Depending on the circumstances of your accident, either the rideshare company or the driver of the other vehicle. Uber and Lyft both fully insure passengers from the start to finish of their rides, so you should be covered no matter what. However, it may be determined that your rideshare driver’s personal insurance is responsible for your losses. It really all depends. Rideshare accidents are some of the most complicated personal injury claims and should only be handled by an experienced attorney like you’ll find by hiring a rideshare accident lawyer with The Advocates.
In order to drive for Uber or Lyft you must have your own personal insurance. However, as soon as you turn on the rideshare app in order to pickup riders you are no longer covered by your personal insurance. While ferrying riders for Uber or Lyft you are covered by their insurance policies and are subject to their various phases of coverage. Unfortunately, depending on what phase you are in, there are gaps to coverage. In the case of Uber, phase 1, the sign-in phase, has the least amount of coverage. You do not want to get in an accident during this phase. Trust us. For more detailed information about your rideshare companies insurance policies seek out your company representative.
Just as no two people are the same, neither are no two rideshare accidents. Thanks to the complex insurance policies and coverages involved, rideshare accidents are especially difficult to put an estimate to.

The Advocates Rideshare Accident Claim Process

Step 1: Investigate the Accident

The first steps The Advocates will take is to investigate your accident. Our attorneys do this by obtaining a police report about your accident, examining any photos or videos of the crash scene, and speaking to any relevant witnesses. Once we have established liability, we will begin to build your injury claim.

Step 2: Build Your Claim

Building your car accident injury claim is one of the most time-consuming steps in the entire process. Our staff must wait until you are finished treatment for your injuries before we can compile a comprehensive medical record of the injuries you have suffered from your accident. This is a timely process so be patient.

Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement

Once you are finished treating your injuries and your medical records have been gathered, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance. Afterwards, negotiations with your attorney will begin. If we are unable to negotiate a fair offer, then you will have the option to file a lawsuit.

Step 4: Litigate If Necessary

Time wise, litigation is the longest step in the claim process, possibly extending the life of your claim one or, even, two years. If you do decide to file a lawsuit, be prepared to potentially appear before a judge and jury.
