Insurance Coverage for Your Financial Recovery in an Uber Accident in McAllen, TX

Uber provides insurance coverage for its drivers and passengers in McAllen, TX, but the coverage varies depending on the driver’s status at the time of the accident:

Period 1 – App Turned Off

If the Uber driver’s app is turned off, their personal insurance policy is in effect. Uber’s insurance does not apply during this period.

Period 2 – App Activated, Waiting for Ride Request

Uber’s contingent liability coverage applies during this period. It provides coverage for third-party injuries and property damage, but coverage limits may be lower compared to when the driver is actively transporting a passenger.

Period 3 – En Route to Pick Up or During Ride

Once an Uber driver accepts a ride request and is traveling to pick up a passenger or has already picked up a passenger, Uber’s commercial insurance policy is in effect. This policy covers liability for third-party injuries, property damage, and uninsured/underinsured motorists.

Our McAllen Uber Accident Lawyers will Pursue All Options to Maximize Your Financial Recovery

In an accident, we can help you seek financial recovery through a combination of insurance sources:

  • Uber’s Insurance: Depending on the driver’s status at the time of the accident, Uber’s insurance policies may cover your medical expenses and other losses.
  • Uber Driver’s Personal Insurance: If the Uber driver’s personal insurance is applicable, it may contribute to covering your damages, especially when the app is turned off.
  • Your Insurance: Your personal auto insurance may also come into play, particularly if the at-fault party’s insurance is insufficient to cover your losses.

Can You Sue Uber for Your Accident in McAllen, TX?

Yes, you may have the legal right to sue Uber depending on the circumstances. Tijerina Legal Group’s experienced Uber accident lawyers in McAllen will employ the following methods to establish Uber’s liability:

Driver Qualifications and Background Check 

We will obtain and analyze the driver’s qualifications and background check records maintained by Uber. If Uber failed to conduct a thorough background check or allowed an unqualified or unsafe driver onto the platform, it may be held liable for negligence.

Driver Training Records

If the driver lacked proper training or failed to complete required training programs, we will seek evidence of training records to demonstrate Uber’s potential negligence in ensuring its drivers are adequately prepared for safe driving practices.

Driving History Records

Accessing the driver’s history of traffic violations, accidents, or dangerous driving incidents is vital. If the driver had a record of unsafe behavior and Uber still permitted them to operate on the platform, it strengthens the case against Uber for negligence.
