How Much Insurance Coverage Is Available After an Uber Accident?

Filing a personal injury claim after your Uber collision is the best way to seek recovery for all of your losses.

Common damages filed for include the costs of your medical care, projected future treatment costs, your lost income, your pain and suffering, and any personal property repairs or replacements.

But who pays? It all depends on whether the driver is actively carrying a fare, looking for a fare, or has their Uber app online.

You can use the following table to determine what insurance you may be eligible to claim against, depending on the circumstances of your accident.

Keep in mind that the Uber company or insurance companies involved may do everything they can to split hairs regarding coverage. They may try to argue that the driver wasn’t technically en route, for instance, or Uber may try to get the driver’s private insurer to cover the damages. These possibilities are why it’s so important to work with an attorney experienced in strategies big companies use to reduce or avoid liability.

When Can I File an Insurance Claim Against the Uber Driver in My Accident?

In order to be eligible to file a claim against the Uber driver or their company, you must be prepared to prove that the driver was at-fault in the accident. 

If the accident involved you being hurt as a passenger after the driver was in a single-vehicle accident, then it is very likely that your driver was at-fault for the crash — barring extreme circumstances, such as severe weather.

If you were a passenger and your accident involved another driver, then the driver who was at-fault is responsible for the damages.

If you were a pedestrian, bicyclist, or operating another motor vehicle at the time of the accident, then liability is determined according to who was at-fault in the collision.

In situations where the fault may be shared, then damages will be apportioned according to each party’s percentage of fault. For example, if the Uber driver and another driver both hit you and both were responsible, their insurers will split the cost of liability for damages 50-50.

Uber Eats Drivers Have Liability Insurance, Too!

Just like passenger fares, food deliveries are covered by commercial liability insurance policies, depending on the circumstances. 

If you are hurt by an Uber Eats driver, then whether or not commercial insurance is available depends on whether the driver had the app active, whether they were actively transporting or picking up food, and whether or not they were waiting for a new trip request.
