Uber and Lyft accidents in the San Francisco Bay Area
The rideshare services industry pioneered by rideshare companies Uber and Lyft has grown exponentially over the past decade, with passengers summoning a ride with just the push of a button on their phone. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the rideshare services provided by these rideshare companies are a very popular way of getting around. But what happens if you ride with an Uber driver or Lyft driver, there’s an Uber accident or Lyft accident, and you are injured?
What Insurance coverage is available to Uber & Lyft Passengers?
When you ride using your Uber or Lyft account, these companies provide $1 million dollars of car accident insurance coverage, and this is on top of any personal auto insurance coverage you may carry or any additional car accident insurance coverage your Uber driver or Lyft driver may have. When an Uber driver or Lyft driver is involved in a car accident, the first question that arises is whether the vehicle was “in service” when the accident occurred. That answer will determine if the car accident is covered by Uber or Lyft’s insurance policy or by the driver’s own personal auto insurance policy.
What if I was traveling in a vehicle which was involved in an accident with an Uber or Lyft vehicle?
If you were a car accident victim traveling in another vehicle in a car accident caused by an Uber or Lyft vehicle, their insurance coverage will be determined by whether their driver was in service at the time of the accident. If there are no riders in the Uber or Lyft vehicle, and the driver is not in route to pick up a passenger, the only insurance coverage on the vehicle is the driver’s auto insurance policy. Insurance policy coverage increases when the driver is in route to pick up a passenger, or when a passenger is in an Uber or Lyft, then the vehicle insurance policy coverage increases to $1 million dollars.

Uber Accident and Lyft Accident Reporting
It is very important to note that while both Uber and Lyft have an accident reporting hotline, we do not recommend that you speak directly with them and we do not recommend that you give a recorded statement to them. You are not required to provide any statement without your attorney being present. Insurers and insurance adjusters seek to minimize your damages and the amount they have to pay. Do not discuss your Uber accident claim or Lyft accident claim with anyone without first consulting your accident attorney. What may appear to be an innocent remark on your part as to how the accident occurred, or how you were injured, can be distorted or changed by others – especially the other party’s insurer. If anyone does contact you about your case, refer them directly to our law firm or consult with us before you answer any questions.

Recommended steps to take after you have been in an Uber accident or Lyft accident
- Call the Police, and get a Traffic Collision Report. (Dial 911) and wait for a Police Officer to arrive at the scene so that you can file an accident report, even if you don’t think you’re injured. Often people don’t realize they are injured until several hours or days after an Uber accident or Lyft accident has occurred. Make sure to tell the Police and the 911 operator of any symptoms you are having. Be sure Police interview you and the party who hit you and any witnesses who saw the accident. Tell the police officer all of the details of what happened. Note the responding officer’s name and badge number. A Police report will be important later when pursuing a claim against the insurance company of the responsible parties.
- Make sure to record all contact information and insurance information for the other party as well as any witnesses who saw the accident. Note the license plate number, names, and phone numbers on your phone in a note-taking app, or simply text or email those details to yourself. If you are injured ask a bystander to do it for you. Get the insurance company name and policy number for the party who hit you. Write down as many details of the accident as soon as possible after so you don’t forget them over time. Include everything the other driver and any witnesses said or told you, anything you said, how the accident happened, and any symptoms you have.
- Take photographs. Take pictures of the accident scene, the position of the vehicles, any damage to the vehicles, the license plate of the vehicles, and the driver’s license and other party’s insurance card, as well as of any visible injuries or bleeding you have. If possible, take pictures of the position of the vehicle that hit you before it is moved out of the roadway.
- Don’t discuss the accident with the other party or make any statements about the accident. Many drivers will seem nice at the time and will even admit fault only to later deny they hit you or say that you were to blame for the accident. Make a note of anything they say to you or you overhear them telling others. Good note-taking can be very useful in pursuing your claim.
- Seek immediate medical treatment at the scene of the accident. Ask the Police to call for paramedics to take you to the hospital. When you arrive at the hospital, tell the doctors and medical staff what happened and detail your symptoms, pain, and injuries. Be sure to go into full detail about all areas of your body that are injured, hurting, or require any medical attention.
- Do not talk to the driver’s insurance company (or give a recorded statement to your own insurance company) or the other party involved in the accident. Do not discuss your case with anyone without first consulting your lawyer. What may appear to be an innocent remark on your part as to how the accident occurred, or how you were injured, can be distorted or changed by others – especially the other party’s insurance company. If anyone does contact you about your case, refer that party to our law firm or consult with us before you answer any questions.
