Who is Liable for a Rideshare Accident?

Determining liability for a rideshare accident can be complicated because it depends on the driver’s status at the time of the crash.

If the driver was not working: If the driver was not working at the time of the crash, he or she would be considered an independent motorist. In this case, the driver’s personal auto insurance company would be responsible for covering the victim’s damages.

If the driver was working for Uber or Lyft but did not have the app on: If the driver was working for Uber or Lyft but did not have the app on at the time of the crash, he or she would be considered an independent motorist. In this case, the driver’s personal auto insurance company would be responsible for covering the victim’s damages.

If the driver was working for Uber or Lyft and had the app on but was not carrying a passenger: If the driver was working for Uber or Lyft and had the app on at the time of the crash but was not carrying a passenger, the rideshare company’s liability coverage would apply. Uber and Lyft both provide up to $50,000 in bodily injury coverage per person and up to $100,000 in bodily injury coverage per accident in these situations.

If the driver was working for Uber or Lyft and had the app on and was carrying a passenger: If the driver was working for Uber or Lyft and had the app on at the time of the crash and was carrying a passenger, the rideshare company’s full coverage would apply. Both Uber and Lyft provide up to $1 million in third-party liability coverage in these situations.

What Compensation is Available for Rideshare Accident Victims?

When you are injured in a rideshare accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability

Arizona is a fault state, which means that the at-fault party’s insurance company is responsible for covering the victim’s damages. However, rideshare accidents are complicated because the at-fault party may be the Uber or Lyft driver, the rideshare company, or a third party. An experienced rideshare accident lawyer can help you determine liability and fight for the compensation you deserve.
