Understanding Compensation In Uber And Lyft Rideshare Accidents
While rideshare accidents may seem similar to other types of car accidents, many complicating factors make these cases more challenging. One of our knowledgeable attorneys will handle everything related to your case while you focus on recovering from your injuries. A few of the more complex issues at play in a rideshare accident case include:
- Whether the driver for the ride-share company was providing a ride
- Whether the accident occurred while the Uber or Lyft App was on or off, which has substantial effect on the limits of the insurance coverage.
- Whether the accident involved an Uber Eats Driver
- The total amount of property damage and bodily injuries insurance coverage
- The number of other parties involved in the accident
- The State’s Insurance Requirements for Ride-Share companies
Our lawyers will identify the liable parties in your accident and will then start working on your compensation claim. Our legal team will review your hospital bills, medical expenses, and salary receipts to quantify your total financial losses. In some cases, we also evaluate intangible losses to reach a more appropriate amount.

What To Do If You Are In An Accident Involving An Uber, Lyft?
It only takes the press of a button on your smartphone to order an Uber, Lyft, or another ridesharing service, but before you grab that next ride, take a few minutes to educate yourself in case an accident occurs.
Ridesharing is a rapidly growing industry. Uber reports that they have 91 million monthly active platform consumers, 3.9 million drivers, and 14 million trips completed each day. Lyft is not far behind in their numbers. While these services were designed to offer customers a safe and reliable method of transportation, with so many ridesharing drivers and passengers on the road, accidents are bound to happen.
According to TechCrunch, Uber’s recent safety report shows a low fatal accident rate compared to the national average, but it still doesn’t provide an accurate accounting of accidents. As a passenger of an Uber, Lyft, or any rideshare service, what happens after an accident and who is responsible if you are injured are crucial points to consider. Our blog discussing “What to do if you are in an accident with a Lyft or Uber” is a great resource and will provide more answers to common rideshare insurance coverage questions.
