Ridesharing has grown to be one of the most popular forms of transportation across the world, with Uber and Lyft being the most prominent. As with any other method of transportation, rideshare accidents are going to happen. The liability coverage that both Uber and Lyft provide for their drivers varies depending on when the accident occurs:
🟢 Period 0: When a driver is not logged into the Uber/Lyft app, neither company will provide coverage.
🟢 Period 1: When the driver is logged into the Uber/Lyft app but has not yet accepted a ride, both companies provide liability coverage for an accident that was caused by the rideshare driver, up to $50,000 per individual hurt in an accident, $100,000 total injury liability per accident, and $25,000 property damage liability.
🟢 Period 2: When the driver has accepted a ride and is on the way to pick the passenger up, liability coverage increases to $1 million.
🟢 Period 3: When the rideshare passenger is in the car, ending at drop-off. Liability coverage of up to $1 million, plus limited coverage for any damage to the driver’s car, and uninsured motorist’ coverage.

When filing a lawsuit, it is important to understand the terminology and potential outcomes of your claim. One important distinction is the difference between compensatory and punitive damages.
If you win a lawsuit, you may be entitled to a sum of money, known in the legal world as "damages." Damages, in many cases, come in two major categories: punitive and compensatory damages. Compensatory damages are intended simply to pay the person who was injured. Punitive damages seek to punish the person for their wrongdoing. Punitive damages are awarded in addition to actual damages in certain circumstances when the defendant's behavior is found to be especially harmful.
