Uber Accident Attorney and Lyft Accident Attorneys
With the explosion in the popularity of ride sharing companies like Uber and Lyft, it is not surprising that more and more of our clients find themselves involved in car accidents involving Uber or Lyft . When our clients are injured in these car accidents, they are often concerned about whether or not there will be insurance coverage for the accident from Uber or Lyft, whether or not they are entitled to compensation for their injuries from the car accident, and how they go about making a claim against Uber or Lyft or their own insurance company.
Can I make a claim if I was a passenger in a Lyft? Will the Uber driver’s personal insurance cover her for the car accident she caused? What if the Uber driver did not have a rider in his car when he hit me? Does Uber have uninsured motorist coverage if the other driver is uninsured at the time of the car accident? We are happy to tell our clients that in the vast majority of cases, Uber or Lyft’s insurance policies will provide insurance coverage for these types of car accidents and any injuries from the car wreck.
While each case needs individual scrutiny of the specific facts to determine if a claim can be made and, if so, if there is any available insurance coverage, the good news is that ride sharing companies such as Lyft or Uber do provide insurance to their drivers for these car accidents. In some cases, the amount of insurance coverage can be significant - even $1,000,000. These policies may protect you whether you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, driving your vehicle and are involved in an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver, or even if you are driving for Uber or Lyft at the time of the accident.
We specialize in representing Uber drivers, Lyft drivers, as well as passengers that are injured in an Uber or Lyft and drivers that have been hit by an individual driving for Uber or Lyft in a car accident. These cases involve specialized tactics to make sure you have the right evidence to establish insurance coverage for injuries you may have sustained in the car accident. If you are a passenger, for example, you may have a claim against both driver’s insurances, Lyft or Uber’s insurance, and even your own insurance.
What Should You Do if you are Involved in a Car Accident Involving Lyft or Uber?
If you are involved in a car accident with Lyft or Uber and are injured, you should seek medical attention immediately. Call the police. Get the names of all drivers and passengers and possible witnesses as well as insurance information, if available. Take photographs of the vehicles involved and the intersection. If you are an Uber or Lyft driver, you may be required to take a drug test immediately.
