You Need a Macon Uber Accident Attorney’s Legal Guidance
Uber makes getting around on your own terms seem like child’s play, but Uber accidents can be especially rough. To begin, you may have no idea which insurance company covers what, and if this is the case, you’re not alone. If you’ve been injured by an Uber driver’s negligence, make the call to an experienced Macon Uber accident attorney.
Who Covers What?
One of the most challenging aspects of Uber claims is determining which insurance policy covers what, and the definitive answer to this long-standing question is that it depends. Consider the following scenarios to get a better idea about how insurance coverage applies in Uber accidents when the Uber driver is at fault:
- If the Uber driver is on the Uber app and has a passenger, Uber’s robust coverage is on deck.
- If the Uber driver is on the Uber app and is on the way to pick up a passenger, Uber’s coverage remains in play.
- If the Uber driver is on the Uber app but does not have a passenger and is not on the way to pick up a passenger, Uber’s insurance will be triggered at the point that the Uber driver’s own coverage is exhausted.
- If the Uber driver is not on the Uber app (regardless of when he or she logged out), the driver’s personal coverage is responsible for covering your claim – just as it would be in any other car accident.
