Seeking Compensation for Uber & Lyft Accidents

While Uber and Lyft accidents may be similar to other vehicle collisions, the legal process is different and the defendant fights it hard. Victims of such accidents may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, necessitating the assistance of experienced legal professionals to navigate these claims successfully.

Seeking this compensation can be complex, as it involves determining liability between the driver, rideshare company, and other parties. To protect the victims, it is always best to consult an experienced law firm familiar with the laws. Fiore Legal has successfully recovered millions on behalf of our Uber and Lyft accident clients and would love to do the same for you.

Determining Liability in Uber and Lyft Accidents

Determining liability in Uber and Lyft accidents is complicated because multiple parties are involved, such as yourself, the Uber/Lyft driver, the rideshare company, and the other driver(s) involved. But like other accidents, liability is generally determined based on a person’s negligence, so it is in your best interest to hire an Uber accident attorney to handle your legal issues.

Lyft and Uber Accident Insurance Coverage

Three separate periods determine the type of insurance coverage available to victims:

Period 1

The driver is online and awaiting a fare. If the driver is online, awaiting a fare, and has gotten into an accident, there is 50/100/25 in liability coverage for Uber and Lyft. This means liability limits are $50,000 per person, $100,000 for bodily injury, and $25,000 for property damage. As for collision coverage, this depends on whether or not the driver maintains their own coverage.

Period 2

The driver has already accepted a fare and is on the way to pick up the passenger. If a driver is in an accident during this period, there is $1 million in liability, uninsured, and underinsured coverage. Collision coverage depends on whether the driver has their own collision coverage.

Period 3

The driver has picked up the passenger and is heading to the destination. During this period, there is $1 million in liability, uninsured, and underinsured coverage. Similar to periods one and two, collision coverage depends on whether the driver retains personal coverage.
