Who Is Responsible for an Uber/Lyft Accident?

Similar to other motor vehicle accident cases, the negligent party will be considered at fault and liable for the accident. The at-fault driver will be responsible for all costs related to the accident, including losses experienced by the accident victim. That noted, the one to actually pay out this compensation will be the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

Some examples of negligence that would render a driver liable for an accident include:

  • Speeding
  • Ignoring/violating traffic laws
  • Weaving through traffic
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Drowsy/fatigued driving
  • Distracted driving, such as texting while driving

When Can You Sue Uber/Lyft for an Accident?

If the Uber/Lyft driver was negligent and caused an accident, that rideshare company’s insurance would be on the hook for any damages. It is possible to take legal action against the rideshare company itself if its insurance carrier refuses to compensate you fairly.

Whether the Uber/Lyft driver was on the way to pick up a rider or transporting a rider when the crash occurred may affect whether the rideshare company and its insurance will be considered liable. In the event that Uber/Lyft’s insurance policy does not extend to the circumstances of your crash, you may need to go through the driver’s personal insurance.
