If you are injured as a passenger in an accident that involves an Uber driver, the circumstances of the accident will determine who is responsible for your claim, and this can add an additional layer or complication to an already complicated matter. If you’ve been so injured, reach out to an experienced Kansas City Uber accident attorney today.
Understanding Your Uber Accident
If the Uber accident was caused by the Uber driver’s negligence, your claim would proceed in one of the following ways:
- If the Uber driver was on the app and either had a passenger or was on the way to pick one up, Uber’s robust insurance will cover your claim.
- If the Uber driver was on the app but was waiting to be assigned a passenger, the driver’s personal coverage (which Uber drivers are required to carry) will be first up, and Uber’s coverage will pick up where the personal coverage ends.
- If the Uber driver was off the app (even if it was just momentarily), your claim will proceed in the same way that any other car accident claim would.

Uber Accident FAQ
Can’t I trust the insurance company to cover my losses?
Regardless of the insurance company that handles your case, it is in the practice of maximizing its profits, which means obtaining just compensation is going to be a challenge.
What steps should I take after an Uber accident?
The most important thing you can do after an Uber accident is to seek the medical attention you need and then consult with a dedicated Uber accident attorney.
What if the Uber driver isn’t at fault?
If a motorist other than the Uber driver is responsible for your accident (that also involves an Uber driver), you will file your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider.
