Legal Options for Injured Rideshare Accident Victims

Uber and Lyft accident claims are more complex compared to claims involving private drivers. This is because you may be eligible for compensation under the rideshare company’s policy, not just the driver’s personal liability coverage.

Coverage from Uber or Lyft will depend on the driver’s status at the time of the accident:

  • If the driver was not logged into the app, you do not receive coverage under the company’s policy.
  • If the driver was logged into the app but had not accepted a ride request, you would receive $100,000 in bodily injury per accident, up to $50,000 per person, and $25,000 for property damage.
  • If the driver was on the way to pick up a passenger or had a passenger in the vehicle, you would receive up to $1 million in liability coverage.

You may need to pursue a claim against the driver’s personal insurance policy before you could file a claim with Uber or Lyft. In these situations, it is best to speak with a lawyer about your optimal path to financial recovery.

What to Do If You Are Injured in an Uber or Lyft Accident

Why Do Delivery Drivers Get into Accidents?

If you were involved in a rideshare accident, it is important to take steps to protect yourself and gather evidence for your case. After the collision, take the following steps:

  • Call 911 and report the accident.
  • Seek medical attention for your injuries.
  • Take as many pictures as you can of the accident, the rideshare vehicle, and your visible injuries.
  • Ask the driver if he or she was logged into the Uber or Lyft app at the time of the accident or take screenshots of your device.
  • If any witnesses saw the accident happen, ask for their contact information.
  • Collect the rideshare driver’s contact and license details and insurance information for his or her Uber and personal policies.

Once you receive treatment for your injuries, contact a rideshare accident attorney from the Janda Law Firm to discuss your case. Do not speak to any insurance or company representatives until you consult with a lawyer.
