Do I need an Uber Accident Lawyer for an Uber or Lyft Accident?

An Uber accident lawyer is the same as a car accident lawyer. If you were injured because of an Uber or Lyft Accident in New York, you need a car accident lawyer in New York.

Who Is Responsible or at Fault for an Uber or Lyft Accident?

Proving who is at fault for an Uber or Lyft accident is like proving who is at fault for any other car accident.

The biggest difference between an Uber or Lyft accident and other car accidents is that Uber and Lyft cars have as much as $1,250,000 or more of insurance coverage to pay you for pain and suffering.

Why You Need the Uber Accident Lawyers at 1-800-HURT-911®

If the Uber driver is at fault for your accident, you need personal injury lawyers who know how to make Uber comply with court orders to turn over information about the car accident.

It has been alleged that Uber fails to provide information even when it was required by a court order. An Uber contractor whose job was to provide the information pursuant to subpoenas, search warrants, and court orders, claimed in a lawsuit that Uber violated federal law by systematically providing “as little information as possible”.

It’s really not surprising, because we have caught insurance companies lying about how much insurance there was to cover a car accident.

What if the Uber or Lyft Driver Didn’t Cause the Accident?

If your Uber or Lyft driver wasn’t at fault like when you’re hit in the rear it’s likely the car that caused your accident will not have enough insurance to pay for your injuries. But Uber and Lyft, have substantial uninsured and underinsured insurance coverage to pay you above what the other car has, so you will get the money you deserve.

Passenger Injured in Uber and Lyft Car

If you were injured while a passenger in an Uber or Lyft car, you can sue both the Uber or Lyft driver and the owner and driver of other cars that may also be involved in the accident.

You will have as much as $1,250,000 or more of insurance coverage to pay you for pain and suffering.

Passengers also have up to $50,000 available to pay for medical treatment and lost wages.

Do I need an Uber accident lawyer if I was a passenger injured in an Uber accident? You should have an experienced car accident lawyer in New York.

Car Hit by an Uber or Lyft

If you had a car accident with an Uber or Lyft car, there is at least $100,000 insurance but there may be a lot more!

If the Uber or Lyft car was logged into the Uber or Lyft app on the driver’s phone and had a passenger, there is as much as $1,250,000 or more of insurance coverage to pay you for pain and suffering.

You will also have up to $50,000 available to pay for your medical treatment, and lost wages.

How Much Insurance Do Uber or Lyft Drivers Have?

New York taxis are only insured for $100,000 but while working, Uber and Lyft drivers have far more insurance to pay you for your pain and suffering.

New York taxis are usually insured by American Transit Insurance, Hereford Insurance, or are self-insured with a bond. Even Uber and Lyft are covered for the first $100,000 with American Transit Insurance or Hereford Insurance.

American Transit Insurance building

Uber and Lyft cars are ride-sharing companies, not taxis, and when logged into the Uber or Lyft app they are insured for a lot more money than a taxi.

If you had an Uber or Lyft accident, we know how to find all the insurance money. We may even be able to get you much more than the insurance limits listed below.

Uber Insurance Coverage Amounts

Uber insurance coverage when the Uber driver is logged into the app with a passenger:

  • up to $1,250,000 liability insurance from Uber plus $100,000 from the Uber driver’s policy.
  • up to $1.25 million of supplementary uninsured, if injured in a hit and run accident, the other car has no insurance or is stolen.
  • up to $1.25 million of supplementary underinsured motorist bodily injury insurance per covered accident if the other car doesn’t have enough insurance to pay for your injury.
  • No-fault coverage (e.g., Personal Injury Protection) $50,000 to pay for medical-related expenses. See No-fault FAQ.

Lyft Insurance Coverage Amounts

Lyft insurance coverage when the Lyft driver is logged into the app with a passenger:

  • up to $1,000,000 liability insurance from Lyft plus $100,000 from the Lyft driver’s policy.
  • up to $1.25 million of supplementary uninsured, if injured in a hit and run accident, the other car has no insurance or is stolen.
  • up to $1.25 million of supplementary underinsured motorist bodily injury insurance per covered accident if the other car doesn’t have enough insurance to pay for your injury.
  • No-fault coverage (e.g., Personal Injury Protection) $50,000 to pay for medical-related expenses. See No-fault FAQ.

What Happens if the Only Car Involved Is an Uber or Lyft?

If you are an Uber or Lyft passenger injured in an accident that doesn’t involve another car or no other car has insurance, you will have insurance coverage through Uber or Lyft to pay you for your pain and suffering.

Uber or Lyft insurance also provides you with no-fault coverage which pays your hospital and medical bills, lost wages, and other benefits. See No-fault FAQ.

Will Uber or Lyft Pay for Medical Expenses Including an MRI?

Yes. If you have been injured in an Uber accident or a Lyft accident or even injured while getting in or getting out of an Uber, or getting in or getting out of a Lyft, your medical expenses are covered by No-Fault insurance from Uber or Lyft.

Uber and Lyft have no-fault insurance that will pay for medical expenses including MRIs and related bills such as transportation to a doctor’s office. You can even take another Uber or Lyft to the doctor! See No-fault FAQ.

Tool to Read the Correct Time in Uber App Data Reports

A common way that Uber can try to defend a personal injury lawsuit against them in a hit-and-run accident is to prove that the car involved in the hit-and-run accident wasn’t an Uber. Uber will provide a copy of the Uber App Data Report to show that the Uber car was nowhere near the accident at the time of the accident.

The Uber App Data Report shows time in UTC which is Coordinated Universal Time. Additionally, the Uber App report shows time on a 24-hour clock. To read the App report, you need to convert UTC to New York time (Eastern time) or your time wherever you are. This is a useful calculator tool to convert UTC to New York time which shows time in both 12 and 24 hours.

What Should I Do if I Was in an Uber or Lyft Accident?

If you were in an Uber or Lyft accident, you may not be limited by the $1,250,000 liability insurance policy. Call the HURT-911® Uber accident lawyers in New York for a free consultation.
