If you were involved in a collision with an Uber vehicle, it can be hard to know who is responsible for your medical bills, income loss, pain and suffering, and other losses. You do not have to figure it out on your own, though. Our team at Adam Smallow Injury Lawyers can help.
Our Baltimore Uber accident lawyer can investigate the accident and document the driver’s status on the app to determine which insurer to pursue. We will handle all the hard work of putting your case together and demanding compensation. In the meantime, you can focus on getting better.
What You Need to Know About Private Driver Versus Uber Insurance Coverage
An accident that involves an Uber vehicle does not always entitle you to recover compensation from their insurance company. The driver’s status at the time of the accident determines whether we demand coverage from:
- The driver’s personal auto insurer if they were not signed into the app when the collision occurred
- The insurer representing Uber if they were signed into the app, en route to a rider, or transporting one when the collision occurred
Our car accident lawyer serving Baltimore represents injured Uber drivers and passengers, pedestrians, occupants of the other involved vehicle, motorcyclists, and bicyclists.
The At-Fault Party’s Representative Is Aware of The Statute of Limitations
When our Uber accident lawyer accepts your Baltimore case, you can count on us to work hard to meet the state’s filing deadline. The at-fault party’s insurance company or legal representative will request an immediate dismissal of your case if you don’t file on time, or you might be barred from filing altogether.
In general, you have three years to meet the personal injury filing deadline, per Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-101. The same typically applies to suing for wrongful death, per Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904. At Adam Smallow Injury Lawyers, we can explain the applicable statutes, their impact on your case, and how and when the deadline might fluctuate.

Financial Recovery After an Uber Accident in Baltimore, Maryland
Whether we demand compensation from the Uber driver’s personal insurance company or Uber’s insurance company, you may be entitled to obtain the following damages:
- All accident-related medical bills
- Lost income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Property damage or destruction
- Diminished property value
- Impairment or disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
The loss of a loved one in an Uber accident could entitle specific members of your family to wrongful death damages. They can include the costs of your loved one’s funeral and burial and your loss of their financial and familial support.
Our Uber accident attorney will clarify which family members can benefit from a wrongful death action.
Evidence We Compile to Prove The Cause and Costs of the Uber Accident
The evidence we collect to build your case typically starts with your police report. Allow us to order it for you. In fact, we can order any records and reports needed for your case rather than taxing you with evidence collection. This documentation can include:
- Medical bills
- Injury photos
- Proof of income
- Medical records
- Witness statements
- Accident scene photos
- Accident reconstruction
We may also collect evidence that indicates the Uber driver’s status and the responsible insurer, such as the driver’s license history, their employment records, and their app history.
