Who Are Potential Liable Parties in a Rideshare Accident?
Determining liability for a rideshare accident is usually one of the most challenging aspects of such claims. That’s because these companies tend to classify their drivers as independent contractors. That said, potentially liable parties can include:
- the rideshare driver;
- the rideshare company (like Uber or Lyft);
- other drivers involved in the accident;
- other entities, such as government agencies and construction companies, if poor road conditions contributed to the accident; or
- vehicle manufacturers, in cases involving vehicle malfunctions.
To hold the rideshare company liable, however, factors such as whether the rideshare driver was logged into the app and actively engaged in a ride will come into play. At Morgan and Morgan, our attorneys have access to powerful legal resources, including a team of accident reconstruction experts, that can help establish the facts about the accident to strengthen your case.
Elements of a Successful Rideshare Accident Claim
For a rideshare accident claim to be successful, it must meet certain criteria. This typically involves:
- establishing that the liable party owed a duty of care;
- breached that duty;
- caused the accident; and
- that the breach of duty led to your injuries and damages.
While these steps may seem pretty straightforward on paper, they’re much more complex to navigate in reality. That’s why we recommend involving a lawyer every step of the way for guidance and possible representation.
Important Evidence in a Rideshare Accident Claim
To prove liability, you must have strong evidence against the other party. This includes but is not limited to the police report from the accident, photos or videos of the accident scene, witness statements, and medical records documenting your injuries. Other important evidence may include the rideshare driver’s details and their driving history and status in the rideshare app at the time of the accident.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Rideshare Accident Claims in Pennsylvania?
In Pennsylvania, you only have two years from the accident date to take legal action. Any accident-related claim you file outside this window will be thrown out on the grounds of lacking merit.
