Are Rideshare Companies Liable for Their Driver's Actions?
The liability of rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft for their drivers' actions is one complex area of civil law. Generally, these drivers are considered independent contractors, not employees, which can limit the company's liability.
However, rideshare companies do provide insurance coverage that can kick in during a driver's active duty—when they're logged into the app and either waiting for a ride request, on their way to a passenger, or during a trip. That said, situations where the company might be held more directly liable could include failure to properly vet drivers or if a company policy contributes to unsafe driving practices.
Common Injuries in Rideshare Accidents
Rideshare accidents can lead to various injuries, some of which can be catastrophic. Commonly reported injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal bleeding.
In severe cases, these accidents can also lead to the death of a loved one. One study found that rideshare accidents have contributed to at least 987 deaths a year in the United States.
Damages in Rideshare Accident Cases
The damages you can pursue depend on the accident's impact on your life. In the past, plaintiffs in rideshare accident cases have been able to seek compensation for:
- medical expenses (current and future);
- lost wages;
- pain and suffering;
- lost earning capacity;
- the cost of lifestyle modifications required due to the injuries;
- property damage; and
- death and funeral benefits (in the case of wrongful death)
