Rideshare Accident Liability
In order to hold rideshare companies liable for your accident, you must prove that they were negligent in some way. Uber and Lyft are notorious for claiming that they are not employers of their drivers, which means that they are not liable for the actions of their drivers. However, Uber and Lyft can still be liable for rideshare accidents if they were negligent in other ways. For example, if the rideshare company fails to screen its drivers properly, or if they fail to properly train their drivers, they can be held liable for any accident that occurs. Uber and Lyft are also liable for any accident that occurs while a driver is on a "ride," meaning that the driver is logged into the app and available to pick up a passenger. If you were involved in a rideshare accident that occurred while the driver was "on a ride," you may be able to sue the rideshare company for negligence.
