Who Will Be Held Liable in My Ride-Sharing Accident?

In all personal injury cases, the party filing the claim must prove that the other party was at fault. You will want a lawyer to investigate and help prove that the other party should be held responsible for your injuries.

Ride-sharing companies typically require their contracted drivers to have personal car insurance. Personal car insurance must meet or exceed the minimum insurance requirement for Indiana motorists. If their personal insurer or their plan does not provide coverage for ride-sharing-related accidents, then the ride-sharing company’s insurance may be held liable.

Uber and Lyft provide their contracted drivers with liability insurance coverage that varies depending on the driver’s circumstances:

  • If the driver is not logged into the app then no coverage will be provided by either Uber or Lyft.
  • If the driver logged into the app but has not officially accepted the ride request, Uber or Lyft will provide them with liability coverage. Coverage is extended if the driver is at-fault for the accident. The coverage consists of up to $50,000 per person and $100,000 total liability per accident in addition to $25,000 for property damage.
  • If the driver is logged into the app, has accepted the ride, and is at fault for the accident, then Uber or Lyft will provide liability coverage of up to $1 million.

Consult with the experienced Indianapolis rideshare accident lawyers at Hovde Dassow + Deets to seek full and fair compensation for your injuries.

    Nick Deets is an Indiana Super Lawyer for a reason... Nick is a great family friend but when dealing with legal matters you still want to get the maximum outcome, regardless of personal relationships and I was VERY pleasantly surprised with the result of my case. The firm's personnel and Nick are prompt with urgent matters, conduct business in an honest way, and the bottom line is they get the job done. I highly recommend him for any legal matter in their wheelhouse and if that isn't enough research their awards, it speaks for itself.
