Who Is Liable in an Uber or Lyft Accident?
In California, Uber and Lyft must carry a minimum of $1 million in insurance to cover death, personal injury, and property damage caused by their drivers. This insurance is effective from the time a driver accepts a user’s ride request to the time the driver has completed the ride.
Uber and Lyft drivers are also responsible for having personal insurance for their vehicles, although this may not always extend to their ride-sharing passengers. In any case, a skilled attorney can employ the appropriate measures to establish liability and recover the damages you are entitled to after an accident.
What Damages Can You Recover from an Uber or Lyft Accident?
Regardless of whether the company or the driver is found liable for the accident, you are entitled to all damages sustained, including:
- Injury or injuries requiring medical expenses
- Loss of future income from being unable to work
- Emotional distress
