It is important to know, that if you were injured in an accident involving a rideshare car company, you may be entitled to financial compensation for suffering an injury.

If you or a loved one have been recently injured, contact one of our car accident lawyers in San Francisco today.
Accident Claim Against Uber or Lyft: It is important to know that there are different policy limits for each accident depending on the circumstance. 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.
- If the Uber or Lyft driver is using their car for personal reasons and you get in an accident, they are covered under their personal auto insurance. Therefore, we would likely file a claim against their personal insurance company.
- If the driver is logged into the app, but NOT transporting anyone at the time of the accident…the injury will be covered by their personal insurance. 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 $1Million policy. This insurance policy may also offer cover those drivers who are uninsured and underinsured.
