With UberEATS, you can order delivery from your favorite restaurants straight to your doorstep. It is fast, easy to use, and super convenient when you are not in the mood to get up from the couch, but desperately crave that steak from a restaurant that makes the best steaks in Los Angeles.
As you may or may not know, UberEATS offers on-demand food delivery from local restaurants and works the same as the ride-hailing Uber app. Meaning: UberEATS uses vehicles to deliver food in Los Angeles and all across California.
But what happens if you have been involved in an accident with an UberEATS vehicle? Does Uber’s insurance cover the UberEATS driver? These are the questions we asked our Uber accident attorney from the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg.

Uber, the regular ridesharing app in California, offers insurance coverage for both its drivers and customers. If you are not familiar with it, here are the basics:
If you have been involved in a car crash involving an UberEATS driver, you are probably wondering whether or not Uber’s regular insurance coverage will apply.

While it may seem that recognizing an UberEATS vehicle may be easy (most of them have stickers on the windows), it is not necessarily so. Here is the thing: finding out if UberEATS was involved in your car accident is tough for a variety of reasons.
First of all, not all UberEATS vehicles are marked. Second of all, not all UberEATS drivers want to admit that they were driving for UberEATS to avoid insurance problems and out of fear that Uber could suspend them from accepting future food delivery orders because of the accident.
In that case, to prove that the driver was driving for UberEATS and to get access to Uber’s $1 million insurance coverage, you will need a Los Angeles Uber accident attorney by your side.
