Frequently Asked Rideshare Accident Questions

What is Uber and Lyft’s Insurance Model?

Uber and Lyft famously provide up to $1 million in liability coverage for drivers and passengers injured in collisions with Uber and Lyft drivers, but this policy only applies in certain circumstances.

 

 

 

How Can You Establish Liability Coverage with Uber or Lyft?

First, you will need to establish that their driver was responsible for the accident. Second, you will need to prove that the driver was working for the rideshare company at the time of the accident. Third, you will need to file a claim with the driver’s personal insurance company first.

Many personal policies have a business exemption that declines coverage if the driver was operating their vehicle for a commercial purpose at the time of the accident. If the driver’s insurance denies your claim or you exhaust its policy limits and need more funds for your injuries, you can file a claim with Uber and Lyft’s policies.

What Are Uber and Lyft's Coverages?

Uber and Lyft provide the following coverages and amounts based on the stage of the ride the driver was in during the accident.

  • If the driver did not have the Uber or Lyft app open, you cannot receive coverage under the Uber or Lyft policy.
  • If the driver was on the Uber or Lyft app but did not have a ride request, coverage includes up to $50,000 in bodily injury liability per person, $100,000 in total injury liability per accident, and $25,000 in property damage liability.
  • If the driver is on the way to pick up a passenger or the passenger is in the car, liability coverage includes up to $1 million.

Can You File a Lawsuit Against Uber or Lyft?

Uber and Lyft consider their drivers independent contractors instead of employees. This essentially releases the companies from liability for any accidents that their drivers cause. In most cases, you won’t be eligible to file a lawsuit against Uber or Lyft directly if the insurance option does not work out.

However, you may be able to file a claim against the at-fault Uber or Lyft driver and his or her private insurance company. Speak to an attorney at Jordan Law to discuss your options.
