Does Uber compensate for accidents?
Yes, Uber compensates for accidents. The amount that they may cover depends on the status of the driver at the time of the accident:
• If the driver is not logged into their rideshare app = no coverage
• When the driver is logged in but has not accepted a ride = coverage up to $50,000 per person, $100,000 total for injury liability, $25,000 for property damage
• During an active trip, from pickup through exiting the vehicle = coverage up to $1 million
These are the basic Uber insurance coverage amounts, but there are a few caveats. First, the driver’s individual insurance is primary in some circumstances. For that reason, the injured victim must carefully gather insurance information to make the claims on the correct policies. In addition, uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage may be important if the accident is the other driver’s fault.
Does Lyft compensate for accidents?
Yes, Lyft compensates for accidents. Lyft offers up to one million in coverage for accidents. This coverage is a welcome relief for drivers and even others are on the road who find themselves in an accident involving the rideshare service. The insurance may apply if the driver is at fault or if the other driver doesn’t have sufficient insurance coverage for their own accident liability.
How much is the average value of an Uber/Lyft accident settlement in Milwaukee?
The average value of an Uber/Lyft accident settlement in Milwaukee is $30,000. However, an Uber/Lyft accident claim can be as high as $1 million or more. The insurance policies in place from the rideshare companies can provide financial relief for individuals who can access these policies to receive fair compensation for their losses.
Wisconsin is an at-fault state, so don’t be fooled by a typical accident settlement amount. Even victims of minor car accidents deserve to have fair compensation. A fender bender may settle for only a few thousand dollars, but an individual with severe injuries may settle their claim for much more. An attorney for Uber/Lyft rideshare accidents can help you understand what to expect in your individual claim.
What should I do if I’m in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle?
If you’re in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle, you should:
• Move to immediate safety
• Call 911
• Provide medical care to anyone injured to the extent that you are able
• Exchange information with everyone involved – in particular, gather identification information, license plates, and physical addresses for all drivers involved
• Get insurance company information from all drivers
• Get contact information from witnesses
• Report the accident to the rideshare company
You can report an Uber accident online and report a Lyft accident online.
