the unique leveled structure of rideshare insurance coverage, insurance companies commonly dispute claims and argue that their policy wasn’t in place when the accident occurred. It takes an experienced Nashville car accident attorney to investigate all aspects of a Nashville Uber accident to document evidence and make a compelling claim against the correct insurance policy.
