Filing an Uber or Lyft Accident Claim

As more and more people turn to rideshare services, like Uber and Lyft, to get around, the risk of being involved in an accident with one of these vehicles has also increased.

How Do Rideshare Accident Claims Work?

In a typical car accident case, injured individuals have two options: they can file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, or they can file a claim through their own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. When one of the motorists in a motor vehicle accident is a commercial driver, the process of filing a claim becomes more complex. However, in most cases, injured victims can file a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault commercial driver’s employer, whether that’s a trucking company, a government entity, or some other party. But rideshare accident cases are not like either typical car accident claims or commercial vehicle accident cases.

So, what options do you have?

Fortunately, even though Uber and Lyft go to great lengths to limit their liability, both companies do offer coverage in the event that you are injured in an accident with one of their drivers. In some cases, you will need to file a claim with the rideshare driver’s private insurance carrier first and can only seek compensation through Uber or Lyft’s coverage once that claim has been denied.

What Accident Coverage Is Offered by Uber & Lyft?

Uber and Lyft offer varying levels of coverage for individuals injured in accidents caused by their drivers depending on the specifics of the crash.

Below, we’ve outlined possible available coverage for different driving periods recognized by Uber and Lyft:

What Can an Attorney Help You With Uber and Lyft Claims?

When you are injured in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle, the process of filing a claim can be complex and daunting. An experienced rideshare accident attorney can help you navigate this process and ensure that your rights are protected. A knowledgeable lawyer will have the resources to investigate your case and determine who is liable for the damages caused by the crash, as well as what type of compensation you may be entitled to receive from Uber or Lyft’s insurance coverage. They can also guide you through every step of filing a lawsuit against any responsible parties and fight hard to get you maximum financial recovery for your losses. With their knowledge of local laws, legal expertise, and understanding of how these companies operate, they will work tirelessly on your behalf so that justice is served.
