Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyers

Uber and Lyft Promise to Get You Safely to Your Destination. When That Trust is Broken, Turn to Grimes Teich Anderson.

A car accident during an Uber or Lyft ride is an incredibly jarring and unexpected experience. Unfortunately, the weeks and months following can be just as much with many parties involved, including your insurance company, the driver and their insurance company, and the rideshare company and their insurance company.

There is a lot at risk if you don't know the tactics insurance companies use to undervalue claims or respond to their requests in a timely matter. Rather than handle your Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare company accident on your own, contact the attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson to get an experienced team on your side. We've been representing accident victims for over 40 years and know what it takes to get just compensation for our clients. Contact us for a free consultation by calling 800-533-6845 or submitting a consultation form on our website.

We will treat your case like we would our own and have the experience and compassion to get results for our clients.

Rideshare Insurance Requirements in North Carolina

There are specific insurance requirements that rideshare companies and drivers must have to operate in each state.

In North Carolina, rideshare drivers must have bodily injury insurance with a minimum of $30,000 per person and $60,000 per accident. A rideshare driver’s personal insurance is used if they hit a pedestrian or cause an accident while not working.

As outlined in Senate Bill 541, North Carolina requires $1.5 million in liability coverage by rideshare companies for all drivers who are “on the clock.” On the clock means when a driver has accepted a ride or a fare-paying passenger is in the vehicle.

Rideshare Insurance Requirements in South Carolina

In South Carolina, rideshare drivers must meet SC's minimum bodily injury and property damage insurance requirements. Under South Carolina's Code of Laws - Title 38, Chapter 77, Section 38-77-140 - all drivers must have insurance to cover $25,000 for bodily injury to one person in an accident, $50,000 for bodily injury to two or more people, and $25,000 to cover property damage due to a rideshare accident.

Rideshare companies only have to meet South Carolina's minimum insurance requirements.

*Each case is different, so not all information on this website, as well as some which may not be provided, will apply to every case. Because the facts and relevant laws are different from case to case, Grimes Teich Anderson does not guarantee that the outcome, results, or experiences with one lawyer or one case will be similar to another.

Except for Employment Law Cases, Attorney's fees are a percentage of the entire recovery and will be deducted before other expenses. In addition to the fee in these cases, Client will be responsible for litigation expenses, which will either be deducted from the recovery or paid by the client. Some Employment Law Cases may be handled on a contingency fee basis and others handled on an hourly basis, where the client is billed for the hours spent on the case. Based on our experience, we will advise you of the most appropriate fee arrangement in Employment Law cases.
