Why You Need a Henderson Uber/Lyft Injury Lawyer

If you or a loved one has serious injuries from the negligence of an Uber or Lyft driver, hire an attorney to help you protect your rights. Without legal representation, the rideshare company’s insurance provider may try to take advantage of you or engage in bad faith practices. A lawyer can stand up for your rights as an injured passenger or another victim during settlement negotiations or an injury trial. If your case goes to court, your Lyft and Uber lawyer can use aggressive litigation strategies to fight for the best possible results.

Your Rights After an Uber or Lyft Accident In Henderson

Nevada uses fault-based insurance laws to resolve car accident claims. Under a fault-based system, the at-fault party will be financially responsible for causing victims’ injuries and damages. Cases involving transportation companies such as Uber and Lyft are different. Rather than only having the right to file a claim against the at-fault driver, you may have the right to hold the company liable. Both Uber and Lyft have $1 million insurance policies they split into three different periods.

  1. Period I. The driver logged into the Uber or Lyft app and is waiting for a ride request. Both companies offer $50,000 in bodily injury liability insurance per person, $100,000 per accident and $25,000 in property damage liability during Period I.
  2. Period II. The driver accepted a ride and is en route to pick up the rider. Uber and Lyft’s full $1 million policies cover damages drivers cause in Period II.
  3. Period III. The driver has paying riders in his or her vehicle and is on the way to the destination. The rideshare company’s full insurance policy is in effect in Period III.

If the Uber or Lyft driver was not in any of these periods, your claim will look like a typical car accident case. The driver’s personal policy will cover your damages. In Periods II and III, you may be able to recover compensation from the driver’s personal policy first, then the rideshare company’s insurer.
