If you were injured in a rideshare accident involving Uber or Lyft because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to recover compensation for your losses. How you go about recovering damages, however, will depend on the facts of your case.
Rideshare companies have complicated relationships with their drivers, which can make it tough to figure out when you are covered by their commercial insurance. As major corporations that value profits more than people, rideshare companies also fight aggressively to avoid paying victims.

In motor vehicle accidents, victims injured by negligent or wrongful acts can bring personal injury claims to recover their damages. As in other injury cases, rideshare accident victims will need to prove a defendant’s fault and liability, usually by proving negligence.
This may involve proving that a defendant:
When personal injury claims are filed, insurance companies will represent their policyholders and ultimately pay out any final settlement or award to the victim. For an average car accident involving two private motorists, this means a victim is usually paid from the at-fault driver’s auto liability insurance.
Things are not as straightforward for rideshare accidents. That is because Uber and Lyft have a unique insurance coverage system that provides varying levels of coverage depending on whether a rideshare driver is actively using the app, carrying a passenger, or driving on their own time.
Uber and Lyft’s commercial insurance policy also includes uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage that can cover damages when at-fault motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough insurance, or when victims are injured in hit-and-run accidents.

I recently closed a case with the help of Drake and his wonderful law firm. Before I hired him I was dealing with an incompetent lawyer who wasn't fighting for the best outcome. Once I switched over to Drake and his law firm things changed for the best. His team practices great communication and answered all my questions quickly. I would highly recommend reaching out to him!

Made my horrible car accident ordeal less stressful. Got a broke ankle from the accident and they were able to come to my house to start everything. They have helped me since day one and I wouldn’t know what I would have done if they didn’t reach out and have all the information I needed. Would like to thank them for their hard work and great service.
