Who Might be Responsible for an Uber and Lyft Accident

Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyer

California operates on a fault-based statute in car insurance cases. This means that the individual liable for the accident will also be financially responsible for the car accident and other damages incurred. Parties that could be held accountable include Uber or Lyft drivers, rideshare companies, and even third parties, such as road authorities or vehicle manufacturers. Nevertheless, as a rideshare passenger, it's unlikely that you're responsible for an auto accident.

At Doyle & O’Donnell Law Firm, our reliable and expert auto accident lawyer in Sacramento has expertise in handling the complexities of a Lyft and Uber injury claim. We comprehensively inspect the accident to identify at-fault parties and guarantee that our clients receive the maximum compensation for their losses.

I was injured in an automobile accident and I needed help navigating all the insurance companies and inquiries.  I hired Doyle and O'Donnell and it was the best thing I could have done.  They handled everything and fought to make sure I received everything I was entitled to receive.  It was a very pleasant experience and everyone in the office was super friendly.  I recommend them for your legal needs.

I was rear-ended and ended up with pain. I tried to go with the person's insurance company but they were a joke. I found this firm and they took my case. They fought for me against a company that was so awful to deal with. In the end, they won my case. They were great with answering questions and giving me information along the way.

I give Margaret 5 star on her services. She took our case when no one would. Other lawyers wanted the big accident cases only and we were turn away. I thought we had to fight the insurance ourselves until I called and talked to Margaret. She was wonderful, understanding and she instantly accepted our case. We sent information over email, and met once and signed documents and she and her team did the rest. A couple months later we get a settlement offer. It really saved me time and minimize stressed. I would highly recommend her law firm to those who have been in an auto accidents and felt their accident claims is not worth much.

On my way home from work on my bicycle I was hit in the bike lane by a neglectful driver. It seemed pretty straight forward when they admitted fault after launching me into oncoming traffic and causing injuries that they were to blame. Bring in the insurance companies somehow I was at fault? I didn't want to have to deal with the headache, but that's where Attorney Dan and Paralegal Guille came in. I followed there directions as they pursued compensation for my ER visits and post care. I got the treatment I needed while they fought to the end for what was right. On my end the whole process was easy as they dealt with the insurance company.  No one ever plans on getting injured but if it happens come to them if you're looking for GREAT COMPENSATION, headache free, correct care , and ones who will fight until you get what's rightfully yours. I can't thank them enough and will recommended them to many people as they were very professional and fair. Thank you for all your work you put into my case!

Got rear-ended. Dan O' Donnell told me exactly what to do - set up the chiropractor appointments for me - a couple months later, I got a few thousand bucks from the insurance company. If you get injured in a car accident that is not your fault, hit up Dan the Man!

Type of Insurance Uber/Lyft Drivers Have

Both Uber and Lyft drivers have insurance coverage provided by their respective rideshare companies. Here's a breakdown of the insurance coverage typically covered:

Situation 1 (Driver App Off)

When the driver isn't actively accepting rides through the app, their personal insurance coverage applies. However, most personal auto insurance policies exclude commercial activities such as ridesharing. In response to this coverage gap, Uber and Lyft offer contingent liability coverage during this time. This coverage typically includes liability for personal injury and property damage. But there might be limitations and exclusions.

Situation 2 (Driver App On, Ride Accepted, Passenger Pick-up, and Drop-off)

Once the driver has activated the ridesharing app and accepted a ride request, the additional coverage provided by Uber and Lyft starts. This policy usually includes liability coverage for personal injury and property damage, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, and contingent comprehensive and collision coverage for the driver's car.

Drivers can also increase the coverage provided by Uber and Lyft by purchasing additional ridesharing insurance coverage from their personal auto insurance provider. Hence, to get acquainted with your rights and learn more about the insurance claim process, speak with our knowledgeable personal injury attorney in Sacramento, specializing in Uber or Lyft car collisions.
