Uber Insurance Requirements

Taxi cabs have licenses through the state. The drivers and the vehicles owners must meet all state and local insurance requirements. If there is an accident, laws specific to taxi cabs determine liability.

Uber and Lyft are not taxi cab services. The vehicles belong to the drivers, not the company. And although Uber and Lyft carry insurance, the drivers must carry personal vehicle insurance to guarantee coverage for all accidents. Yet, the rules determining liability are unclear. In many cases, the company insurance is secondary to the driver’s personal vehicle insurance. And in some cases, there is no insurance coverage at all.

Confusing Rules Make Uber Different from Other Pennsylvania Car Accidents

Like most big companies, Uber wants to make a profit. Paying for accident claims reduces profits, so Uber uses several “tricks” to avoid paying victims of Uber accidents.

  1. Uber considers itself a technology provider, much like your cable company or internet service provider. Since it is not a transportation company, Uber limits its responsibility for Uber accidents.
  2. Drivers are not Uber employees. All Uber drivers are independent contractors. It is these contractors who are responsible for providing safe transportation.

You choose Uber because they promise a safe ride. But these tactics transfer Uber’s responsibility for your safety to the driver. This makes it difficult for victims of Uber accidents to get compensation from the company. And it hurts Uber accident victims because many drivers have limited insurance coverage. This is unfair.
