When Uber accidents initially began to offer their services in California, they did not have the proper level of insurance coverage nor were they regulated by the same safety standards as other paid transportation services such as taxis.
Additionally, the agreements that their drivers had to sign severely limited the driver’s legal rights in the event they were in a serious accident while in between rides or while on the way to pick up an Uber customer. Uber were both adamant that their liability with regards to accidents was only when a customer was being given a ride. This left open a wide window where Uber drivers could injure or be injured while operating their vehicle for the ride sharing company, and yet they could escape liability. Understanding what type of accidents are covered by Uber and their insurance is vital to having a successful verdict for your Uber accident case.

This law, which went into effect on July 15th, 2015, was a necessary decision by lawmakers in California to protect the general public and will prevent these ‘loophole’ situations from happening in the future, where these highly profitable rideshare company was operating in our state without providing the proper insurance coverage for a commercial vehicle operator.
