Uber Accident Claims and Insurance
Under Florida law, vehicle owners are required to carry a minimum of $10,000 in PIP or personal injury protection. However, Uber drivers carry more insurance. Uber drivers carry up to $ 1,000,000 of bodily injury insurance and uninsured motorist coverage for Uber drivers and passengers. But there is some dispute whether the Uber insurance policy is primary or secondary insurance policy. Other issues that can affect an Uber accident and personal injury claims in Florida is whether or not the driver is working or, on the clock. If your Uber driver is not working then the insurance policy will likely not apply. If so, Uber car accident victims may need to look to the driver of the Uber vehicles insurance coverage. In these instances, how much insurance coverage is available will need to be analyzed just like in any other auto, car, or motor vehicle accident claim. For these reasons you should only contact an experienced car accident attorney or personal injury lawyer with experience handling car accident claims in Florida.
