Q: Hi, I was involved in an accident while driving uber. I had a passenger with me. But i wasnt at fault.
So I talked to other driver’s insurance and they accepted the liability. But i didnt mention them that I was driving uber because i had no information of the passenger. But Now that passenger contacted the uber’s insurance. So i just want to know if i tell other insurance that it was a rider not my friend. Is it ok to do that? Would that impact negatively on me? I didnt claim for PIP as i and rider was fine. The only money i recieved was for my car’s damage which was minor.
A: You should immediately contact all involved insurance companies and advise them of the correct status of your passenger.

A: Uber provides it's drivers with coverage. You need to refer people to them. If you also had coverage and if your personal insurance knew it was for hire tell them also. Whether or not you were an uber driver has little to do with who is at fault. If the other person's at fault if you had no one in the car or 8 people it's the same.Other person is #1.
