Insurance in Lyft and Uber Accidents
Determining what insurance coverage may apply in an Uber or Lyft accident can be complicated. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, various insurance policies may cover damages, including:
- Lyft or Uber liability insurance
- The Lyft or Uber driver’s auto insurance
- Another vehicle’s auto insurance
An experienced Wilmington car accident lawyer handling Uber and Lyft accidents can help review your case and determine what insurance policy or policies may apply.
Both Uber and Lyft have liability policies with $1,000,000 in coverage. These policies typically only apply when a Lyft or Uber driver is “on the clock,” however, such as between the time the passenger is picked up and dropped off. In other cases, the driver’s own auto insurance may apply.
