WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., July 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Iscoe Law Firm, one of Florida’s leading personal injury attorney teams, knows that Uber and similar ridesharing accidents have changed the way people travel daily.
In cases where Uber drivers cause accidents, one may be able to pursue compensation from the driver’s personal insurance policy, Uber’s insurance policy, or a combination of both. Whether Uber’s insurance covers their drivers depends on what the driver was doing at the time of the crash.
“After an Uber accident you are likely entitled to compensation under your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance,” says Gary T. Iscoe, Esq. Founding Partner of Iscoe Law Firm. “If your injuries and other losses are substantial, however, you can usually seek compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance policy.”
If the driver’s Uber app was off during the accident, Uber’s insurance provides no coverage. As a victim, you need to make a claim on the driver’s personal auto insurance policy.
If the app is on and the driver is waiting for a request, Uber’s insurance provides 3rd party liability coverage to its drivers if the driver’s own insurance does not apply. The policy limits for this coverage are $50,000 for bodily injury, up to $100,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage per accident.
If an accident occurs while the Uber driver is picking up passengers or providing a ride, Uber’s insurance provides $1,000,000 in 3rd party liability coverage.
