Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft are extremely popular, but the challenges passengers may face after an accident in a rideshare car are complex. If you've been in an accident while riding in an Uber or Lyft car in Arizona, it's important to understand the challenges you may face and the options available to you.
First and foremost, it's important to know that Uber and Lyft provide insurance coverage for their drivers. However, the specifics of that coverage can vary depending on the facts surrounding the car accident you are in. If you sense that the insurer is giving you any pushback on your claim, you absolutely should call The Dr. Lawyer Law Group.
If another car hits your Uber or Lyft vehicle and the other driver is at fault and insured, the other driver’s insurance company should cover all damages. However, your case may become very complicated if fault is unclear or the other driver is uninsured. In such cases, you may need to rely on the insurance coverage provided by Uber or Lyft.
When an Uber driver is en route to pick you up or is driving you, Uber provides a $1 million insurance policy covering passengers in an accident. However, the policy terms can be complex and difficult to navigate. That's why working with an experienced personal injury attorney like the Dr. Lawyer is important if you've been injured in an accident while riding in an Uber. Our Phoenix personal injury firm is familiar with the nuances of Uber and Lyft insurance policies and will work diligently to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Additionally, it's worth noting that the Uber or Lyft driver's personal car insurance policy is unlikely to cover your injuries, even if the Uber or Lyft driver was at fault for the car accident. This is because many standard personal automobile insurance policies exclude Uber and Lyft drivers when using their vehicles for work. However, the Uber or Lyft driver may have opted into additional coverage through their personal auto insurance, which may open up further avenues of recovery for your car crash injuries.
With so many insurance questions at play, your best bet is to hire The Dr. Lawyer Law Group when you are in an Uber car accident or Lyft car crash in Arizona. Our personal injury law firm can help you navigate the complex legal landscape surrounding Uber and Lyft accidents in Phoenix and throughout the state. With the right guidance and representation, you can ensure that your legal rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages.
