Boynton Beach Uber Accidents Lawyer
As an alternative to riding public transportation, more and more Floridians are using their mobile phones to book an Uber ride. Because Uber vehicles are not commercial vehicles but are privately owned, and therefore, maintained by the drivers, this enables Uber to offer private rides at discounted rates.
But the downside to the discounted rates and privacy is that Uber passengers and other motorists that may get into an accident with an Uber driver may not be protected if they get injured in an accident. The skilled Boynton Beach Uber accident attorneys of Demand The Limits can help you understand all your legal options and rights if you get into an accident involving a negligent Uber driver.
Getting Compensation for a Boynton Beach Uber Accident
A lot of people are naturally concerned about what happens when they suffer injuries in a Boynton Beach Uber accident. Will the driver be accountable for their actions or in an accident, or will Uber share the liability even when the driver isn’t an employee, and Uber doesn’t own the vehicle?
To better understand if a passenger or another motorist will be covered under Uber’s insurance coverage, you should know that Uber’s policy depends on what exactly the driver was doing when the accident occurred:
- If the Uber driver is logged into the app, en route to a passenger, or is carrying a passenger, Uber’s third-party liability coverage amounting to $1 million will apply. Coverage may also include underinsured and uninsured motorist insurance and contingent collision and comprehensive insurance.
- If the Uber driver doesn’t have a passenger but is waiting for a ride request, the driver’s personal auto insurance plan will apply. Uber also provides extra coverage up to $25,000 for property damage, $50,000 for bodily injury for each person, and $100,000 for bodily injury for each accident.
- If the Uber driver is not logged into the app, their personal auto insurance coverage will apply.
The auto insurance coverage that Uber offers does provide some reassurance to passengers and other motorists. On the other hand, it’s been proven time and time again that actually obtaining compensation from Uber’s auto insurance provider is not always easy.
