What Should I Do After an Uber Car Accident?

At first glance, Uber is a great alternative to the taxi. With a push of a button, your own personal driver will arrive in minutes. For almost a third the price of a traditional cab service, you can go just about anywhere in Las Vegas and beyond. On top that, there are many different levels of service, with all-inclusive rates for anyone willing to pay the price. But what happens when this brand new service, meets a very old problem – like a car accident?

Who is Insured in an Uber Accident in Las Vegas?

As of this writing, Uber drivers are not considered employees of the company. According to Uber's policy, its drivers are independent contractors that are taking advantage of the technology that it provides. But they are not employees. This obviously presents a problem. If an Uber driver causes an accident, who is responsible?

Right now, it is the insurance companies. Uber drivers are expected to carry their own insurance for the car and any damages that may occur whilst in transit. There are specific parameters to this coverage, as well. In addition, Uber does provide a minimal amount of insurance for both its drivers and their passengers. However, the degree to which you are covered could be disputed and should be thoroughly reviewed by an attorney.
