We understand how Uber’s insurance works and can handle your case for you. All you need to focus on is your physical recovery. We will manage the entire legal process for you.
We Handle All Types of Uber Accident Cases
We can help you understand your options for compensation after a New York Uber accident if you are:
- An Uber driver
- An Uber passenger
- A third party (e.g., another driver, a cyclist, a pedestrian) hit by an Uber driver
Uber provides insurance coverage depending on what the driver was doing at the time of the crash:
- If the Uber driver was logged into the app and waiting to match with a rider, Uber provides liability coverage, personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, and uninsured motorist coverage.
- If the driver matched with a rider or has a rider in the car, Uber provides up to $1.25 million in liability coverage, $50,000 per person in PIP coverage, and up to $1.25 million in uninsured motorist coverage.
If the Uber driver was not logged into the app, their personal insurance applies. If a third-party driver caused the accident, their insurance will apply. In many instances, both the third-party and the Uber driver’s insurance apply.
Our rideshare accident team will investigate the accident to determine which coverage applies. Call us for a free case evaluation today: 516-932-0400.
