As a result of increasing consumer frustration with its high fees, Uber Technology Inc. is adding a new disclosure to the checkout page of its food delivery app. In Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., consumers will now see the disclaimer when reviewing the subtotal, tax, delivery fee and total cost. But the disclaimer won't show up in other states. That's a shame for consumers and businesses in those states. Car Wreck lawyers
While the disclaimer may seem like a simple statement, the disclaimer has important implications for Uber Eats drivers. If a driver is involved in an auto accident and causes damage to the other driver's vehicle, the driver can face liability for the damages caused. For example, a driver's insurance policy will cover up to $1 million in damages if they cause a crash, but if the driver fails to pay, a passenger could be unable to receive compensation from Uber.
The bill is designed to address consumer complaints about third-party delivery services. In Iowa, complaints about such third-party delivery services are on the rise. In Iowa, for example, a restaurant called Trackside Bar & Grill was listed on Uber Eats without its permission. Uber is not against regulation - the company has similar policies for its drivers. But Uber doesn't support the current bill because some provisions are "overprescriptive."
In some cases, Uber Eats drivers who are involved in car accidents can file claims against the driver. Uber Eats provides insurance to drivers so that they are protected against accidents. While it's not easy to file a lawsuit, there may be grounds to claim compensation. Moreover, drivers who are engaged in active delivery may be covered by Uber Eats' insurance policy. However, the process of filing a claim can be confusing, so seeking legal counsel as soon as possible may help you avoid it.
