Insurance in a Rideshare Accident
Two of the most popular rideshare companies in the country right now are Uber and Lyft. Both of these companies offer insurance to their drivers in the event of a collision. However, as we mentioned before, different elements of your case will influence your legal options.
For example, if you were struck by the driver of a rideshare company, and they had the app off and were not transporting passengers, you may be able to seek coverage under their personal insurance policy. However, if a rideshare driver had the app on, accepted a request, or was transporting passengers, you may be able to seek coverage under the rideshare company’s insurance coverage.

Coverage Offered Under Uber
Your Jacksonville ridesharing lawyer can review the details of the driver’s insurance policy to determine how Uber’s insurance coverage pertains to your case.
If you were injured by an Uber driver who was available but had not yet accepted a rideshare request, if your insurance coverage does not apply, third-party liability insurance covers:
- $50,000 in bodily injury per person
- $100,000 in bodily injury per accident
- $25,000 in property damage per accident
- If the Uber driver was en route to pick up a passenger or was currently fulfilling a request, coverage is as follows:
- $1,000,000 third-party liability insurance
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury insurance, which varies per state
- Contingent/comprehensive and collision, up to the cash value of the vehicle with a $1,000 deductible
A member of our legal team can explain in further detail what this means when you call 1-800-747-3733.
Coverage Offered Under Lyft
Like Uber, Lyft also provides insurance coverage to those involved in a car accident.
If the driver has the app on and no ride has been accepted, coverage is as follows:
- $50,000 maximum limit per person
- $100,000 maximum limit per accident
- $25,000 maximum limit for property damage
If the driver was en route to pick up a passenger or was actively driving someone, coverage is:
- $1,000,000 per accident in primary liability insurance
- Contingent/comprehensive and collision, up to the cash value of the vehicle (or repairs) with a $2,500 deductible
