In law writing. There is a lot of details to consider:
1) You work for Uber (so you are under their watch) on any ride.
2) Even if you are an Independent Contractor (which under the law you are not) Uber is supposed to cover you as they are assigning you to do a task. If they assigned you to do a task, you are an employee.
They are playing with all the drivers by saying you are an Independent Contractor but under the law you are not. If the pax pays you directly, the transaction is between you and the pax but Uber is the one that pays you, than you are a employee.
If a driver suffer an accident by doing the assigned task, you should be cover by Uber insurance policy but Uber said You are not. ???

über will contend that they aren't responsible , they are just a technology company who provides dispatching/payment applications for cell phones to facilitate livery services.

The vehicle that the victim was driving as well as the one that hit his car, neither are owned by Uber nor under their control.

Needless to say, the victim of this accident needs to consult a lawyer on it. Insurance and tort law are complex. Maybe the driver of the other car has insurance policies that can be tapped, or owns property that can be attached to recover his expenses.

Owning a home and having other assets that can be attached in a liability case is the main reason you should not drive rideshare or set up a LLC to shield those assets.
