Have you been injured in an accident as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft? Did a rideshare company’s driver hit you? If so, you may be entitled to financial compensation. 

Rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft are becoming increasingly popular for tourists and residents alike. Whether you don’t have access to a vehicle or are using a rideshare to avoid the cost and trouble of renting a car, rideshares are an attractive option when you need transportation. However, just like any other driver, rideshare drivers can cause car accidents in Orange County.

When you have been involved in an accident involving a rideshare, you may be confused and unsure of your next steps. Fortunately, a rideshare accident lawyer at Kohan & Bablove, Injury Attorneys may be able to provide the clarity you need. If we take on your case, we’ll do everything possible to ensure these rideshare companies are held accountable for their negligent drivers.

Rideshare Companies and Insurance Policies

Rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft carry auto insurance policies with $1 million coverage limits. These are designed to protect injury victims who are involved in an accident with an affiliated driver. The rideshare driver is also required to carry their own auto insurance policy to protect both themselves and their vehicle when they are not actively driving for the rideshare company.

But, in order for the rideshare company’s insurance policy to pay out on a claim, the Orange County accident will need to include one of the following factors:

  • The driver was in driver mode.
  • The driver was traveling to pick up a passenger.
  • The driver was transporting a passenger.

If the driver was not waiting to pick up a passenger, in driver mode, or actively transporting a passenger, the rideshare company’s auto insurance will not apply. In these cases, the driver’s insurance will take effect. This matters because the rideshare driver’s auto insurance policy will almost always provide less coverage than the rideshare company.

Losses You Could Recover After a Rideshare Accident

Obtaining compensation through the insurance company means that only certain losses are recoverable, such as property damage, medical expenses, and, in some cases, lost wages.

But, in order to be compensated for your pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, emotional distress, and other non-economic damages, you should prepare to bring your case to civil court so you can maximize your injury settlement.
