Helping Clients Get the Compensation They Deserve
The Denver Trial Lawyers take on all cases related to rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft. From accident cases to personal injury cases, we can help you obtain financial compensation for your damages.
Accidents involving Uber or Lyft drivers are more complex and complicated than the average car accident. Because Lyft and Uber use independent contractors, these companies often attempt to avoid liability for a person’s injury or damages that was caused by one of their drivers.
Our lawyers have dealt with numerous cases involving Lyft and Uber drivers and we are familiar with the insurance policies and employment practices that these companies to try use to limit or outright deny an accident or injury claim. If you have been in an accident with or injured by a rideshare driver, you will want the skills and experience that our lawyers bring to the table. We will do all that we can to make sure that Lyft or Uber are held accountable for your distress.
Uber & Lyft Driver Coverage
Both Uber and Lyft have liability coverage for their drivers. Whether the rideshare company coverage will apply to your case depends on the situation of your accident or injury.
From the time a driver is paired with a passenger in the app, to the time that passenger is dropped off at their destination, there is liability coverage of $1,000,000 per accident. This means that when an Uber or Lyft driver causes an accident there is $1,000,000 to cover all injured individuals, including the Uber and Lyft passengers.
There is also $1,000,000 in coverage for accidents involving uninsured and underinsured motorists. This means that if you are involved in an accident while you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft that is caused by another motorist that either: (A) does not have insurance (uninsured); or (B) does not have adequate insurance to cover your damages and losses (underinsured), the Uber and Lyft policy will provide coverage up to $1,000,000 per accident.
If you are injured as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft there will always be at least $1,000,000 in coverage per accident, regardless of whether your driver was at fault. If you are injured in an accident caused by an Uber or Lyft and you are not a passenger there will be $1,000,000 in coverage, so long as the driver has been paired with a passenger in the application or has a passenger in their car.
