Uber & Lyft’s Liability Coverage

The coverage Uber/Lyft will provide after an accident will depend on several factors, such as the status of the driver at the time of the accident (whether they were logged into the app, waiting for a ride request, or carrying a passenger), the type and amount of insurance coverage that the driver and the rideshare company have, and the fault of the driver and other parties involved in the accident.
