Requesting an Uber from your smartphone can be highly convenient, but when that ride results in serious injuries, things become very inconvenient very quickly. If you’ve been injured in a crash involving an Uber vehicle, contact an experienced Uber accident lawyer in Henry County today.
Uber’s Responsibility for Your Crash
The Uber company itself will try to avoid responsibility for Uber accidents whenever possible. As such, Uber drivers are independent contractors and are not employees of Uber. This fact helps Uber avoid a lot of liability, though the company will still be involved in many accident claims. The company has been forced to provide insurance coverage for its drivers in specific situations, which means that some insurance claims will be against the company itself.
If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, the insurance company that you should be dealing with isn’t always clear, but the following basics apply:
- If the Uber driver was on the Uber app and either had a fare or was on his or her way to pick one up, Uber has insurance coverage in place.
- If the Uber driver was on the app but had no fares in play, either Uber’s insurance or the driver’s insurance may be invoked (there is some ambiguity in these situations).
- If the Uber driver wasn’t on the Uber app, then you will proceed as you would with any other car accident and will file your claim against the driver’s personal policy.
