Uber And Lyft Car Accidents - What You Need To Know


Did you know that your auto insurance company can exclude you from coverage at times when you injured while using Uber or Lyft? This is RI/MA personal injury lawyer Mike Bottaro and in today’s blog, I am going to educate you about car accident personal injury claims involving ride sharing or food service type situations.

Will My Auto Insurance Company Cover Me If I Am In A Car Accident While Driving For: Uber, Lyft, Door Dash, Etc.?

Your personal auto insurance may very well NOT cover you for your losses if you are using your personal car while working for a ride sharing/food service company like Uber, Lyft, etc.

The reason for this is because when you buy auto insurance for your personal auto, the auto insurance company (GEICO, Progressive, Liberty Mutual, Arbella, etc.) assume that you are not using your car for these services. If you do not disclose this information when you buy the insurance, than the insurance policy (a contract) typically will issue with an “exclusion” that states that the insurer will not provide coverage for any losses you incur while working for these type of services. Many people do not know this!  If this is you, you need to call or text me (401-777-7777) here at the Bottaro Law Firm, LLC right away!!
