When Are Uber Drivers Liable for My Injuries?
Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have always fought to have their employees classified as independent contractors rather than full time workers in order to avoid liability in accident claims. What this means for you is that Uber will only provide rideshare drivers with insurance coverage when they are actively operating their vehicles for the benefit of the rideshare company.
Rideshare drivers are covered by Uber’s accident insurance when they are injured or cause injury in the following situations:
- When logged into the Uber app and waiting for a ride request
- After accepting a ride request but before the passenger is in the vehicle
- During an active ride when the passenger is in the vehicle
If you are injured due to an Uber driver’s negligence while they are logged into the app and/or otherwise representing the company, Uber’s insurance coverage will kick in. Otherwise, you will need to file a claim against the Uber driver’s personal auto insurance provider.
A serious Uber accident can result in catastrophic injuries, extensive medical care, and weeks or even months of recuperation. The purpose of filing a claim against Uber and/or the rideshare driver is to reimburse you for specific costs related to your injuries.
In Texas, compensation in such cases typically covers the following:
- All medical expenses resulting from your accident-related injury
- Wage replacement while you are unable to return to work
- Property damage costs
- Pain and suffering
- Death benefits for surviving dependents, including funeral expenses
