Frequently Asked Rideshare Accident Questions

Can You Sue Uber or Lyft after an accident?

Uber and Lyft follow very similar business and insurance models. These companies consider their drivers independent contractors, not employees. In most cases, you cannot file a lawsuit against Uber or Lyft directly after a rideshare accident. However, you could file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault rideshare driver if your insurance claim is not successful.

What If That Company Denies Your Claim or Your Damages Exceed the Policy Limits?

After a rideshare accident, Uber and Lyft require you to file a claim with the driver’s personal insurance first. If that company denies your claim or your damages exceed the policy limits, you can file a claim with Uber or Lyft’s insurance. The companies typically provide the following coverages and amounts of coverage:

  • If the driver did not have the Uber or Lyft app open during the accident, you do not receive company coverage.
  • If the driver had the app open but was not on an active ride, you can receive up to $25,000 in property damage coverage, $50,000 in individual bodily injury liability, and $100,000 in total injury liability.
  • If the driver had a passenger in the vehicle or was driving to pick up a passenger, you can receive up to $1 million in liability coverage.

What to Do After a Colorado Springs Rideshare Accident?

After a rideshare accident, it is important to collect as much evidence as you can to aid in your future claim. If you can move safely and without injury, take the following steps to preserve your claim.

  • Call 911 to bring law enforcement and medical attention to the scene, and collect the responding officer’s badge number to find your police report later.
  • Seek treatment for your injuries, even if you do not feel in pain. Collect all medical records for use in your future claims.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene, including your injuries, both vehicles, and any traffic signs.
  • Exchange contact, license, and insurance information with the other driver.
  • If you were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, take screenshots of your app with the ride information visible.
  • If there are any witnesses in the area, ask for their contact information. They may be able to provide testimony in your future claim.
