From the time you accept an Uber trip to the time you exit the Uber vehicle, you are protected by a million dollars in commercial liability insurance, which includes a million dollars in uninsured motorists coverage in case the Uber driver gets into a car accident and PIP insurance. Uber calls this best-in-class coverage, and I have to agree. It is great that they protect their drivers and riders this way. According to its website, Lyft offers a similar million-dollar coverage plan.
Uber and Lyft also protect the drivers through this and provide $1 million in liability coverage while drivers are on a trip or en route to a passenger.
According to their website, Uber conducts a multi-state, federal, and county criminal background check on all of their drivers. Also, Uber claims to review their driver applicant’s driving records before they are approved in the Uber system and continue to monitor driving safety records on an ongoing basis.
But each accident is different, and there that coverage is limited. So if you are involved in a car crash involving Uber or Lyft, speak to an experienced car accident lawyer right away.
