Uber accidents can become complicated

Uber drivers are no different than any other driver on the roadway. Those who drive for Uber usually have no additional driver training. These are people who use their regular vehicles to transport people from place to place. They are prone to accidents, just like anyone else. During the latest reporting year in Missouri, there were 153,422 total vehicle crashes during the latest reporting year, according to the DPS. Out of these incidents, there were 923 total fatalities and 57,270 total injuries.

There are various scenarios in which a person could be injured in an incident with an Uber vehicle. This can include:

  • Passengers of an Uber injured in an accident
  • Drivers and passengers in other vehicles injured in an accident with an Uber vehicle
  • Pedestrians or bicyclists injured in an incident with an Uber vehicle

Who is responsible for covering the damages?

The most common question a person has after an incident with an Uber vehicle is – Who is responsible for covering the crash-related expenses?

The answer to that question can be complicated because it depends on what the Uber vehicle driver’s status was at the time of the crash.

  • If the driver was not working for Uber at the time of a crash they caused and they were conducting their own personal business, then their personal insurance carrier will be responsible for covering the damages.
  • If the Uber driver was signed in to work but did not have a passenger and was not on the way to pick up a passenger when they cause a crash, their personal insurance carrier is still the primary coverage. Uber’s insurance will kick in only if a driver’s coverage limits are exhausted or a claim is denied.
  • If an Uber driver has a passenger or is on the way to pick one up, Uber’s $1 million liability insurance policy kicks in to cover anyone involved in an accident with the Uber vehicle.
