Have you or loved one been injured in an accident with a rideshare company vehicle?
First things first, let us explain:
- If the Uber driver is using his/her car for individual reasons and is not logged in the app he/she is covered under their personal auto insurance.
- If the driver is logged into the app but not transporting anyone at the time, the accident at which they were involved in, is covered by their personal insurance, then Uber’s insurance will step in for another $50,000 per injury (up to $100,000) and up to $25,000 in damage.
- When the driver is transporting a passenger and gets in an accident, Uber steps in and has a $1Million policy. This insurance policy will also cover those drivers who are uninsured and underinsured.
