As A Driver In An Accident With An Uber or Lyft Driver:

Who pays for your Lyft or Uber accident related damages depends on what phase of the job the ride-sharing driver was in. Our lawyers want to make sure you get compensation for your damages, but Uber and Lyft don’t cover all situations, so we may have to file a claim with the other driver’s personal insurance. Even if you don’t obtain information for both the driver’s personal and Uber or Lyft insurance, our lawyers will get the information and handle your claim for you.
As An Uber or Lyft Driver:

When you are involved in a collision with a ridesharing vehicle, it is imperative to understand that it is a different situation compared to a normal car accident. Uber and Lyft do not consider their drivers as employees, but as independent contractors, which means these companies may be quick to deny injury claims filed against them.
If you suffered an injury in a car accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver, we are prepared to help you recover your entitled compensation. Our personal injury lawyer can thoroughly review your case and determine all of your available legal options in order to obtain the most favorable results possible.
Understanding Rideshare Insurance Policies
All ride-sharing drivers must carry their own personal insurance to be eligible to work for both Uber and Lyft. Furthermore, both companies carry $1 million of liability coverage for any crashes. However, coverage only applies to certain situations.
The following is a breakdown of Uber’s insurance policy:
- When the Uber app is off, the driver’s personal auto insurance is used in the event of an accident since they are not on the job, which means the company can’t be held liable.
- When the app is on and the driver is available, the driver’s personal insurance and Uber’s contingent liability coverage can be used in the event of an accident, which is between $50,000 and $100,000 for injures and $25,000 for property damage.
- When the driver is on an Uber trip and carrying a passenger, the company’s commercial insurance coverage is provided, which includes up to $1 million in third party liability, as well as $1 million in uninsured or underinsured coverage.
Lyft has similar insurance policies with their drivers. In regards to the other scenarios, recovering monetary damages can be quite complicated.
