Many people opt for this service as it is quite convenient. However, contrary to popular belief, Uber rides are not safer than other means of transport.

An Experienced Philadelphia Uber Accident Lawyer from van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim Can Help You Navigate Issues That Often Arise in the Uber Accident Claims Process in Philadelphia

Recovering compensation for damages resulting from an Uber accident can be quite complex. There are different insurance companies involved in these cases. The insurer that carries liability will depend on the circumstances of the accident. The Uber driver’s activity at the time of the accident plays a major role in determining which insurer ought to be held liable.

When the Uber app was off

If the Uber app was off at the time of the accident, the Uber driver was not actively receiving requests. The Uber driver is therefore considered to have been off the clock at the time of the accident. In such a case, the driver’s personal liability insurance will take effect. Uber’s insurance will not be available.

When the Uber app was on

If the Uber app was on and the driver had no passenger at the time of the accident, the Uber driver will be considered to have been ‘on the clock’. In this case, Uber’s insurance will be available on a contingent basis. This means that Uber’s insurance will only cover losses not covered by the driver’s personal policy.

When the app is on and the driver is en route

If the Uber driver had the app turned on and was transporting a passenger or en route to pick up a passenger, Uber’s $1 million liability insurance cover will be available. This also includes $1 million underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage. When the Uber driver drops off their passenger, the Uber insurance coverage reverts back to Uber’s contingent coverage. If the driver turns off the app, then only their personal insurance coverage will be available.

Proving the status of the driver at the time of the accident can be challenging. It can also be challenging to gather other evidence to prove your claim. The team at van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim are experienced in representing clients in Uber accident claims. We will work to gather the evidence required to support your claim and fight vigorously to recover compensation on your behalf.
