Identifying the Liable Party in Your Uber Accident
To recover compensation after your West Palm Beach Uber accident, you must establish who is liable. Doing so requires proving negligence. Any of the following examples of negligence can cause a serious accident to occur:
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Running a red light
- Failing to maintain vehicle
There are several parties that might be liable for your accident. A few include:
- The Uber driver
- Another driver involved in the accident
Holding the Responsible Party Liable
Once we have determined who is liable in your accident, we must hold it liable. If another driver is liable, you would turn to your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage and then, if you meet the criteria, you could file with that driver’s insurance company.
If an Uber driver is at fault for the accident, it gets a bit more complex. The insurance company that covers you and the amount of compensation you are eligible to recover depends on the driver’s “status” at the time of the collision.
Our team will help you navigate the process to recover compensation for your Uber accident.

Handle Communication with the Insurance Company

- Getting you to agree to a quick settlement
- Tricking you into admitting fault or agreeing that your injuries are not serious
Our team will talk with the insurer on your behalf to ensure you do not say anything that might jeopardize your claim.
Negotiate with the Insurance Company
