Involved In An Uber or Lyft Crash?

Filing a car accident claim is rarely an easy process. It will only get more confusing if you were hurt while riding in a rideshare vehicle, such as an Uber or Lyft. Multiple parties could be liable for your damages, which means there could be multiple parties pushing back and challenging your claim.

Who is Liable for Your Rideshare Accident?

What party or parties should be held financially liable for your damages after a rideshare accident? The answer will depend on your role within the accident and who else was involved.

In most rideshare accident cases we have seen, the claims are filed by a passenger who had hailed an Uber or Lyft ride that then got into an accident. As a passenger, you might be able to seek damages from your own rideshare driver’s auto insurance policy if they were the cause of your crash. You could also need to file a claim against any motorist who crashed into your rideshare driver, as you would as an injured passenger in any other type of auto accident.

It is also possible your medical bills could be covered by a rideshare company’s insurance policy. Uber has announced that it will provide up to $1 million in bodily injury coverage for any accident that occurs while one of its contracted drivers is taking a rideshare passenger to their destination. How to make a claim for your fair portion of that insurance policy is likely not to be straightforward, though. It also does not take into account any of your other experienced damages, which could be worth more than your medical bills after a crash.

Important Information After a Rideshare Accident

You need to collect valuable information about other parties after a car accident, like their insurance information. As a rideshare passenger, you also need to know specifics about your rideshare service and driver that can help assign liability later.

Anytime you hire a rideshare service, you should record and save information regarding:

  • Driver’s name
  • Rideshare app registration or ride number
  • Vehicle description
  • License plate

We recommend you save this information to your phone for easy access later. Everyone traveling in your party should do the same in case one person’s phone becomes damaged and unusable in an accident.
