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.
