Rideshare Accidents & Unique Concerns

Rideshare accidents involve several unique concerns when it comes to the personal injury or wrongful death claim process. Here are a few important points:

  • Driver Status - Uber and Lyft drivers are classified as “independent contractors” rather than employees. In the event of accidents, this status can create difficulties with liability and may allow the ridesharing companies to avoid responsibility for paying damages.
  • Driver Training - Because drivers are not considered employees, they do not have to meet the same qualifications or abide by the same regulations as professionally licensed drivers. This can create unique issues in cases where driver negligence or error was involved.
  • Insurance - Uber and Lyft insurance policies have contributed to many challenging auto accident cases over the years. This is due to the fact that ridesharing services don’t always cover drivers and passengers with their commercial policies in the event of injury-causing accidents.

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
