Since rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft came into existence, they have virtually taken over for taxi cab companies in Nevada. With such a high usage of Uber and Lyft has come the unfortunate reality of car accidents that occur while riding in an Uber or Lyft. The question we get asked most is… “Now what do we do?”
Rideshare Insurance Coverage
In Nevada, there are essentially three categories of Insurance that Uber and/or Lyft drivers will fall under:
(1) Uber/Lyft Driver causes the accident while you are a passenger: Uber and Lyft both carry insurance coverage of up to $1,000,000.00 (One Million Dollars). This means whoever they hit, and whoever are passengers in their vehicle, will be covered up to this amount.
(2) Uber/Lyft Driver is hit by another vehicle while you are a passenger: Under Insured Motorist coverage will be applied if the vehicle at fault that hit your Uber or Lyft does not have enough coverage for everyone in the crash.
(3) Uber/Lyft Driver gets in a crash but they are not logged in to the rideshare application then their personal insurance coverage kicks in.
