How to File a Rideshare Accident Claim in California

If you are involved in a rideshare accident, there may be several liable parties. The rideshare company itself may be liable, depending on what the driver was doing at the time of the accident. If the rideshare driver is at fault, he/she may be liable. If a third party, such as another driver, caused the accident, that party may be liable for your injuries and other damages. As such, the amount of insurance coverage available to you will most likely depend on the specific circumstances of the accident.

By law, most rideshare companies (including Uber and Lyft) are liable for an accident if one of the following is true:

  • The rideshare driver had the app switched on and was carrying a passenger at the time of the accident
  • The rideshare driver had the app switched on, had accepted a ride, and was on the way to pick up a passenger at the time of the accident
  • The rideshare driver had the app switched on and was waiting for a passenger at the time of the accident

In both the first and second instance (when the driver had a passenger/had accepted a ride), both Uber and Lyft have up to $1 million in insurance coverage. When the driver has the app switched on but has not yet accepted a ride, Uber and Lyft’s coverage drops to $50,000 per individual or $100,000 per accident in bodily injury and $30,000 for property damage.

When the driver does not have the app switched on and is not waiting for a passenger at the time of an accident, injured victims can only recover compensation through the driver’s private automobile insurance coverage or the private insurance of an at-fault third party.
