What Are Rideshare Companies?
Rideshare companies provide a platform for passengers to book rides with private drivers through a mobile app. These companies offer an alternative to traditional taxi services. They use technology to match passengers with nearby drivers, handle payments electronically, and provide ratings for both drivers and passengers.
Biggest Rideshare Companies in America
In America, the largest rideshare companies are Uber and Lyft. Uber, with its global presence, is renowned for its extensive network and diverse service offerings, including luxury rides and food delivery through the Uber Eats platform. Lyft, on the other hand, is smaller than Uber and mostly serves the North American market, per Statista.
How Rideshare Companies Can Be Liable for Accidents
Liability for accidents can fall on these companies under specific circumstances. While it’s important to note that each case is different, these companies, or any other in the industry, can be liable for an accident if:
- the rideshare driver is logged into the app at the time of the accident;
- the rideshare driver is either waiting for a ride request, en route to pick up a passenger, or during a passenger trip; or
- the company failed to conduct proper background checks or maintain safety standards.
What If the Driver Was an Independent Contractor?
These companies, or their legal representatives, will likely argue that their affiliated drivers are typically independent contractors, not employees. But don’t’ let that argument stop you from fighting for your rights. The specifics of the case, like the driver's status at the accident time, are what will ultimately determine liability.
Keep in mind that Uber and Lyft both require drivers to have liability insurance, usually worth about $1 million. That shows that you may still have options to pursue compensation whether or not the at-fault driver was an independent contractor.
