Frequently Asked Rideshare Accident Questions

What Are Your Legal Options After an Uber or Lyft Accident?

If you are in an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver or you were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft at the time of a crash, your legal options look slightly different than if you were in an accident with another driver. Since Uber and Lyft consider their drivers independent contractors, you are not able to hold the company liable in a lawsuit.

Generally, you will need to file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance policy before you can try to pursue coverage under the Uber or Lyft policy. If the driver did not have the Uber or Lyft app open at the time of the accident, your only option is to file a claim with his or her insurance company. If the insurance company does not provide you with an acceptable offer, you may file a personal injury lawsuit in civil court.

What If the Driver Had the Uber or Lyft App Open at the Time of the Accident?

If the driver had the Uber or Lyft app open at the time of the accident, you may file a claim with Uber or Lyft’s insurance policy after the driver’s company denies your claim. These companies generally provide the following amounts of coverage depending on the stage of the ride at the time of the accident.

  • If the at-fault driver had the app open but did not accept a ride request yet, coverage includes $50,000 in bodily injury liability per person, $100,000 in total injury liability, and $25,000 in property damage liability.
  • If the at-fault driver accepted a trip and was on the way to pick up the passenger, the companies provide up to $1 million in liability coverage.
  • If a passenger was inside of the vehicle, the companies provide up to $1 million in liability coverage.

How Do You Prove Negligence in an Uber & Lyft Claim?

Whether you file a lawsuit, a claim with Uber or Lyft’s insurance, or a claim with the driver’s private insurance, you will need to prove that he or she was responsible for the accident. To do this, you will need to establish that he or she owed you a duty of care at the time of the accident and breached it in some way, leading to your injuries.

Proving negligence can be difficult if you are handling your case alone. Trust Jordan Law to investigate your claim and collect the evidence necessary to build a compelling case in your favor.
