Nevada uses fault-based insurance laws to resolve car accident claims. Under a fault-based system, the at-fault party will be financially responsible for causing victims’ injuries and damages. Cases involving transportation companies such as Uber and Lyft are different. Rather than only having the right to file a claim against the at-fault driver, you may have the right to hold the company liable. Both Uber and Lyft have $1 million insurance policies they split into three different periods.
If the Uber or Lyft driver was not in any of these periods, your claim will look like a typical car accident case. The driver’s personal policy will cover your damages. In Periods II and III, you may be able to recover compensation from the driver’s personal policy first, then the rideshare company’s insurer. Attorney Dr. Paul Janda can help you navigate a complex Uber or Lyft injury claim in Henderson.
