Complex Insurance Claims
If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, the issue of insurance plays an important role. Determining which insurance policy to address is critical, and this is based upon how the driver was engaged with the Uber app at the time of the accident. The insurance basics are as follows:
- If the driver was on the app and had a passenger or was on the way to pick up a passenger when the accident occurred, Uber’s insurance coverage is instigated.
- If the driver was on the app but had neither a passenger nor a passenger waiting for him or her, Uber’s insurance will cover what the driver’s personal insurance does not.
- If the driver wasn’t on the app at the time of the accident, your claim will proceed with the driver’s private insurance coverage – exactly as it would in any other traffic accident.
