Who’s at fault in an Uber accident?

If you were injured in a Lyft or Uber accident, determining who’s legally responsible hinges on a few different things. What “period” your Uber or Lyft driver was in when the crash occurred and whether or not you got hurt as a passenger in the car accident will impact whose insurance company you’ll have to deal with.

The different parties that may be held liable include:

  • The Uber or Lyft driver
  • Uber or Lyft
  • Other drivers involved in the accident

Insurance coverage differs, depending on what period the Uber or Lyft driver was in when the accident took place:

  • Driver is not logged into the ridesharing app: If the driver injures another person in an accident while they’re not logged into the ridesharing app, Uber and Lyft provide no coverage, and the driver may be held legally responsible for damages.
  • Driver is logged into the ridesharing app but has not yet accepted a ride request: In this case, Uber and Lyft offer coverage if their driver was responsible for injuring someone in a crash, including a per person bodily injury limit of $50,000, a per-accident limit of $100,000, and up to $25,000 for property damage liability. If another driver is at-fault, that driver’s insurance company may be responsible for coverage.
  • Driver is logged into the ridesharing app and has accepted a ride request: If the Uber or Lyft driver is on their way to pick up a passenger and injures someone in a crash, both ridesharing companies have $1 million in coverage that can kick in for bodily injury and other damages suffered by the victim.
  • Driver has accepted a ride request and has a passenger: Uber and Lyft provide liability coverage up to $1 million along with limited coverage for property damage and uninsured motorists.
