Who Is Liable for an Uber or Lyft Accident?

Determining liability in an Uber or Lyft accident can be complex. The responsible parties may include:

  • The Rideshare Company: If Uber or Lyft hired an unqualified or unsafe driver, they can be held accountable for the resulting harm. Both companies carry $1 million in liability insurance for accidents occurring while the driver is on duty and transporting passengers.
  • The Rideshare Driver: If the driver’s negligence caused the accident, their personal auto insurance might cover the damages. If the driver is uninsured or underinsured, the rideshare company’s $1 million uninsured/underinsured motorist policy may apply.
  • Another Driver: If another motorist caused the crash, they are responsible for compensating the victims. Again, the rideshare company’s insurance can provide coverage if the at-fault driver lacks sufficient insurance.

Our experienced Bothell Uber and Lyft accident attorney will thoroughly investigate your case to determine the liable parties and ensure you receive the compensation you need.

Protecting Your Rights After an Uber or Lyft Accident

Immediately after a rideshare accident, it’s crucial to take steps to protect your rights and strengthen your potential claim:

  1. Check for Injuries: Ensure everyone involved receives necessary medical attention.
  2. Call the Police: Report the accident and obtain an official accident report.
  3. Collect Information: Gather details from other drivers, passengers, and witnesses, including names, contact information, and insurance details.
  4. Document the Scene: Take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, road conditions, and any relevant surroundings.
  5. Take Notes: Record your recollections of the incident, including details of what happened before, during, and after the crash.
  6. Notify Your Insurance Company: Report the accident, but do not give a recorded statement without legal advice.
  7. Contact Murphy Trial Law: Our Bothell Uber and Lyft accident lawyer will guide you through the next steps and help you understand your legal options.
