Uber & Lyft Accidents

Auto Accidents Involving Uber & Lyft

Injured in a ridesharing accident?

Uber & Lyft are two of the most widely used ridesharing services in the United States. These services - which are powered through a smart phone app - provide a convenient alternative to taxi services and public transportation. Although they have become increasingly popular, they have also introduced new legal issues in cases involving auto accidents, injuries, and liability.

The Daspit Law Firm is available to help victims and families who have been harmed in auto accidents involving ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft. If you have questions about a recent accident, we invite you to share your story personally with an attorney from our firm during a FREE case review.

Ridesharing Accidents & Unique Issues

Given the unique relationship between riders, ride-share drivers, and ridesharing companies, Uber and Lyft accidents can create complicated legal issues. Two important issues include:

  • Driving safety - Uber and Lyft drivers, unlike taxicab drivers, are considered independent contractors, not employees. This means they are not regulated or insured in the same way, and may not be trained in transportation. Because Uber and Lyft drivers must use smart phone apps, distracted driving can also become a dangerous issue.
  • Insurance issues - Insurance is often the most significant concern when people are injured in accidents involving Uber or Lyft, as there are gaps in insurance coverage and unique circumstances that can impact liability and a victim’s ability to recover compensation for their damages. For example, Uber’s commercial insurance policy does not cover Uber drivers when they are not transporting a fare.

These and other issues can threaten your ability to secure fair compensation after you’ve been involved in an Uber or Lyft accident. Whether you were a pedestrian, ride-share passenger, or driver of another vehicle, our attorneys at The Daspit Law Firm are ready to review your case for free and discuss whether you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim.
