Jonesboro Georgia Uber Accident Attorney
Uber is a great way to get around, but Uber accidents are dangerous, and the claims process can be even more complicated than other car accidents are. If an Uber driver’s negligence leaves you injured in an accident, allowing an experienced Jonesboro Uber accident attorney to handle your claim while you tend to the important matter of recovering your health and well-being is the best course of action.
The Matter of Insurance
If a motorist’s negligence leaves you seriously injured in a car accident, you file your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider (this part, at least, is fairly straightforward). If the driver who causes you to be injured, however, is an Uber driver, the matter is a bit more complicated. When an Uber driver is on the Uber app, he or she has some coverage through the Uber company. Consider the following scenarios:
- If the Uber driver has already picked up an Uber passenger or is on the way to do so, the company’s considerable coverage is in play.
- If the Uber driver is waiting for a passenger to be assigned – and does not currently have a passenger in his or her vehicle or isn’t on the way to pick one up – Uber’s coverage will cover those losses that are not covered by the driver’s personal coverage.
- If the Uber driver is not on the Uber app – even if he or she just logged off – Uber has no more liability, and the driver’s personal coverage is responsible for handling your claim (just like it would be in any other car accident).
