Who Is Liable In An Uber Accident Or Lyft Accident?
Usually, the person driving the rideshare vehicle is at fault for the accident. There are some rare instances in which the rideshare company could be responsible, such as when:
- The company failed to screen their driver’s background.
- The company failed to train the driver properly.
The rideshare driver’s personal insurance provider might deny a claim for an injury that occurred while transporting a client, as insurance companies consider this time period business use and not personal use. Both Uber and Lyft provide liability insurance when their drivers are using their vehicles for business purposes. In a rideshare injury claim, your car accident lawyer may first have to file a claim with the driver’s insurer, and then file a second claim with the rideshare company’s insurer.
