What happens if you get in an Uber accident?
Whether you were injured in an Uber accident as a passenger or as another driver, figuring out whose insurance policy is responsible for damages can be confusing. Coverage depends on the status of the Uber driver at the time of the accident and the specific details of your crash. Different scenarios include:
- The Uber driver is offline and not available for ride requests: If the Uber driver is off duty and not logged into the app, the driver’s personal insurance policy would handle any accidents caused by the driver during this time period. This can create problems if you’ve been badly injured and the Uber driver’s personal insurance policy fails to cover all your accident-related expenses.
- The Uber driver is on duty and available for ride requests: When an Uber driver is logged into the app and is available for ride requests, the driver is covered by Uber’s limited liability insurance coverage. This policy covers up to $25,000 in property damage and has a bodily injury limit of $50,000 per person, with a per-accident limit of $100,000.
- The Uber driver is on duty and has accepted a ride request: If the Uber driver is logged into the app and on their way to pick up a passenger, they are covered by Uber’s $1 million insurance policy. That means if an Uber driver hits your car and you’re injured as a result, this policy can be triggered to compensate you for your damages. It also applies to pedestrians who are hit and injured by Uber drivers.
- The Uber driver is on duty and is carrying a passenger: Just like when the Uber driver is on their way to pick up a passenger, if the driver is on duty and carrying a passenger, that means they are covered by Uber’s $1 million insurance policy up until they drop off their passenger.
