Uber & Lyft Accident Attorneys

Taking a Stand for Justice, No Matter What

The popularity of rideshare services has exploded in recent years. But as the number of Uber and Lyft rides has risen, so has the number of rideshare accidents. According to research conducted by the University of Chicago, ridesharing has caused a three percent uptick in fatal motor vehicle accidents since 2010.     

Though any automobile accident can cause life-altering injuries and even death, Uber and Lyft accident claims tend to be more complicated. That’s because the rideshare company may be liable, even if the driver caused the car or truck accident. To navigate these intricacies, you need an experienced Uber and Lyft accident attorney by your side. At Breit Biniazan, we can help you fight for the fair recovery you are owed.

How Uber & Lyft Insurance Coverage Works

Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft provide drivers with commercial insurance coverage—typically with a $1 million limit—while the driver is on the clock. However, whether or not the company is financially liable for damages resulting from an accident depends on certain circumstances. 

More specifically, the rideshare company may be responsible for damages if the driver is working and the rideshare app is on but they’re waiting for a customer. In this situation, both Uber and Lyft provide a 50/100/25 liability policy. 

A 50/100/25 liability policy means there’s a:

  • Maximum of $50,000 bodily injury liability per person 
  • Maximum of $100,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • Maximum of $25,000 property damage liability per accident

If the driver is driving to pick up a customer or has a customer in the car, Uber and Lyft provide a $1 million liability policy. However, if the rideshare app is off and the driver causes bodily harm, the driver is liable. Their personal insurance would pay for these damages.
