In recent years, ride-sharing has become a popular choice for transportation. Ride-share companies such as Uber and Lyft do not only make it easier to get from one point to another with just a few taps on the user’s smartphone, but they also make sure that choosing to book a ride instead of hailing and riding a cab, for instance, is more economical. 

As the patronage of Uber, Lyft, and other ride-share companies continues to rise, however, so does the occurrence of car accidents involving these ride-sharing vehicles.

Seeking Liability for Injuries from Uber and Lyft Accidents

As in all personal injury cases, seeking liability is never easy. What complicates things for accidents involving Uber, Lyft, and other ride-sharing companies is the involvement of multiple parties in negotiating and making claims. Unlike in a typical auto accident where the parties are usually just the drivers, passengers, or pedestrians, in some instances, in addition to their insurance companies, Uber and Lyft accidents would often implicate the ride-share company itself.

With multiple parties involved, it is thus not easy to determine which among them must compensate and, correspondingly, be compensated. Primarily, the goal in personal injury cases is to find the proximate cause of the injury. Was it the act or omission of the driver in operating the vehicle? Was it the driver of the other vehicle? Was the pedestrian negligent in using the crosswalks? Should the ride-share company be made to pay because of its duty to exercise due diligence in the recruitment and the supervision of its drivers? Assuming that the insurance company agrees to pay, from whom shall it seek reimbursement?
