Uber and Lyft Accident FAQs
How long does it take to reach a settlement for a rideshare accident?
A settlement for a rideshare accident with minor injuries may only take one or two months to settle. If you have significant injuries, it may take longer to completely identify your damages and negotiate fair compensation. However, every accident with a rideshare is different. It is best to talk to an attorney if you have been injured in an Uber or Lyft.
What insurance is there for an Uber or Lyft accident?
Insurance for an Uber or Lyft accident depends on the status of the driver at the time of the accident.
When the driver is actively engaged in giving a ride, insurance may cover up to $1 million in damages. There is a reduced amount while the app is active, and the driver is waiting for a ride.
What happens if my Uber crashes?
If your Uber crashes, report it to Uber right away. Get information for drivers, witnesses and others involved. The driver should report the crash to Uber, and they should also call the police. If the driver doesn’t call the police, call them yourself.
Does Lyft give you money when you’re in an accident?
Lyft promises up to $1 million in compensation for riders who are injured in an accident. However, they won’t just give you money. You must identify your damages, file a claim and negotiate your compensation. A lawyer can represent you.
Do I need an accident lawyer?
Even though Uber and Lyft advertise their large insurance guarantees, getting fair compensation when you’re hurt in an accident can be hard. Our Winter Haven injury lawyer can help you navigate the multiple insurance policies that may be involved, and how to negotiate a fair payment.
