How Do I Know If the Uber Driver Is At Fault?

There may be some clear indications that an Uber driver is at least partially to blame and liable for an accident, such as a driver admitting fault, being issued a citation or being arrested immediately following a crash.

In absence of these events, determining whether an Uber driver may be at fault can require going over evidence like (but not limited to):

If another driver, in addition to the Uber driver, shares fault for an accident, both drivers can be liable for compensating accident victims. Holding all at-fault parties accountable is pivotal to helping accident victims maximize the compensation from these claims.

What If the Driver Has Minimal, Insufficient or No Insurance?

Uber drivers are required to carry and provide proof of personal auto insurance (at least the minimum required by state law). It is not uncommon for Uber drivers to carry the minimum, and oftentimes, the minimum falls far short of being able to cover the injuries and damage caused by a car crash.

When Uber accident victims find themselves with more damages than the driver’s personal auto insurance can cover, they may be able to sue the driver and/or file a claim with JRIC. This may also be the case if the Uber driver does not have any personal auto insurance (which could occur if, for example, the policy has lapsed or the insurer has dropped the driver for some reason).
