A Lyft or Uber accident presents unique legal issues. Under state law, these companies are required to provide commercial insurance for their drivers, who are considered independent contractors. Drivers are also required to carry their own insurance policies.
If you were in a Lyft or Uber accident, what can you do?
When there’s a car accident, determining which insurance policy or policies will cover your injuries can be confusing. It depends on:
- Whether the driver had the app on or off
- Did the driver have the app on and were they looking for passengers?
- Was the driver on the way to pick up a passenger?
- Did the driver have the app on and were they transporting a passenger?
A Lyft or Uber accident can leave you with serious injuries, including injuries to the head, neck or back. These are injuries that can affect your quality of life and require extensive medical treatment. Medical expenses can add up quickly, and you may be left unable to work. You wonder how you are going to pay your bills.
Insurance companies are supposed to help when you’ve been injured, but the insurance companies that represent drivers, Lyft and Uber all have the same goal – to make as much profit as possible. Paying out financial compensation after an accident impacts their bottom line, so they will try to pay you as little as they can.

Our legal team investigates your crash to determine which parties were responsible and which insurance companies are liable for your injuries.
