Why Do I Need an Attorney?
Most accident victims who try and settle their injury claim without representation, suffer financially, mentally and emotionally. With over a decade of experience fighting for accident victims, the car accident lawyers at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers understand that insurance companies and insurance adjusters will diminish the value of your injury claim significantly if you are not legally represented. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we will do everything in our power to help you recover mentally, physically and financially. Our goal is to help our clients seek the necessary treatment to ensure all possible recovery.
Our goal is to alleviate any additional stressors that occur post-accident. Many injured accident victims suffer injuries that affect their ability to work. Many times, these accident victims do not have the time or funds to coordinate doctor’s visits, phone calls with insurance companies, on top of dealing with auto body shops or rental car companies. Once hired, our Los Angeles legal team will represent each Uber accident victim or Lyft accident victim as if they were family. Our team understands the effects of getting into an accident, and we will provide superior legal advice to all clients.
Uber and Lyft Insurance Policies:
Accident Claim against Uber or Lyft: It is essential to know that there are different policy limits for each accident depending on the circumstance.
- If the Uber or Lyft driver is using their car for personal reasons and you get in an accident, they are covered by their private auto insurance. Therefore, we would likely file a claim against their own insurance company.
- If the driver is logged into the app, but NOT transporting anyone at the time of the accident…their personal insurance will cover the injury. Then, Uber’s insurance will step in for another $50,000 per injury (up to $100,000) and up to $25,000 in damages.
- If the driver is transporting a passenger and gets into an accident, Uber has a $1 Million policy. This insurance policy may also offer cover those drivers who are uninsured and under-insured.
*It is important to know that if you are a passenger in the Uber or Lyft and the accident was indeed the Uber or Lyft drivers fault, you may file a claim against the $1 Million-dollar insurance policy because you were an innocent 3rd party.
