Los Angeles Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyers

Understanding Your Right to Recovery in Rideshare Accident Claims

As more and more people in Los Angeles come to rely on rideshare services, like Lyft and Uber, the rate of rideshare-related auto accidents has increased. Liability in such accidents is much more complex than in typical car accident cases, because Uber and Lyft drivers have a different duty of care to others than the average motorist. That being said, they are not technically under the employment of their respective rideshare companies but, rather, are similar to contracted employees. These factors make Uber and Lyft accidents very complicated to litigate.

If you were involved in an accident with an Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare vehicle—whether as a passenger of the rideshare vehicle, the driver or passenger of another vehicle, or as a pedestrian or bicyclist—you do have the right to take legal action to seek compensation for your damages.

Compensation in Uber & Lyft Accident Claims

Both Uber and Lyft offer different coverage levels in the event of an accident, depending on the situation. Coverage only kicks in when the driver has the rideshare app turned on; when he or she does not have the app turned on, neither Uber nor Lyft offer any coverage. Instead, you will need to pursue compensation through the driver’s personal auto insurance policy, just like in any other car accident.

Generally speaking, Uber and Lyft offer the following coverage levels:

  • Up to $1 million per accident when the app is turned on and the driver has accepted a ride/has a passenger
  • Up to $50,000 per person or up to $100,000 per accident in bodily injury coverage when the app is on but the driver has not accepted a ride/does not have a passenger
  • Up to $30,000 in property damage coverage per accident when the app is turned on but the driver has not accepted a ride/does not have a passenger

It is also important to note that this coverage does not kick in until after the rideshare driver’s personal auto insurance liability coverage has been exhausted. It is in your best interests to speak to a knowledgeable Los Angeles Uber/Lyft accident attorney to learn more about the specific compensation you may be entitled to receive, depending on the unique factors and circumstances present in your case.
