Insurance Requirements in Tulsa Uber Accident Claims

Rideshare companies have specific insurance requirements as outlined in Oklahoma Statutes §47-1025:

“A. On or before July 1, 2015, and thereafter, a transportation network company driver or TNC on the TNC driver’s behalf shall maintain primary automobile insurance that recognizes that the driver is a TNC driver or otherwise uses a vehicle to transport passengers for compensation and covers the driver: 1. While the driver is both logged on to and available to receive transportation requests on the TNC’s digital network; or 2. While the driver is engaged in providing prearranged rides. B. The following automobile insurance requirements shall apply while a TNC driver is both logged on to the TNC’s digital network and available to receive transportation requests but is not engaged in prearranged rides: 1. Primary automobile liability insurance in the amount of at least Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000.00) for death and bodily injury per person, One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00) for death and bodily injury per incident, and Twenty-five Thousand Dollars ($25,000.00) for property damage;…C. The following automobile insurance requirements shall apply while a TNC driver is engaged in a prearranged ride: 1. Primary automobile liability insurance that provides at least One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) for death, bodily injury, and property damage; 2. Uninsured motorist coverage where not waived pursuant to Section 3636 of Title 36 of the Oklahoma Statutes…”

What this means is that Uber drivers must maintain varying levels of insurance coverage based on their activity at the time of an accident:

  • App Off: When the driver is not logged into the rideshare app, their personal auto insurance applies, which must meet Oklahoma’s minimum requirements of $25,000 for bodily injury per person, $50,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage.
  • App On, No Passenger: When the driver is logged into the app but has not yet picked up a passenger, Uber and Lyft provide additional coverage of $50,000 for bodily injury per person, $100,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage.
  • App On, With Passenger: When the driver is en route to pick up a passenger or has a passenger in the vehicle, Uber and Lyft provide up to $1,000,000 in third-party liability coverage, including uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage.

Proving Tulsa Uber Accident Claims

Determining the exact circumstances of an Uber accident is crucial for establishing the appropriate insurance coverage and processing the claim effectively. The driver’s status at the time of the accident—whether logged into the app, en route to pick up a passenger or carrying a passenger—directly impacts which insurance policy applies. Accurate documentation, such as police reports, app records, witness statements, and photographic evidence, is essential for verifying the facts. Additionally, a thorough understanding of Uber’s policy is invaluable for analyzing evidence when communicating with Uber and advocating for the victim to ensure maximum compensation​.
