Since 2014, Uber Eats has been connecting hungry folks to restaurants and making it easy for these individuals to order from their favorite restaurants without ever leaving their homes. Uber Eats has seen exponential growth, especially due to the massive affinity to technology that has happened in the last decade or so. Uber Eats drivers have therefore grown in the hundreds of thousands across the world, and these drivers are known as independent contractors, which basically means that Uber doesn’t hire these individuals outright but only uses them on an as-is basis. Due to the hectic schedules and the pressure to perform, these individuals are more likely to cause accidents on the road involving innocent pedestrians and drivers. If you’re one of these unfortunate victims, you must be wondering what to do with regard to seeking compensation and justice for your injuries, and this is where we come in.

Uber Eats expects all delivery persons working for them to be independent contractors. As a result, they are expected to have their own auto insurance. That said, vehicle insurance coverage is provided by the company.
The Uber Eats insurance coverage packages are as follows:
- Contingent collision and comprehensive insurance coverage of up to $1 million
- Third party liability capped at $1 million
- Underinsured or uninsured motorist of up to $1 million meant to cover bodily injury
It is important to note here that drivers aren’t covered by the insurance coverage packages listed above when they aren’t actively attending to orders, which can be confirmed via app activity. Therefore, if an Uber Eats driver causes your accident while they are not actively delivering an order, their insurance policy will apply, and not that of Uber.
