ENCINO RIDESHARE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Handling Complex Uber & Lyft Claims
Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft make quick trips around the city, to the airport, and tourist destinations easier than driving to and from on your own. Using a rideshare company requires no maps, no parking, and the ease of at-your-door pick up and drop off. It’s a win/win, right?
The bigger question becomes, what happens if you are hurt in an accident while using these popular and convenient services?

What Type Of Insurance Coverage Does An Uber Or Lyft Driver Carry?
Uber and Lyft drivers are both covered by their respective company’s insurance policies during designated parts of their trips. Beginning in 2017, Uber and Lyft were required to maintain auto insurance for personal injury protection while their drivers are logged on to their digital networks. The insurance coverage must apply even when the driver is not engaged in a prearranged ride.
In the State of California, Uber and Lyft insurance coverage apply as follows:
Driver is offline, or the Uber or Lyft app is off:
- Personal insurance company and coverages apply
Driver is available or waiting for a ride request:
- $25,000 in property damage per accident
- $50,000 in bodily injury per person
- $100,000 in bodily injury per accident
Driver is on the way to pick up riders and during all trips:
- $1,000,000 third‑party liability
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury
- Contingent comprehensive and collision
- Up to actual cash value of the vehicle, minus a $1,000 deductible
When the driver is operating their vehicle on behalf of the rideshare company — no matter which brand he or she is working under — the rideshare company is responsible for their coverage. That means pursuing the corporate giant is going to be much more difficult to do on your own.
Our attorneys can help. Recovering the financial damages you deserve is our passion, and our experience produces results.
