Our Lyft & Uber Car Accident Lawyers in Los Angeles Can Navigate Insurance Liability

To their credit, both Uber and Lyft provide adequate coverage to injured passengers. However, matters get quite murky when it comes to accidents involving other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and so on. 

While both companies have expanded their coverage to include accidents incurred during a gap between rides, their policies come into effect only if a driver’s personal policy does not cover the accident. Many questions immediately come to mind:

  • What happens if the resulting damages of an accident exceed the driver’s coverage? Who or what fills this insurance gap? Does the victim have to turn to their own resources?
  • Isn’t personal policy coverage ineffective in cases where the liable driver was driving for commercial purposes? If this is the case, who covers the damages?

At Wilshire Law Firm, our knowledgeable Los Angeles rideshare accident attorneys stay on top of the latest developments in ride-sharing accident liability law.

Uber & Lyft Car Accident in Los Angeles: Uber’s Policy and Liability Insurance

  • Uber classifies its drivers as “independent contractors” and not employees in an attempt to deflect liability for any injuries sustained in a crash. However, passengers are covered by up to $1 million per ride in commercial liability insurance.
  • Unlike taxi cab companies, Uber defines itself as a technology provider, not a transportation company or car service, which, again, allows the company to deflect blame onto its drivers and makes it more difficult for accident victims to make complaints or claims with Uber.
  • Uber is notorious for being hard to reach by phone. Victims may be able to contact Uber customer service care or an Uber partner by e-mail or through their social media, but even those channels are known to be unreliable. Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to touch base with Uber and its drivers.
  • California law sets insurance coverage requirements for all Transportation TNCs, including Uber. The company now provides $50,000/$100,000/$25,000 of contingent coverage between trips. However, there remains the question of what happens when a driver has multiple ridesharing apps open at the same time.
  • Injured pedestrians, bicyclists, and other motorists are also entitled to substantial compensation. Victims who are not passengers can still recover from the driver’s insurance policy in addition to Uber’s excess policy.

Lawsuit Deadlines: Statute of Limitations in Los Angeles Rideshare Accidents

The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in California is two years. This means that if you are involved in a rideshare accident, you must file your injury claim within two years from the date of the incident, or else you may be barred from recovering damages. 

If you’ve lost a loved one in a fatal rideshare crash, a Los Angeles wrongful death lawsuit must also be filed within two years of the incident that caused the death. This two-year statute of limitations applies to all wrongful death cases related to rideshare accidents, such as those involving Uber and Lyft.

Do not let the statute of limitations expire. Call our Los Angeles rideshare accident law firm today to schedule your free case evaluation.
