Uber and Lyft drivers are classified as independent contractors, and this can make it difficult to hold Uber, Lyft, and/or their insurers liable for compensating the innocent accident victims that Uber and Lyft drivers injure while driving. Thankfully, New Jersey recently passed several laws to resolve this issue, and these new laws require rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft to have different levels of insurance coverage that can be used to compensate accident victims.
The amount of insurance coverage that you may be entitled to from Uber or Lyft through drivers serving as contracted Uber or Lyft drivers depends on the circumstances at the time of the accident.
These insurance limits apply to Uber and Lyft passengers, the occupants of other vehicles involved in an accident caused by an Uber or Lyft driver, as well as pedestrians, bicyclists, and Uber or Lyft drivers themselves.
For each case and every scenario, our skillful Lyft accident attorney in Parsippany, NJ will review the case evidence and determine who was at fault and how much you may pursue as damages. This includes:

Furthermore, you have six years from the date of the accident to file a suit for compensation for property damage. For minor children who were victims of Uber or Lyft accidents, these time limits – otherwise known as the statutes of limitations – do not start to run until the individual turns 18 years old.
