Question:

Who is liable in a ridesharing accident?

Answer:

Liability in a Rideshare Accident A good question we got from a client recently was, “Who is liable in a ridesharing accident in the state of Florida?” Ridesharing refers to riding in an Uber or Lyft. This client was in an accident in Tampa where he was struck by a vehicle driven by an Uber driver, someone that basically was driving on behalf of Uber. A lot of questions come out of these types of cases. If you have a question like this about your own ridesharing accident, contact us and we’ll sit down and discuss your case.

The lawyers for the insurance companies, for Uber and Lyft, are fighting these cases vigorously. They’re saying that these drivers are not employees and, therefore, they’re not responsible. There are various legal theories out there, including agency theories, that put Uber and Lyft on the hook. Give us a call for a free evaluation of your case.
