If you were another driver on the road who was injured in an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver, you must realize these companies consider their drivers independent contractors as opposed to employees, which means they are expected to cover their own insurance. If the driver is uninsured, you should proceed with the aftermath of an accident as per usual: take photographic evidence, exchange information, don’t apologize, etc.
If the driver was not transporting anyone during the time of the accident, their personal insurance will take care of as much as possible, while the company’s insurance will come in to take care of what’s remaining. As you can imagine, each situation is dependent on the specific details of the event at hand, which is why you will need to schedule an initial consultation with a member of our legal team to get the answer you are seeking.
