How Your Cincinnati, OH Uber Accident Lawyer Will Establish Liability
To help establish either party’s liability for your damages, your lawyer will need evidence that they were negligent in some way. For instance, the driver may have been negligent by driving while distracted by an incoming ride assignment. The evidence your lawyer will seek out could be:

- Witness testimony
- Accident reconstruction information
Our team will use the evidence we gather to establish the following elements:
- Duty of care (The party’s responsibility to act carefully)

Who Is Liable in an Uber Accident Case?
Insurance with rideshare companies can be complicated. Who is liable in your Cincinnati, Ohio Uber accident case depends on the driver’s status at the time of the accident.
If the driver was not logged on the app when they caused the accident, you would file a claim with their insurer.
If the driver was logged into the app but had not matched with a passenger, you would file a claim with their insurer. Uber offers coverage if the driver’s insurance policy won’t cover the accident.
If the driver is traveling to a passenger or has a passenger in their car, Uber’s liability coverage kicks in. Our team will help you determine which insurance policy pays you.
