Even though Uber and Lyft may have insurance coverage for accidents involving their independent drivers, filing an insurance claim with the provider does not guarantee payment. As with any vehicle accident, you must prove the driver was responsible for causing the accident. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, both drivers could be partially responsible for the crash, or you could have another third party involved. The insurance provider for Uber or Lyft will not pay a claim if it believes another company or party may be liable.

Therefore, one of the first things that you must do is determine the cause of the accident and who contributed to the cause of the crash. This information allows you to file injury claims against the liable party or parties.
