Experienced & Skilled Legal Counsel

Now more popular than ever, Uber and Lyft are ridesharing apps for those seeking a convenient, stress-free, and inexpensive form of transportation. However, when involved in a car accident while in an Uber or Lyft, you may be wondering how insurance companies will cover the costs of your injuries or damages, as these companies are still relatively new. Our Savannah car accident attorneys of Brooks Law Office understand you may be confused about the prospect of compensation following this kind of accident, which is why we seek to resolve any and all of your concerns thanks to our relentless dedication to delivering you the most successful results possible.

As a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, the insurance company will likely deny your claim once they learn you were in a ridesharing vehicle. However, you can rest assured as Uber and Lyft both carry liability policies covering up to $1 million in damages.

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.
