The Role of Negligence in Uber Accident Claims in New York and New Jersey

In New York and New Jersey, negligence plays a central role in car accidents and injury claims—including those involving Uber drivers.

When someone is injured in an accident involving an Uber vehicle, whether as a passenger, another driver, pedestrian, or cyclist, they may pursue compensation for their injuries and damages by demonstrating that the Uber driver or another party was negligent.

Uber drivers owe a duty of care to their passengers, other drivers, pedestrians, and anyone sharing the road. This duty includes operating the vehicle safely, obeying traffic laws, and taking reasonable precautions to prevent accidents.

If an Uber driver fails to uphold their duty of care by driving recklessly, speeding, running red lights, driving while distracted, or engaging in other negligent behaviors, they may have breached that duty. When this is true, our New York and New Jersey Uber accident attorneys will pursue the driver, Uber, or both for our client’s financial recovery.

Here, we discuss how this process works.

Understanding How Negligence is Tied to Liability in New York and New Jersey Uber Accidents

At Omni Injury and Accident Law, our New York and New Jersey Uber accident lawyers investigate each of our client’s cases to ensure we can demonstrate that the Uber driver’s breach of duty directly caused the accident and the resulting injuries.

This may involve showing a direct link between the driver’s actions and the harm suffered.

We must also prove that they suffered damages due to the accident to recover compensation. Damages may include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other losses.

In addition to holding the Uber drivers accountable for their negligence, injured parties may also pursue claims against Uber itself. Uber may be held vicariously liable for the actions of its drivers if the driver was operating within the scope of their employment at the time of the accident.

Navigating the legal complexities of Uber accident claims requires a thorough understanding of negligence laws and rideshare regulations in New York and New Jersey. We can help.
