Why Uber Accident Claims are Different from Other Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
When you are injured in an accident that is caused by negligence on the part of another person or entity, you file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. This will enable you to recover compensation for your damages from the at-fault party or their insurance policy. When the at-fault party is a driver employed by a company, you will file your claim against the company. Transport companies take insurance to cover their drivers. You will be compensated for this insurance cover.
However, when an accident is caused by an Uber driver, there are different conditions you will need to consider in order to determine how to retrieve compensation for your damages.
1. The accident was caused by the Uber driver but the driver had no passenger and the app was off
In this scenario, the Uber driver is considered to be off the clock. This means that Uber’s insurance coverage does not apply to the accident. You will have to seek compensation from the driver’s own insurance policy.
2. The accident was caused by another driver
If you were a passenger in a vehicle driven by an Uber driver and were injured in an accident involving another motorist, you will need to seek compensation from the at-fault motorist. However, if the at-fault motorist is uninsured or underinsured, you may file a claim against Uber’s insurance policy. Uber’s insurance policy will provide coverage in addition to what the underinsured motorist’s policy provides. It only provides supplementary cover.
3. The accident was caused by an Uber driver on the clock but with no passenger
If you are involved in an accident caused by an Uber driver that is actively waiting for a request from a passenger or headed to pick up a passenger, you can seek compensation from Uber’s insurance policy. You will therefore receive coverage from Uber.
4. If the accident was caused by an Uber driver who is transporting a passenger
If you were involved in an accident with an Uber driver who was transporting a passenger at the time, you can file a claim against Uber’s car insurance policy.
