When Is a Rideshare Driver Liable for a Car Accident?
Recent estimates suggest that rideshare drivers were responsible for an up to 3% increase in overall car accident fatalities in the U.S. since the vehicle-share concept was initiated throughout the country.
The reality is, Uber and Lyft drivers may be contributing to more accidents, and the rest of the country because their livelihoods depend on accepting more rides, as quickly as possible.
That means, looking down at their phones, navigating maps and GPS instructions, and tapping on alerts each time a new rider has requested their services. Most rideshare drivers often toggle between both Lyft and Uber apps, to ensure they are maximizing their earnings.
The problem is, their cellphone use — including communicating with riders to ensure they are picked up in the right place — is the very definition of distracted driving.
When rideshare drivers are speeding, distracted, impaired, or otherwise recklessly driving their vehicles, there are four levels of liability outlined by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.
Depending on which level of liability the rideshare accident falls under, at the lowest level, the driver’s insurance may be pursued for our client’s injuries, and at the highest level, the rideshare company’s $1 million insurance policy may be pursued.
Our skilled rideshare accident attorneys will review your accident, the circumstances that caused it, your injuries, and the overall financial recovery necessary to make you whole again.

When is Another Driver Liable for an Accident Involving a Rideshare Driver
There are times when passengers may be riding in an Uber or Lyft vehicle and be involved in an accident with another negligent driver who has nothing to do with the rideshare driver or company.
When a third party is speeding, impaired, distracted, failing to obey traffic signs or signals, or otherwise negligent behind the wheel, he or she may be held liable for the crash, injuries, and overall damages that occur.
How Can I Hold a Rideshare or Third-Party Driver Liable for My Injuries?
Our skilled rideshare and auto accident attorneys will help you understand your legal rights and options to pursue any negligent driver’s insurance coverage for your full financial recovery after you have been injured by their policyholder’s negligence.
When our clients are injured by negligent drivers, they should never have to pay for their medical expenses, lost wages, and out-of-pocket costs on their own. We can help ensure that is true by pursuing the liable party — or combination of parties — that will allow us to reap the maximum financial outcome for each of our client’s unique cases.
Each of our rideshare accident cases begins with a free consultation, so we can discover each of the facts associated with the collision to ensure the claim legally qualifies to move forward. Next, we will outline each client’s crash circumstances, overall injuries, and complete damages, so we can begin precise negotiations with the liable party’s insurance company.
This ensures our clients are never intimidated by the at-fault party’s insurance representatives or corporate lawyers, so they can solely focus on their physical and emotional recovery needs.
We will handle the rest.
