Liability for Uber/Lyft Accidents in Linden

With the increasing popularity and usage of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft, in recent years New Jersey has established rules for liability for Uber/Lyft accidents to ensure that innocent accident victims are fully compensated for their injuries and damages. In particular, the law requires rideshare services to offer insurance coverage, depending on the circumstances at the time of the accident as follows:

  • The rideshare driver is logged into the mobile application and is awaiting a ride request: At least $50,000 per person/$100,000 per incident in bodily injury coverage, $25,000 in property damage coverage, and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage in at least the minimum amounts normally required by law
  • The rideshare driver has accepted a ride request or is currently transporting a passenger: At least $1.5 million in bodily injury and property damage coverage, at least $10,000 in primary medical coverage, and at least $1.5 million in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage

If the driver is not logged into the rideshare mobile application at the time of an accident, his or her own personal auto insurance policy would apply.

Frequently Asked Questions about Uber/Lyft Accidents in Linden, NJ

FAQ: Do I need an attorney to pursue an Uber/Lyft accident?

Although you are not required to have an attorney to file a claim with the insurance companies or to file suit in court against those responsible for your accident and injuries, you will likely quickly find that those parties liable to you for your damages will fight hard to avoid paying you the full and fair compensation you deserve. Having an experienced Uber/Lyft accident attorney representing your rights and interests will make the claim process go far more smoothly for you and also improve your chances at getting maximum compensation for your injuries and damages.

FAQ: How do I pay for my medical treatment expenses while waiting to resolve my Uber/Lyft accident claim?

Although the party responsible for causing your Uber/Lyft accident and injuries should be held accountable to pay you for the medical treatment costs you incur for your injuries, the reality is that it will take some time to secure that compensation, even though you need to undergo treatment now. However, if you have your own auto insurance policy, you may be able to cover some of these costs through the personal injury protection coverage under your own policy. You may also be able to seek coverage for your treatment through your own health insurance coverage.
