If you you a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft and you are involved in a car accident, you may wonder who is at fault, who is liable, and what to do next. Much like other car wrecks, liability in a Lyft or Uber accident is entirely dependent on which driver caused the accident, it could be the Lyft driver or the other vehicle involved in the wreck.
If you are a passenger in a Lyft vehicle, even if your Lyft driver is responsible for the accident, you are not. You can make a claim against the driver’s Lyft insurance coverage. Of course, if your Lyft driver is not at-fault for the accident, you would pursue a claim against the other driver’s insurance coverage.
