South Carolina car accident fault rules still apply. However, rideshare drivers have supplemental insurance, and both Uber and Lyft provide an accident guarantee of up to $1 million in compensation. Determining what insurance applies depends on the status of the driver at the time of the accident and who is at fault.
Our lawyers look at the multiple parties and insurance policies to determine who should pay compensation. We also work thoroughly through your damages so that you claim the amount that you deserve under South Carolina law.
If your Uber/Lyft gets in an accident:
Even when the accident involves a rideshare driver, it’s important to ask for insurance information from all the parties. As soon as you hire our lawyers, we speak on your behalf to the insurance company and Uber/Lyft. We can guide you through the process of receiving fair compensation and taking the necessary steps if your Uber/Lyft gets in an accident.
Fault for an Uber/Lyft accident is based on negligence. The party who is at fault for the accident should pay damages. Examples of fault for an Uber/Lyft accident are:
When an accident involves a rideshare company, there are the additional insurance policies and guarantees that may apply in addition to the individual driver’s insurance. The first step is to determine fault and look to that party’s insurance coverage. Then, if they are unable to satisfy a claim, the rideshare guarantees may apply. If the rideshare driver is at fault while giving a ride, the Uber/Lyft $1 million guarantee may cover damages.
Report the accident to Uber through the website or app. Our lawyers can help you identify and document your damages. We may negotiate a settlement on your behalf or help you file the appropriate legal claim.
Report the accident to Lyft. Our lawyers can help you identify the damages and compensation that you deserve. If you disagree with their determination of compensation, we can help you negotiate or file a legal claim.
Even though Uber and Lyft may provide a $1 million insurance guarantee, remember that they’re in business to make a profit. They want to pay you as little as possible for your accident. If you don’t know what you deserve in compensation, and take the right steps to claim it, there’s a good chance that you’re going to receive too little for your claim.
