Bucks County Uber Accident Lawyer
Lawyers tend to recommend getting a lawyer in almost every situation brought to them. The reality is that there are some matters for which that you do not necessarily need one. Uber Accidents involving injuries, however, are of a type of situation which you absolutely need to discuss your case with not just any attorney, but one who handles automobile accidents as a primary field of practice, whether the vehicle was alone or other vehicles were involved in the crash.
In recent years, Uber’s popularity has grown exponentially. However, the law does not always adapt well to rapid change, and there may be issues with medical bill protection in the event you are involved in an accident where you are an uninsured passenger. The issue is that you may not be covered in Pennsylvania because of a loophole in the way the law is written. In Pennsylvania, a there is nothing that states definitively that you have to have a medical payments provision in your commercial policy. This problem is also being seen in another no fault state, Michigan.
At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our attorneys and staff have handled all types of automobile accidents throughout the Commonwealth. With medical payments, the law is clear on who holds priority.
In the event that no vehicle has insurance, and there is no source of insurance otherwise, then the Pennsylvania Assigned Claims Plan would be the only option for the injured victim.
