Rideshare Accidents

Were You Injured In A Lyft Or Uber Accident?

Car crashes can be complicated legal affairs to work through, especially when people were seriously injured in the collision. You need to get in touch with both your insurance company, as well as the insurance company of the other driver or drivers involved in the accident. If your accident occurred while you were riding in an Uber or Lyft, you will also need to get in touch with the company’s insurer, which can add additional layers of complications. Our team is ready to help you understand and navigate the legal process in order to fight for the compensation you need.

Uber And Lyft Driver Insurance Policies

While the other driver may have been the person to cause your accident, in the vast majority of cases, the compensation you receive will come from their personal insurance policy. When you are injured in a car crash involving a Lyft or Uber, you could seek additional compensation from the company’s insurance policies. However, the amount these policies cover can vary depending on what the driver’s status is.

Both Lyft and Uber carry two levels of insurance, the first for when their app is on in driver mode, and the second for when they have been matched with a rider.

Lyft Driver Insurance Policy

  • While the Lyft app is in driver mode:
    • Up to $50,000 per person for bodily injury
    • Up to $100,000 total for bodily injury
    • Up to $25,000 total for property damage caused in the accident
  • After matching with a passenger:
    • Up to $1 million for crashes caused by an uninsured/underinsured motorist
    • Up to $1 million of total liability coverage
    • Actual cash value/repair cost of the vehicle, whichever is less, with a $2,500 deductible

Uber Driver Insurance Policy

    • Up to $50,000 per person for bodily injury
