Below are the three different kinds of ride-share accidents. If one of these situations sounds like what happened to you, our Indiana Uber accident lawyers may be able to help you seek maximum compensation for your pain and suffering.

Understanding Uber and Lyft’s Insurance and the Three Ride-Share Periods
Most ride-share companies have generous insurance policies to help compensate victims injured while using their service. While understanding these policies can be difficult, an experienced Uber accident lawyer can walk you through your case and help you understand what policies apply to you.
In order to determine whether you’re eligible for coverage under their policy, Uber and other ride-share companies will look at what stage you were at in your ride-share trip. In order to determine whether you will be covered under your ride-share service’s insurance policy, think back to where you were when the accident happened and whether it was during one of these periods.
If an accident occurs when the app is on and the driver is waiting for a ride request, the driver is only eligible for limited liability coverage. This would be up to $50,000 per person for medical expenses, up to $25,000 for property damages, and no more than $100,000 total.
This period begins when a driver is en route to pick up a passenger. Uber’s coverage for this period is up to $1 million of total liability coverage.
This period refers to the time when the passenger is in the vehicle. Coverage for an accident during this period is up to $1 million as well.
