Ridesharing and carpool services like Uber and Lyft have exploded in recent
years, to the point that you can usually spot several ridesharing drivers
on your daily commute to work. By replacing conventional transportation
methods, however, Uber and Lyft have also paved the way forcar accident claims to become even more complex, by introducing multiple new parties for liability.

In this post, we’ll discuss how liability applies in Uber and Lyft
claims, and how you can pursue compensation.
What Will Uber Cover?
Because companies like Uber and Lyft are extremely wary of lawsuits, they
have both implemented a company-wide insurance policy to cover all of
their employees. Offering up to $1 million per accident with $50,000 for
each person who is injured. Of course, that’s only true if the driver
was actually working at the time of your accident, and if you can prove
How Do I Know What is Fair?
It’s often difficult to tell exactly how much compensation you will
need after an accident, which is one of the reasons you should consider
talking to an experienced attorney as soon as you are able. When you agree
to a low settlement offer from an insurance company or fail to take civil
legal action in the appropriate timeframe, you could lose the chance to
fully pursue your claim. This is especially true with Uber and Lyft claims,
where multiple parties and multiple insurers could be involved all at once.
