Compensation in Uber & Lyft Accidents
The responsible party and insurance company depend on several factors. If you were injured as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, the company’s insurance would provide coverage for your injuries and damages. If you are in a vehicle that was hit by a ridesharing driver, liability would depend on whether the driver was carrying a passenger or not working. When the driver has a passenger, the ridesharing company’s insurance would apply. However, if the driver does not have a passenger, his or her personal insurance coverage would be responsible.
