Uber’s Insurance Coverage

Uber requires its drivers to carry personal auto insurance policies. However, Uber also provides insurance coverage for its drivers, but the coverage is conditional. Uber drivers are independent contractors and therefore, Uber’s insurance policies only cover them based on the driver’s activity at the time of the accident. 

When the driver is not using the app, their personal insurance covers them. When a driver is logged in to the app but not on a ride, Uber provides primary auto liability with coverage of $50,000 per person, $150,000 per incident for bodily injury, and $25,000 for property damage.

When the driver has a passenger in the vehicle or is on the way to pick up a passenger, Uber’s $1 million liability insurance applies. 

This coverage is critical because many drivers may not have adequate insurance coverage to cover damages from an accident. 

Injury Claims Involving Ridesharing Companies

Personal injury cases involving Uber vehicles typically involve multiple parties and multiple insurance companies. Oftentimes, insurers will dispute liability and their obligations to pay insurance coverage. Large commercial companies such as Uber employ large teams of attorneys that fiercely defend claims to minimize personal injury settlement payouts. 

At George B. Bishop, Jr. Attorney at Law, we utilize custom legal strategies based on the unique facts of your case to effectively negotiate with forceful commercial insurers like those that represent Uber. 

From opening claims, completing a comprehensive investigation, and efficiently negotiating liability and settlements, our car accident attorneys in Moncks Corner, SC can provide compelling legal representation to help you seek justice in your Uber accident case.
