What If I Was the Driver, Not the Passenger?
At the same time, the other side of the spectrum should be considered, too. Sometimes, it's not the driver who was being negligent, but the passenger. It's not uncommon for drivers to deal with belligerent passengers. Sure, it may be the alcohol that's influencing their irresponsible behavior, but that's no excuse. If you were acting as a safe and responsible driver and it was the passenger who caused the accident, we've got you covered.
Then again, maybe neither the driver nor the passenger was to blame. Perhaps it was another driver in a different car that caused the accident and consequent injuries. No need to worry — we fight cases like this, too.
Do Uber and Lyft provide any insurance coverage?
Rideshare companies are governed by a completely different set of laws than everyday drivers and have separate standards to adhere to. However, both Uber and Lyft provide insurance coverage for their drivers and passengers. In the event of an accident, what happens next depends on whoever is determined to be at fault.
If Uber or Lyft is at fault, then they have liability insurance to cover the driver and passenger. If they aren't at fault, uninsured and underinsured insurance is available to protect the passenger and driver.
