Who Is Responsible?

As long as you have a driver’s license, personal auto insurance, a working vehicle, and meet other requirements, potentially anyone can become an Uber or Lyft driver. Many of these people lack the proper training and experience to transport clients. They also rely on navigation devices or their cellphones to get where they need to go, which can be a distraction.

Uber or Lyft accidents claims are different compared to a normal car accident claim. For example, Uber considers their drivers as independent contractors as opposed to employees, which gives them the opportunity to deny injury claims, specifically when the driver switches his Uber app “off.” However, when the app is on and the driver is available, Uber’s contingent liability coverage and the driver’s personal insurance may be accessed. Lyft possesses similar insurance policies, depending if the driver is actively working or not.
