Uber Accident Liability
After a car accident, you often need to file a claim against the other driver’s insurance company. However, the law regarding Uber’s insurance is more complicated. You may need to file a claim with one or more of the following:
- The Uber driver’s personal coverage
- Uber’s corporate policy
- A third-party driver’s insurance, if another driver caused the accident
An Uber driver can be to blame for accidents for many reasons. Driving an Uber requires no special training or licensing, so these drivers can make mistakes like any other driver on the road. Some common causes of Uber crashes include:
- Fatigued driving
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Aggressive driving
- Running red lights
Uber drivers often work long hours, are often in a hurry, and are constantly checking their apps on their phones for directions. This can lead to dangerous driving behaviors that result in serious crashes and injuries to others.
