Whether you’re an Uber passenger, Uber driver, another driver, a motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian, you don’t want to be seriously injured in an accident involving an Uber vehicle. While your medical bills are growing and your time away from work is increasing, you’ll be caught in the middle.
Two or three insurance companies will be pointing their fingers at each other because nobody wants to pay for your injuries and damages. You’re the victim, but you could easily get caught in the middle when you did nothing wrong at all. At Maison Law, we’ve seen this scenario before, and we know how to compel compensation for your injuries and damages.
Uber Accident Injuries
You might be a back seat passenger of an Uber driver who suffers a neck injury and a concussion, or you might be another motorist who suffers internal organ damage. If you were a bicyclist or pedestrian, you might be dealing with severe fractures requiring surgery along with other injuries. In any case, you don’t want to be caught in the middle and trying to tread water for an indefinite period of time. The impasse will be between the Uber driver’s personal insurer, Uber’s insurer, and quite possibly, your own insurer too.
Glendale Uber Insurance Policy
California Law requires an Uber vehicle to have $1 million of liability and uninsured motorist insurance that becomes effective from the moment that a driver agrees to pick up a customer to the moment that the customer leaves the Uber vehicle at his or her destination. If the Uber driver is logged onto the company’s service app while waiting for a customer, a $50,000 per person and $100,000 per occurrence coverage requirement exists.
If the driver isn’t logged in, his or her own personal insurance coverage applies. That might be as low as California’s minimum limits of $15,000 per person and $30,000 per occurrence. Now, you see the reason for all of the finger-pointing. It has nothing to do with the concerns of a seriously injured victim. It’s all about money.
