Who is Liable in Uber and Lyft Accidents?

With ride share services becoming increasingly popular, it is important to understand who is liable in Uber and Lyft accidents. If a person gets into an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver, or an individual is a passenger in a ride share vehicle, there will likely not be much success in suing Uber or Lyft directly. This is because drivers for these companies are considered independent contractors, so a person would have to sue the driver personally. However, if the driver was on duty at the time of the accident, Uber or Lyft will assume responsibility and cover injuries, car damage, and potentially other damages depending on the circumstances. Uber and Lyft have comparable insurance policies which will financially cover the driver, passenger, and other parties involved in the accident, but there are a few catches that make this process more difficult to navigate. Read on to discover the intricacies of who is liable in Uber and Lyft accidents.
