Ridesharing Companies, Are You Covered?

Ridesharing companies have become very popular recently. Many of us just jump in the back of an uber without thinking about what would happen if the car was in a wreck. Uber drivers are only required to carry $50,000.00 in bodily injury coverage per person (and $150,000.00 per incident). What that means is – if your uber is in a wreck, and your damages are more than $50,000.00, the insurance company won’t have to pay you any more than that $50,000.00. Damages include medical bills (past and future), lost wages, and pain and suffering. What’s worse, if there are four people in the car, those four people are capped at $150,000.00 in total coverage. You may have to battle with your friends to split the coverage available to you after the Uber driver causes a wreck. Lyft carries the same $50,000.00 per-person limits, but the total coverage is capped at $100,000.00.
