What happens if my Uber or Lyft driver was responsible for the car accident?

If your Uber or Lyft driver was at fault for a car accident, as a passenger you can pursue a claim against them. Once a passenger is in the vehicle, the ride-share company’s insurance policy kicks in and covers the passenger’s injuries in the event of an accident. The highest Uber policy available is $1 million in coverage.

Because Uber and Lyft car accidents tend to be more complex than regular crashes, you should contact a knowledgeable personal injury attorney to determine your options for pursuing compensation. Many questions can arise as to what types of insurance are available, depending on the details of the case.
