Uber has a strict policy for accidents that their drivers are involved in. If you are the passenger of an Uber driver, your liability is limited to $1,000. This means that if the driver causes an accident and injuries you while driving you around, they will be responsible for paying up to $1,000 of medical expenses. The limit on liability applies only if the Uber driver was not found at fault by law enforcement or had less than three moving violations in the past year. If you get into an accident with someone who is driving for Uber Eats, they will be covered under their commercial insurance policy instead of personal auto insurance.
What should you do if you’re involved in a car accident with an Uber driver?
What should you do if you’re involved in a car accident with an Uber driver? If you’re the passenger, contact Uber and let them know. They’ll need to report it so they can take appropriate action against the driver. If you’re the driver, make sure your passengers are alright and then call emergency services (911) as well as Uber customer support and don’t forget contacting your Atlanta Uber Accident Lawyer.
Why are there so many accidents?
Uber’s accident policy is to take responsibility for any accidents that happen while a driver is on the clock. This means that if you get in an accident with Uber, they will cover all of your medical expenses and other damages. As long as the driver was working for Uber at the time of the crash, then Uber will pay for your injuries. The only exception to this rule is if the driver had someone else in their car who was not a paying passenger or family member at the time of the accident. In this case, Uber may offer some compensation but it will be substantially less than what they would have paid out if they were liable for all crashes involving drivers who are on duty during a ride.
