Uber and Lyft are the two most popular rideshare companies in St. Louis and across the United States.

What to Consider in an Uber & Lyft Accident Claim

Uber and Lyft accidents are unlike typical car accidents. Due to the involvement of a parent rideshare company, questions of liability, insurance, and more can be complicated. Before you get caught up and mixed up in the details of your case, hand it to the St. Louis rideshare accident lawyers of DiPasquale Moore. All our knowledge, experience, and resources effectively become your own when you let us represent you.

Three important considerations in an Uber or Lyft accident claim are:

  • Driver classification: Both Uber and Lyft have fought hard to keep their drivers classified as
    independent contractors, rather than employers. This classification can
    confound liability, possibly shielding the rideshare company from liability
    for any damages not covered by their insurance policies.
  • Insurance coverage: Uber and Lyft have $1 million insurance policies to cover damages caused
    by drivers who are using their apps when they cause a crash. The high
    coverage level doesn’t guarantee that you will get any coverage,
    though. You might still need to fight for it.
  • Driver qualifications: Commercial drivers must meet strict qualifications to earn employment at
    various businesses and companies. Yet Uber and Lyft drivers can usually
    begin using the app and earning money as a driver with virtually no background
    check. Drivers with dangerous driving records and criminal records involving
    violent crimes could be deemed “qualified” to drive for Uber
    or Lyft. We can consider the driver’s qualifications or lack of
    them when determining liability.

Can Passengers Sue Their Own Rideshare Driver?

When you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, you should be covered by the rideshare company’s insurance policy. However, the coverage might not apply to the full damages that you have experienced, especially if you suffered a catastrophic injury. In that case, you could have the option to file against the insurance policy that the driver purchased to cover themselves.

We can investigate the circumstances of your Uber or Lyft accident to figure out which parties should be named as liable defendants. The goal is to get you the most compensation possible for your injuries and losses.
