How Uber and Lyft Insurance Coverage Works

Uber and Lyft have structured their insurance policies to provide coverage that changes based on the driver’s status at the time of an accident. Understanding how this works is important for anyone involved in a car accident with a rideshare service, whether as the rideshare driver, a passenger, or the driver of another car.

When The Rideshare Driver Has The App Off

If a rideshare driver is not logged into the Uber or Lyft app to look for riders, any accidents they’re involved in will typically be covered under their personal auto insurance policy.

When the App is Open but no Passengers

If a rideshare driver is online and waiting to accept trips, Uber and Lyft both provide third-party liability insurance. This coverage protects against the costs related to injuries or property damage affecting others if the driver doesn’t have enough personal coverage.

During Rideshare Trips

Once a driver accepts a trip and until its conclusion, both Uber and Lyft take their insurance coverage further. In such cases, they maintain third-party liability insurance coverage of at least $1,000,000 per incident for property damage or injury claims arising from accidents where rideshare drivers are liable.

Navigating these varying levels of coverage often poses a challenge without in-depth legal and insurance knowledge. In the event of an accident that occurs while being transported by a ridesharing service, or if you’re otherwise involved with one as a third party, contact Brumley Law Firm as soon as possible.
