Uber Car Accident Lawyers

Car Accident Lawyers

The Uber platform was designed with safety in mind. Still, serious and sometimes fatal accidents have raised alarms about driver vetting, safety protocols, and the rights of passengers and pedestrians who are injured.

If you suffer an injury in an Uber accident, who is liable for your medical bills and financial hardships? Does Uber carry enough insurance to cover your accident-related losses? These questions are best answered by an Uber car accident lawyer who understands ridesharing laws and issues of liability.


0 / 0

Every month, more than 100 million people use Uber ridesharing service in the United States


The average equates to 14 million rides per day for the nearly 3.5 million Uber drivers and 93 million customers



Uber is a multi-billion-dollar company that touts its commitment to passenger safety. However, its insurer is quick to dispute or outright deny accident claims. At Rutter Mills, we don’t back down until we achieve a settlement that truly represents our client’s past, current, and future losses. Whether we are dealing with Uber directly, the driver’s auto insurance, or a third-party, we know how to maximize your recovery

How the Uber car accident lawyers at Rutter Mills can assist you

The vast majority of Uber accident claims brought by injured passengers are resolved with settlement negotiations. When these endeavors fail, filing a lawsuit is the next step. We have the expertise and track record of case results to pursue your car accident claim successfully. We also provide extensive legal representation for those involved in a Lyft car accident too.

How We Can Help You

  • Medical expenses – including ongoing care and therapies until full recovery
  • Lost income and wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and mental trauma from the accident
  • Damages for permanent disability, disfigurement, or scarring
  • Decreased quality of life

At Rutter Mills, our knowledgeable car accident lawyers leverage the resources and skills to help individuals who are:

  • Hurt in ridesharing accidents throughout the Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Hampton Roads Metropolitan Area
  • We also advocate for Uber accident victims in Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and the surrounding communities
  • Our legal team has secured millions of dollars on behalf of our clients
  • We are fully prepared to fight for the justice and fair monetary compensation you are owed

Uber’s $1 million liability policy may seem like more than enough coverage but bear in mind that insurers can and will deny claims based on any number of technicalities. At Rutter Mills, our lawyers work hard to ensure you are not taken advantage of in the wake of an accident, and that you recover the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled.

Filing an Uber accident claim as a passenger or other injured party is best handled by a car accident attorney at Rutter Mills, who is well-versed in the specifics of your case and insurance regulations.

Discuss your eligibility for filing an Uber accident claim with Rutter Mills during a free, no-obligation consultation. We are proud to offer results-driven advocacy on a contingency arrangement. This means there are no legal fees unless we procure a settlement or court award on your behalf.

Uber Rideshare Insurance – Three Tiers

Rideshare drivers for Uber are required to have personal auto insurance that meets Virginia’s minimum requirements. In addition to the driver’s personal auto insurance, under certain situations, Uber may have an additional higher limit liability policy that may apply. This policy potentially covers any crash or incident that happens between accepting a trip and reaching your final destination.

The insurance coverage would depend on the circumstances of the accident:

  • The Uber rideshare app is off. In this situation, the driver’s auto insurance would apply in the event of an accident
  • The Uber app is on, and the driver is waiting for a trip request. If the driver is in an accident with a third party, Uber provides additional coverage over and above the driver’s personal policy.
  • The Uber app is on, and the ride is in progress. Uber may have a $1 million liability policy that applies for total bodily injury for anyone involved in the accident.

The nuances are endless. Contact our Uber car accident lawyers today to ensure nothing is missed. We can even assist with Lyft car accidents, fatal car accidents, personal injury and more. There are bad drivers everywhere. We’ll help ensure every aspect is covered.


You don’t have to worry about the bills, just get healthy.

Autumn D.

Dont make it harder than it needs to be. Choose Rutter Mills! I had never needed to contact an attorney, it was all new to me and I was in pain from being rear ended while at a stop light. I did like most and checked reviews. I called Rutter Mills and not for one second did I ever doubt my decision. I had the pleasure of working with attorney Andrew Boran and his paralegal Kathy Saunders. They were there for me every step of the way. Extremely understanding and knowledgeable. They stayed in touch with me and went to bat for me. I highly recommend them to anyone. Don't make it harder than it needs to be on yourself, CALL RUTTER MILLS NOW!

Sergio C

Adam Lotkin, my attorney, was straight forward and solid. He did what he said he would do. He kept reassuring me I was in good hands, and in the end, he proved, I was. When my case was finished, they treated me fairly and worked quickly to pay out my settlement. When going up against large insurance companies, Rutter Mills proved, your law firm does matter. Thank you all again, for taking a difficult time in my life and making it bearable.

Danielle E.

I came to Rutter Mills during one of the most difficult and terrifying times in my life. Mr. Young and his assistant Kathy Saunders were so welcoming and understanding. They worked diligently to handle my case. It is by no means a quick and easy process, however these two make the wait worth it. I hope you never find yourself in my shoes but if you do I highly recommend these two to help you along your process.

Lawrence W.

My experience is one that I would never forget I appreciate all the hard work that went into my case and a dedication and so grateful for the outcome. Thanks again, Ms.Montgomery. You and your staff are the best.

Ebony C.

My experience with Rutter Mills has been great. From the very beginning when I was browsing their website, to being called the same day, after giving brief information on the web chat. They handled the entire process, and I was approved within 6 months.
