Rideshare companies like Lyft are required by state law to provide insurance in the event their drivers are involved in accidents. The availability and the amount of insurance coverage varies depending on the Lyft driver’s circumstances at the time of the accident:
- Lyft driver is not on the mobile application: Lyft’s insurance coverage does not apply; instead, the driver’s own personal or commercial auto policy would apply to cover the driver’s liability for an accident.
- Lyft driver has logged into the mobile application but has not yet accepted a passenger request: At least $50,000 per person/$100,000 per incident of injury/death liability coverage, at least $25,000 per incident of property damage liability coverage, and PIP and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage as otherwise required by New Jersey law.
- Lyft driver has accepted a passenger request and/or a Lyft passenger in the vehicle: At least $1.5 million in liability coverage, at least $1.5 million in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, and at least $10,000 in primary medical coverage for the Lyft driver.
Under New Jersey laws governing the insurance requirements of Lyft and other rideshare companies, if a Lyft driver causes an accident, neither the driver nor Lyft can raise the “verbal threshold” as a defense in a claim brought by an injured accident victim. As a result, the accident victim may seek compensation for their non-economic damages like pain and suffering or loss of quality of life, regardless of the severity of their injuries.
