What to Do After a Rideshare Accident in Oklahoma City

If you are involved in a car accident with an Uber or Lyft vehicle in Oklahoma City, you must take the right steps. First, you should make sure that you are safe and call 911 if anyone is injured. You should also report the accident to the police so that an official report can be made.

After the accident, you should do the following:

  • Get the name and contact information of the rideshare driver
  • Obtain the name and contact information of any other drivers involved
  • Take pictures of the accident scene, if you can
  • Get the names and contact information of any witnesses
  • Report the accident to Uber or Lyft

You mustn't admit fault for the accident to anyone or sign any documents without first speaking to a lawyer. You should also avoid speaking to the rideshare company's insurance carrier until you have legal representation.

How to Sue for a Rideshare Accident in Oklahoma

After a car accident, you are usually able to recover compensation from the at-fault party's insurance company. However, this can be more complex when the other driver is an Uber or Lyft driver. In Oklahoma, rideshare drivers are not required to have commercial insurance. Instead, they are only required to have the state's minimum insurance coverage.

When the rideshare driver is on the clock and has a passenger in the vehicle, Uber and Lyft provide third-party liability coverage. This policy covers up to $1 million in bodily injury and property damage. However, when the driver is working but does not have a passenger in the vehicle, the rideshare company provides limited liability coverage.

The rideshare company's limited liability coverage includes:

  • $50,000 per person in bodily injury
  • $100,000 per accident in bodily injury
  • $25,000 per accident in property damage

When the rideshare driver is not working, you will need to file a claim with the driver's personal insurance company. However, many personal auto insurance policies have exclusions for drivers who use their vehicles for commercial purposes. If the driver's insurance does not cover the accident, you may need to file a claim with your own insurance company.

Because of the complexities of rideshare accident claims, you should have an experienced lawyer on your side. At Martin Jean & Jackson, we can help you understand your legal options and fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
