Who Pays for a Rideshare Accident?

You might be able to get compensation from the rideshare company that was paying the rideshare driver when the accident occurred. Both Uber and Lyft carry substantial insurance policies that can pay for damages and help people recover, so the companies can save their reputations. Not everyone injured by a rideshare driver can access these insurance policies, though. It depends on when the accident took place and what the rideshare driver was doing.

Uber’s insurance policy – which is strikingly similar to Lyft’s – is sorted into three stages:

  • First: In the first stage, the Uber driver does not have their app turned on or is marked as unavailable. Uber won’t pay anything for an accident that happens at this stage. Injured parties will have to pursue a claim filed against the driver’s personally purchased auto insurance policy.
  • Second: In the second stage, the Uber driver is using the app and is actively looking for a fare. If a crash happens, then Uber can offer a 50/100/25 policy, but only if the driver’s insurance won’t apply.
  • Third: In the third stage, the Uber driver has a passenger or has accepted a fare and is on the way to pick them up. Uber has a large $1,000,000 third-party liability policy during this stage that can help cover damages experienced by everyone involved. The third stage of coverage also has uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance and contingent comprehensive and collision coverage.
