Who Is Liable For Uber/Lyft Accidents?
Accidents involving an Uber or Lyft driver are more complex than other car accidents. You may be wondering: How do I file a lawsuit for these accidents? Who am I actually suing?
In most cases, Uber and Lyft are not liable for these accidents. Their drivers are classified as independent contractors, meaning they do not represent liability for the company as employees would. However, Uber and Lyft do carry insurance policies for cases like this, which may cover the cost of your injuries.
If you were a passenger in an Uber/Lyft vehicle that was hit by another car, the other driver might be at fault for the accident. In this case, you may need to pursue compensation from the other driver’s insurance company.
