Uber and Lyft is an innovative service which enables you to ride-share via your smartphone for both the IOS and Android. Uber and Lyft is much like a taxi service which allows you to pick up people and drop them off. Just like the Taxi service, Uber and Lyft have insurance. Many people, when involved in an accident, will file a lawsuit, however, they tend to be low because of its cheap insurance policy (PIP). Uber and Lyft, on the other hand, have what is known as a commercial policy. These commercial insurance policies have limits. On average, the threshold of the insurance exceeds one million USD. Essentially, what this means for you is that if you were involved in a car accident in an Uber or Lyft car, you could have a higher chance to recover money for damages due to the car crash. It is always important to speak with a lawyer at our personal injury law firm if you have had such an accident for a free no obligation consultation.
