Are ridesharing companies Uber/Lyft liable for an accident?

By default, Uber and Lyft are not responsible for the actions of their drivers. Both companies classify their drivers as independent contractors, not employees. This can make it difficult to hold ridesharing companies accountable for careless, reckless or dangerous Uber or Lyft drivers. However, the company may be held liable for collisions caused by negligence. For example, an Uber/Lyft company may be liable for negligence if the company fails to reasonably prevent a dangerous driver from receiving a passenger.

It's no easy feat for an injured victim to stand up as an individual to the ridesharing giants Uber or Lyft. Unfortunately, ridesharing companies have a reputation for vigorously contesting liability and fighting claims from victims. Getting the company to agree on compensation for the injured is not an easy task, even for innocent passengers.

However, hiring one of our experienced LA Uber/Lyft accident attorneys can level the playing field and greatly increase the odds that Uber or Lyft will treat your claim fairly. Most companies will offer a much higher settlement if they learn that the claimant has hired an attorney. Even before negotiating. They know that their attorneys have the power to take them to court if they do not treat the case reasonably, and will try to avoid this outcome with a better settlement offer.

In California, ridesharing drivers are required to have personal auto insurance for the vehicles they use to pick up and transport passengers. However, these policies may not apply to accidents that occur while the vehicle is being used for commercial purposes. This means that the driver's private insurance company can deny an injury claim and instead have to make a claim to the ridesharing company.

Ride-sharing companies offer additional liability insurance to drivers to pay for injuries and property damage following a negligent or uninsured car accident. The amount of coverage provided under company-sponsored insurance policies is based on the period in which the accident occurred.

Rideshare companies do not provide insurance if the driver is driving for personal purposes without logging into the app. However, if the driver is logged into the app, Uber or Lyft will provide a certain amount of compensation based on how long the car accident occurred.
