Liability in an Uber or Lyft Accident
When a person suffers an injury in a rideshare accident, he/she must determine who is liable and damages involved—just like any other car accident case.
If you were struck by an Uber/Lyft vehicle while driving your personal car, you could hold the driver responsible for any injuries and damages you sustained. However, if the driver doesn’t have adequate insurance coverage, it is possible to file a claim with the ridesharing company.
If you were a passenger of a rideshare vehicle when the accident occurred, Uber and Lyft can cover your injuries if the rideshare driver is at fault. They offer $1 million in coverage per accident.
If a third-party vehicle is at fault, then you must pursue a claim against that driver. If they’re uninsured or underinsured, Uber and Lyft offer $1 million for insurance and underinsured motorist coverage.
