Macon Uber Accident Lawyer

Macon Uber Accident Lawyer

You may wonder how you got around before Uber came our way, and while the convenience is very real, Uber accidents can be life-threatening. If an Uber driver causes you to be injured, you shouldn’t put off consulting with an experienced Macon Uber accident attorney.

Uber Drivers

Uber drivers shoulder a lot of responsibility. While they function as commercial drivers, they don’t need a specialized commercial driver’s license (CDL) – or the training and experience that comes with that – to do the job. Uber drivers are under a lot of pressure to perform, and this may contribute to increased Uber accidents.

Insurance Coverage

If an Uber driver’s negligence causes you to be injured in a car accident, the insurance company that covers your claim will depend upon where the Uber driver was in the Uber process when the accident occurred. Consider the following:

  • If the Uber driver is on the app and has a fare – or is on the way to pick up a fare – Uber’s considerable coverage is at-bat.
  • If the Uber driver is on the app but is only waiting for a fare, his or her own insurance coverage will be tapped first, and Uber will kick in when his or her own policy limits are exhausted.
  • If the Uber driver is no longer on the app, Uber’s coverage is not involved.
