Dublin Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyer
Many Ohio residents rely on rideshare services, including Uber and Lyft, for transportation in a wide range of circumstances. In theory, Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare services should help to reduce overall traffic collision rates, especially those caused by drunk driving, since they can help to limit the likelihood that a motorist will get behind the wheel if they are intoxicated or too tired to drive. However, Uber and Lyft drivers can make mistakes while driving and can be responsible for collisions resulting from their negligence. Depending upon the specific circumstances of the case, you may be eligible to seek compensation through an Uber or Lyft insurance policy that may cover up to $1 million in losses. An attorney can evaluate your case and provide you with more information. Contact our experienced Dublin Uber & Lyft accidents lawyer today.
Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents Involving Uber and Lyft Drivers in Dublin
Rideshare accidents are often caused by driver negligence, including the error of the Uber or Lyft driver, or the error of another motorist. Common causes for crashes include:
- Distracted driving;
- Drowsy driving;
- Drunk driving;
- Drugged driving; and
- Aggressive driving.
How Uber and Lyft Insurance Policies Work in Dublin
Depending upon whether a rideshare driver has accepted a ride or is transporting a passenger, a person who is injured in an Uber or Lyft accident may be eligible to seek compensation through a $1 million Uber or Lyft insurance policy. The availability of Uber or Lyft insurance coverage ultimately will depend upon the status of the rideshare driver. Insurance in an Uber or Lyft accident has three parts:
- When an Uber or Lyft driver is using their vehicle for personal purposes and is not working for Uber or Lyft at the time of the accident, then the driver’s personal insurance policy will be all that applies;
- When an Uber or Lyft driver is working (and is available to pick up a passenger) but has not yet accepted a ride or does not have a passenger in the vehicle, Uber or Lyft may provide additional liability insurance beyond what the driver’s personal insurance covers, including up to $100,000 in bodily injury liability per accident;
- When an Uber or Lyft driver has accepted a ride and has a passenger in their vehicle, Uber and Lyft have a $1 million liability insurance policy that can apply in the event of an accident.
Even when another motorist is at fault for the crash, if you were riding in an Uber or Lyft vehicle and injured, the Uber or Lyft $1 million policy may be able to provide coverage for you.
