UBER’S LIABILITY COVERAGE | WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
The ridesharing services Uber and Lyft share a liability coverage system. Essentially, depending on the circumstances of an accident Uber may provide injured parties with a certain amount of financial compensation. Uber/Lyft’s liability coverage is as follows:
- Period 0: Period 0 is when an Uber driver isn’t logged into the app yet and causes an accident. Since the driver was not logged in or using the app, Uber will not provide liability coverage. This means that injured parties will have to sue the driver’s regular insurance company.
- Period 1: Period 1 is when an Uber driver is logged into the rideshare app but hasn’t accepted a ride yet and causes an accident. In this case, Uber provides liability coverage for up to $50,000 per person injured in the accident, $100,000 total injury liability per accident, and $25,000 in property damage liability.
- Period 2: Period 2 is when an Uber driver causes an accident after accepting a ride and is on the way to pick up a passenger. When this happens, Uber will provide the injured party with up to $1 million in liability coverage.
- Period 3: If an Uber driver picks up a passenger and causes an accident with a passenger in the car, Uber will provide $1 million in liability coverage, limited coverage for damage to the driver’s car, and uninsured motorists’ coverage.
To win a personal injury claim, you will have to prove liability, meaning you must prove that you were injured as a direct result of another person’s negligence. You will have to present evidence, such as pictures of the accident, witness testimony, or relevant medical documents that prove your injury was no fault of your own.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.
- Elizabeth S.
Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.
