Liability Coverage in Uber or Lyft Accidents

The first thing you should understand is that Uber and Lyft share a liability coverage system. This means that when someone is hurt in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver who was logged into the ridesharing app, the ridesharing companies will provide them with a given amount of compensation, depending on what “period” the accident occurred. Uber and Lyft’s liability coverage is as follows:

  • Period 0: When an Uber or Lyft driver is not yet logged into the ridesharing app and causes an accident with anoother driver. When this happens, the injured driver will not be able to receive any coverage from Uber/Lyft’s insurance policy and will instead have to seek compensation from the driver’s personal insurance company.
  • Period 1: Period 1 is when an Uber or Lyft driver is logged into the app but has not yet accepted a ride and causes an accident. If the driver causes an accident at this point, Uber or Lyft will provide the injured parties with up to $50,000 per person, $25,000 in property damage liability, and $100,000 in total injury liability.
  • Period 2-3: When someone is injured during Period 2 or 3, Uber or Lyft will provide liability coverage of up to $1 million. Period 2 is when the rideshare driver has accepted a ride and is en route to pick up the passenger, while Period 3 is when the rideshare driver has picked up the passenger and is en route to their destination.

No matter the stage during which you were injured, it’s always in your best interests to promptly hire a San Antonio Uber/Lyft accident lawyer who can help you fight for the maximum compensation on your behalf.
