Uber and Lyft are ridesharing applications that match you with drivers who will pick you up in their personal vehicles and transport you to your destination. There are generally two types of accidents where an Uber or Lyft driver may be held liable. The first type of accident involves instances where an Uber or Lyft driver causes an automobile accident inuring the patrons of another vehicle. The second type of accident involves instances where the Uber or Lyft driver causes an accident which results in injuries to the passengers of the Uber or Lyft. It is important to note that the Uber or Lyft application must be “on” at the time of the accident.
An Uber/Lyft drivers’ personal automobile insurance policy does not cover them or their passengers in an accident.
