Who Is Liable If You Are Injured?
If you are a passenger, driver or pedestrian involved in an Uber or Lyft accident, you have the right to recover damages for injuries, But who pays?

Rideshare collision claims may involve several insurance companies, including the rideshare company’s insurer, the driver’s insurer and the passenger’s insurer. Our highly skilled personal injury attorneys know how these insurance companies work in app-based rideshare accident claims. Our years of experience can assist you in garnering the most positive results in your situation.

If You Were The Rideshare Driver
Your insurance coverage is dependent upon where you were in the transportation process when the accident occurred. The coverage offered by the Lyft or Uber company’s policy and/or your own car insurance policy depends on certain circumstances, including:
- Whether you were transporting a passenger
- Whether you were driving to pick up a passenger
- Whether your app was on while you were waiting for a ride request
- Whether your app was off
