What Happens If Your Uber/Lyft Driver Gets In An Accident?

Across New York City and all over the country, ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft are growing more prevalent every day. While they provide great flexibility and more options for passengers, they also create new hazards. For example, what happens if your ride-share driver is involved in an accident with you in the car? What if you become injured?

Who Will Pay Your Medical Bills?

Uber and Lyft both provide insurance to their drivers, but often only as a supplement to the driver's own insurance policy. If you were hurt because of a driver's negligence, the insurance company for your driver or another motorist should cover your medical bills.

Too often, however, insurers try to deny or delay payment of valid auto accident claims. If you have any trouble getting your medical bills paid, do not stop treatment. It is critical that you keep going to the doctor to prove that you are still injured. Speak to an attorney as soon as possible to learn how to pursue the compensation you need from the responsible party.
