What Uber & Lyft Accident Victims Need To Know About Being Involved In An Accident
Uber and Lyft ensure their drivers and passengers with a 1 million dollar policy limit.
If, at the time of the accident, the Uber or Lyft driver had the app turned “on” but had not yet accepted a ride/picked up a passenger, both Uber and Lyft offer up to $50,000 in bodily injury coverage per person per accident or up to $100,000 in bodily injury coverage total per accident, as well as up to $25,000 in property damages.
If the Uber or Lyft driver did not have the app turned “on” (or, in other words, was not actively working for Uber/Lyft) at the time of the accident, neither Uber nor Lyft are liable for damages.
WHO CAN RECEIVE COMPENSATION FROM AN UBER OR LYFT ACCIDENT:
A motorist or passenger who is injured in a car accident where a ridesharing driver is at fault.
A passenger in an Uber or Lyft who is injured in an accident where another driver is at fault.
An injured passenger in an Uber or Lyft, even if it wasn’t the driver’s fault.
