What happens if you are injured during a Lyft or Uber ride? Do you have a case for financial recovery due to your personal injury? If you are a passenger of a ride-sharing service such as Lyft or Uber you will always have a personal injury claim if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident.
The source of financial recovery for personal injury in Kentucky is primarily the insurance coverage of the responsible driver. In cases of hit and run, or when the responsible driver(s) are uninsured or have minimal coverage, the injured parties own UM/UIM insurance coverage is another source of recovery. If you are injured during a Lyft or Uber ride the driver is required to be covered by a substantial insurance policy. The companies themselves provide extensive insurance coverage for a passenger who hires a ride-sharing service.
This insurance also extends $100,000 of coverage to those who are injured by a Lyft or Uber driver who is between fares, but has their driver’s app open. These cases can be legally quite complex and it is important to work with experienced personal injury attorneys who have the skill and resources to stand up to these powerful companies and their insurance representatives.
