Insurance Coverage & Rideshare Crashes

When you are injured because of someone else’s negligence or misconduct, you are entitled to a financial recovery of your damages. This can include compensation for things like:

  • Hospital bills and medical expenses
  • Chiropractic care and rehabilitation
  • Future medical needs
  • Lost income and future earnings
  • Pain and suffering

In auto accident lawsuits, victims usually bring claims against defendants they allege to be at fault. If these defendants carry auto insurance, which they are required to carry under California law, their insurance carrier will represent them in the personal injury claim process and pay any final settlement or judgment to the victim up to the limits of the policy.

For Uber and Lyft accidents, the good news is that rideshare services have large $1 million commercial insurance policies and deep pockets to pay victims who suffer serious injuries and extensive damages. On the other hand, rideshare drivers are not always covered by such policies. Insurance coverage will vary depending on a driver’s status at the time of a crash.

  1. Drivers “off the clock” - Drivers who also use their rideshare vehicles for personal use are not covered by Uber or Lyft policies when they have their apps off. Instead, they are covered by their own personal auto liability insurance, which can have varying policy limits.
  2. Drivers with apps on - Drivers who have their apps on and are in between rides are covered by limited third-party insurance coverage. This is typically $50k/$100k/$25k coverage.
  3. Drivers picking up or transporting passengers - Drivers who are pickup up or transporting passengers are covered by a $1 million commercial insurance policy, which includes UM / UIM coverage for victims hurt by uninsured or underinsured motorists. If you were a rideshare passenger or were injured by a rideshare driver who was carrying or pickup up a passenger at the time, you should be covered by this commercial policy.

Determining how insurance works in only half the battle. As a victim, you will need to prove fault and liability, and work aggressively against insurance company efforts to dispute or minimize your claim. 

At Drake Law Firm, our attorneys have decades of experience fighting back against insurance companies, as well as extensive insight from beginning their careers in defense work. We know the “other side” and use that to help clients fight for the largest possible recovery.
