When you choose to ride with Uber or Lyft, you trust that the journey will be safe and trouble-free. However, if you find yourself involved in an accident during a ride, it’s important to know your rights as a passenger. Some key points include:
- Driver’s Insurance: Both Uber and Lyft provide insurance coverage for their drivers and passengers in the event of an accident during the ride. This coverage may include medical expenses and property damage.
- Driver’s Liability: If the accident was caused by the driver’s negligence, you may have the right to file a claim against the responsible driver’s insurance policy.
- Legal Actions: In cases of serious injuries, you may have the option to take legal action to seek compensation for damages.
Steps to Take After an Accident:
- Safety First: Prioritize your safety and that of others involved. Seek medical attention if necessary.
- Report the Accident: Notify the rideshare company about the accident as soon as possible.
