Macon Georgia Uber Accident Attorney

Macon Georgia Uber Accident Attorney

If you are injured by someone working as an Uber driver, you likely have all kinds of questions about what to do and where you should turn for the help you need. All car accident claims are complicated, and Uber accidents are no exception. To turn up the volume a bit, however, there is also the question of which insurance policy (or policies) applies in Uber accidents. If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, it’s in the best interest of your health and claim to consult with an experienced Macon Uber accident attorney early in the process.

Navigating the Path Forward

If you are injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you file your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. If you are injured by an Uber driver’s negligence, however, the insurance company that you file your claim with can vary. Consider the following:

  • If the Uber driver has an Uber passenger or is on the way to pick up an Uber passenger, you will file your claim with Uber’s insurance provider, and you can expect the coverage to be robust.
  • If the Uber driver is on the Uber app but is not actually driving for Uber at the time – because he or she is waiting for an Uber passenger – Uber’s coverage is triggered at the point that the driver’s own coverage is exhausted.
  • If the Uber driver has logged off the app – regardless of how long ago – Uber’s coverage is out of the question, and your claim will proceed through the driver’s own insurance provider.
