What should you do if you are injured during an Uber or Lyft ride share? Do you have a personal injury case? If you are a passenger of a ride-sharing service such as Uber or Lyft you will always have a personal injury claim if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident.
The primary source of financial recovery for personal injury in California is the insurance coverage of the responsible driver. In cases of hit and run, or when the responsible driver(s) are uninsured or have minimal coverage, the injured parties own UM/UIM insurance coverage is another source of recovery. If you are injured during an Uber or Lyft ride the driver is required to be covered by a substantial insurance policy. The companies themselves provide extensive insurance coverage for a passenger who hires a ride-sharing service.
This insurance also extends $100,000 of coverage to those who are injured by an Uber or Lyft driver who may be between fares, but has their driver’s app open. These cases can be legally quite complex and it is important to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who has the skill and resources to stand up to these powerful companies and their insurance representatives.
