Possible Liable Parties for a Ridesharing Accident

Without knowing the correct liable party for any sort of auto accident, your personal injury claim can be delayed at best and its validity can be questioned at worst. It is our goal to be able to pinpoint liability by carefully reviewing any evidence or testimonies that originate from the scene of your ridesharing accident.

In a ridesharing accident claim, the liable parties may be:

  • Your ridesharing driver: In a typical car accident, you would probably not first think of bringing an injury claim against your own driver, but this can be the norm in ridesharing accidents. When you accept a ride from a ridesharing driver, you are entrusting them to drive carefully, safely, and in a way that avoids accidents. If they fail to exhibit safe driving behaviors and an accident occurs, then they could be the liable party.
  • Another negligent driver: Of course, there is always the possibility that your accident was caused by another negligent driver on the road. Even the best ridesharing driver can be blindsided by a reckless driver, such as someone who is texting or intoxicated behind the wheel.
  • Another passenger: Just as a negligent driver can crash into your ridesharing driver without warning, another passenger can disrupt or distract them dangerously as well. Many ridesharing services are used after a night of partying or drinking, making for rowdy, unpredictable passengers. Uber and Lyft also have options to save money by riding with strangers along the same route, meaning you could be paired with just about anyone.
  • Ridesharing company: There is also a prevailing controversy about ridesharing companies as a whole, and what liability they play in ridesharing accidents. Some have contended that a ridesharing company knowingly distracts its drivers by requiring them to keep their smartphones open and in-sight while they drive.
