McDonough Ga. Uber Accident Attorney

McDonough Ga. Uber Accident Attorney

Once you are used to conjuring a driver with the tap of your finger, it can be difficult to forgo the immense convenience of Uber. Few of us miss the hassles of navigating heavy traffic and fighting for parking spots, but when Uber accidents occur, the matter is very different. If you’ve been injured by the negligence of an Uber driver, seek the legal counsel of an experienced McDonough Uber accident attorney.

The Insurance Difference

If you are injured in a car accident that was caused by another driver’s negligence, the path forward is fairly clear cut – you will file your claim with the other driver’s insurance provider. If the at-fault driver, however, is an Uber driver, things are a bit different. Consider the following distinctions – as they relate to insurance coverage for Uber accidents:

  • If the Uber driver is on the app and has an Uber passenger in his or her vehicle or is on his or her way to pick up an Uber passenger, the coverage carried by Uber itself is in play.
  • If the Uber driver is on the app but is waiting to be assigned a passenger, his or her own insurance coverage is likely responsible, but Uber’s coverage will kick in where the driver’s personal coverage ends.
  • If the Uber driver is not on the app – even if he or she just toggled off – the claim will proceed just as it would for any other car accident, and the driver’s personal insurance will cover the claim.
