Who May Be Liable For Your Uber Or Lyft Accident Injuries?

Determining who is liable for an Uber or Lyft rideshare accident can be complex. If the Uber or Lyft driver was negligent and working during the accident, the rideshare company may have to cover your damages. If that is the case, it can benefit someone with a serious injury because the rideshare company must carry a larger commercial insurance policy with higher policy limits than a typical personal auto insurance policy.

However, if the driver was not working during the accident, he or she could be personally liable for your injuries. If another driver caused the accident, their insurance company could be responsible for any injuries.

Your attorney must carefully review any Uber or Lyft accident resulting in injuries to determine who may be liable for your injuries. These accidents can be tricky to assign blame, but your Clearwater rideshare accident attorneys at Tragos, Sartes & Tragos have years of experience holding negligent parties accountable for their actions.
