Uber and Lyft both provide auto liability insurance coverage for its drivers to cover injuries caused by their drivers. Both rideshare companies carry insurance coverage up to $1 million per accident.
Typically, rideshare insurance coverage only applies to any car accidents occurring between the time that the rideshare driver accepts a ride request until the ride has been completed. If an accident occurs outside of this time frame, then drivers are personally responsible for any injuries or property damage that they cause. For that reason, rideshare drivers are also required to carry their own personal auto insurance.
After an Uber or Lyft accident, it is important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who can identify all possible sources of compensation for your injuries.
Like most car accidents, you may be able to recover compensation in the form of damages. There are two types of damages commonly awarded in car accident cases: economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages will provide compensation for medical bills, lost wages, medication and other out of pocket expenses. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, includes compensation for things like pain and suffering.
