Rideshare Accident Lawyer in Quincy
Also Serving Clients throughout Norfolk County
Rideshare applications, such as Uber and Lyft, are becoming increasingly more popular. Their affordable prices and accessibility via a smartphone make them attractive and helpful. However, when it comes to car accidents involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle, many do not know how to navigate filing a claim. If you or a loved one were in an accident where your Uber or Lyft driver was at fault, you may wondering who can be held responsible for the injuries you sustained.
Our Quincy personal injury attorneys can walk you through the process and help ensure that your interests are protected.
What Risks Are Involved When Riding with an Uber or Lyft Driver?
Uber drivers must pass a background check, have a clean driving record, and have at least three years of driving experience. Lyft drivers must pass a background and driving check, and have at least one year of driving experience. They do not receive specialized training as employees, nor are they required to pass any kind of driving test before getting hired. It is important to keep in mind that drivers for rideshare companies are generally just as skilled at driving as any other average driver. Therefore, they are subject to the same roadway risks that other drivers face.
Who Will Be Held Liable After an Accident?
Uber and Lyft drivers are technically “independent contractors.” Because of this employment status, your injury claim would be against the individual driver and not the company itself. However, both companies provide a liability policy for their drivers that can cover injured passengers up to $1 million.
