“Who Can File an Uber Accident Claim or Lawsuit?”
An Uber accident can result in injuries to many different parties, each of which may have a case for an Uber accident claim or lawsuit.
Parties that may be eligible for an Uber or Lyft accident claim include:
- Uber or Lyft passengers
- Uber or Lyft drivers
- Another driver hit by a Lyft or Uber vehicle
- A passenger in a vehicle hit by a Lyft or Uber car
- A pedestrian injured in an Uber or Lyft accident
- A bicyclist injured in an Uber or Lyft accident
“What Compensation is Available in an Uber or Lyft Accident Claim?”
Depending on the facts and circumstances of the case, different insurance policies and coverages may apply if you’re seeking compensation for injuries suffered due to a Lyft or Uber accident. An experienced Greensboro Uber accident attorney can review the details of your claim and advise you on what insurance coverage may be available.
For instance, if the Uber or Lyft driver is “on the clock” (logged into the rideshare app and either picking up, transporting, or dropping off passengers), Uber or Lyft’s own liability insurance policy probably applies. Both companies carry liability insurance of $1 million.
If, however, the accident occurs while the driver is “off the clock,” his or her own auto insurance policy probably applies. Other vehicles’ insurance coverage may also apply, depending on the unique circumstances of the accident.
In cases in which a driver is not covered by insurance, or there is not enough insurance to cover the damages, your own uninsured / underinsured policy may be used to recover compensation.
Insurance claims related to Lyft and Uber accidents can be complicated, and we strongly encourage you to contact a Greensboro Uber accident lawyer to review your claim and advise you on your legal options for seeking compensation.
Statute of Limitations in Uber and Lyft Accident Claims
Like any personal injury case in North Carolina, Lyft and Uber accident claims are subject to the statute of limitations, which is the deadline for filing a claim. In most cases in North Carolina, you will need to file an Uber accident claim within 3 years of the date of injury, or 2 years of the date of death in a wrongful death case.
