Who Is Liable For Damages In An Uber or Lyft Accident?

If you've been in a rideshare accident, you undoubtedly have a few questions. Usually, victims of Uber or Lyft accidents want to know if they can sue the rideshare company. Other times, they want to know if they can sue the rideshare driver. The answer almost always depends on the circumstances of the accident. With Burneikis Law on your side, we take the needed steps to assess the situation. These include:

  • Determining your role in the accident - were you the rideshare driver, rideshare passenger, in another vehicle, or the pedestrian?
  • What the cause of the accident was
  • Whether or not the rideshare driver was on duty at the time of the accident

The main rideshare companies (Uber & Lyft) provide insurance coverage for their drivers so long as the drivers were logged into the app at the time of the accident. If the rideshare driver was on duty and caused an accident that resulted in your injuries, you are eligible to file a claim against them. This is also true if you were the passenger of the rideshare driver, a pedestrian hit by a rideshare vehicle, or were in another vehicle during the accident.
