Who is Liable for a Rideshare Accident?

People often encounter complications after a rideshare accident due to initially unclear liability for the crash. Unlike a typical car accident in which you can usually point at the other driver and know they did wrong, there might be multiple parties who have contributed to your rideshare accident in some way.

Parties who could be liable for your injuries and damages include:

  • Another driver who crashed into your rideshare service vehicle.
  • Your own ridesharing driver, who may have been driving recklessly.
  • Another rideshare passenger who intentionally distracted the driver.

Services like Uber POOL allow strangers into your rideshare vehicle for the trade-off of a reduced cost for the service. What happens if that stranger does something to cause your driver to crash?

Furthermore, liability is complicated by the fact that Uber and Lyft drivers are not considered employees. Instead, they are independent contractors. Employment lawsuits have been filed against both companies for alleged mislabeling of employees, but none have been successful in rebranding rideshare drivers as actual employees of these companies. As such, Uber and Lyft might be able to sidestep any degree of accountability if you get into a rideshare accident.

Insurance Coverage for Rideshare Accidents

When you're involved in a rideshare accident, it's important to understand the insurance coverage available to you. Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have their own insurance policies that may provide coverage for passengers, drivers, and other parties involved in the accident. Our Mobile, AL Uber and Lyft accident attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of insurance claims and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Key points to consider when it comes to insurance coverage for rideshare accidents:

  • Uber and Lyft provide liability coverage for their drivers while they are on duty
  • Passenger injuries may be covered under the rideshare company's insurance policy
  • Insurance coverage may vary depending on whether the rideshare driver was at fault or not
  • Additional coverage may be available through the at-fault driver's insurance policy

Don't hesitate to reach out to our team for a free consultation to discuss your rideshare accident case and learn more about your options for pursuing compensation.

Whether a rideshare driver, the driver of another vehicle, or someone else was responsible for the crash in which you were injured, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses.
