What to do After an Uber Accident

If you’ve been hurt in an Uber accident, either as a passenger or in another vehicle, you should do what you can to document the incident. The first thing you should do is call the police, as they will write up an accident report and send medical attention to the scene of the accident. You should also take pictures of the scene of the accident and speak with any witnesses. Obtaining their contact information can go a long way. Once you document the accident and are taken to a hospital for treatment, you should keep a copy of all medical documents/bills as well. Finally, if you wish to file a personal injury claim, you should speak with a Port. St. Lucie Uber accident lawyer at once.

Uber’s Liability Coverage

Uber has a liability coverage system in place to help those who’ve been injured in Uber accidents obtain the compensation they require. The system is organized by “periods.” They are as follows:

  • Period 0: If an Uber driver has not yet logged into the rideshare app and causes an accident with another driver, the injured driver will have to sue the Uber driver’s private insurance, as Uber does not provide liability coverage in this case.
  • Period 1: When an Uber driver who is logged into the rideshare app but has not yet accepted a ride causes an accident, Uber should provide liability coverage to the party injured by the Uber driver. This liability coverage is for up to $50,000 per person injured in the accident, $100,000 total injury liability per accident, and $25,000 in property damage liability.
  • Period 2: This is when an Uber driver is en route to pick up a passenger and causes an accident. In this case, Uber provides the injured party with up to $1 million in liability coverage.
  • Period 3: Period 3 is when an Uber driver has a passenger in the car and causes an accident. If you are an injured passenger, Uber will provide $1 million in liability coverage, limited coverage for damage to the driver’s car, and uninsured motorists’ coverage.
