Ridesharing services have become incredibly popular in the past several years.

Unfortunately, their unique policies have created concerns and issues in cases where riders are injured in accidents.

Ridesharing Accidents & Personal Injury Claims

Ride-share services have introduced a number of concerns when it comes to car accidents and personal injury. This is due to the fact that they are relatively new, and because of the unique relationships between companies, drivers, and riders.

  • Insurance Coverage - When you are injured in an accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to recover compensation from that party’s insurance provider. In cases involving Uber and Lyft accidents, companies typically carry a $1 million commercial liability policy. However, your ability to recover compensation can be complicated by their unique insurance policies. For example, Uber will only cover damages if their drivers have their apps turned on during a trip. If their app is off, victims may have to pursue compensation through the driver’s personal auto insurance.
  • Drivers - Uber and Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors rather than company employees. This legal relationship can complicate the issue of liability when personal injury claims are filed. It also raises questions about the safety, regulation, and training of drivers. Most ridesharing services don’t require much from drivers in order for them to work.
