Determining fault in an Uber accident

You might not care who’s responsible for your injuries when you’ve been hurt in a Lyft or Uber accident, but figuring out who’s at fault is critical to your case. You need to know whose insurance company to contact and the different rules that apply for certain scenarios.

  1. An off-duty Uber driver injures someone in a car accident: In this situation, the Uber driver’s personal car insurance policy would be responsible for coverage and paying for your damages. If you have no-fault PIP on your policy, you can also file a claim with your insurance company, regardless of fault.
  2. Uber driver is on duty and waiting to accept a ride request: If a driver injures someone in an accident under these circumstances, both Lyft and Uber offer limited liability coverage for personal injury and property damage sustained by the victim. This policy has a per person bodily injury limit of $50,000, a per-accident limit of $100,000, and up to $25,000 for property damage.
  3. The Uber driver has accepted a ride request: Under this scenario, if the driver injures someone in an accident on their way to pick up a passenger, then both Lyft and Uber’s $1 million insurance policy can be triggered to pay for injuries and other damages suffered by the victim.
  4. The Uber driver has accepted a ride request and has a passenger: In this case, then both Uber and Lyft provide liability coverage up to $1 million along with limited coverage for uninsured/underinsured drivers and property damage.
