Liability for Uber Accidents
Uber accident claims are somewhat unique in that the source of the income coverage depends upon where the Uber driver is in the Uber process. The bottom line, however, is that you’ve been injured by another driver’s negligence, which makes obtaining just compensation paramount, and an experienced Beverly Hills Uber accident attorney can help.
On the Uber App
If the driver who leaves you injured is on the Uber app at the time of the accident, there are two stages of coverage, including:
- If the driver is on the Uber app and either has an Uber passenger or is on the way to pick up an Uber passenger at the time of the accident, your claim will be filed with Uber’s comprehensive policy.
- If the driver is on the Uber app but is waiting for a passenger to be assigned at the time of the accident, Uber’s coverage will be triggered at the point that the driver’s personal coverage reaches its limit.
If the driver is on the app, Uber’s coverage is potentially at bat for covering your losses.
Off the Uber App
As soon as the Uber driver logs off the Uber app, he or she is no longer covered by Uber, and if an accident ensues, the driver’s own policy is responsible for covering it. The fact that rideshare drivers often toggle between different rideshare apps behind the wheel can complicate the issue further.
