Uber and Lyft Drivers Must Carry Insurance to Pay for Accidents They Cause
If a Lyft or Uber driver’s negligent or careless actions caused your collision, they could owe you compensation for your losses. Just like all Florida motorists, rideshare drivers must carry liability insurance to pay for injuries and property damage they inflict.
According to CS/HB 221, when a rideshare driver logs into a rideshare app, they must have:
- $50,000 in bodily injury liability coverage for injuries caused to one person
- $100,000 in coverage for two or more people’s injuries
- $25,000 in property damage liability
When engaged in a prearranged ride, the mandatory coverage amount jumps to $1 million in liability for all injuries and property damage.
Both Uber and Lyft cover their drivers with policies that meet these requirements. When not logged into a rideshare app, drivers’ private auto insurance policies cover their accidents.
