Complexities Encountered In Lawsuits Against Uber or Lyft

Because of how new the idea of rideshare companies is to the public, so to is the idea of rideshare accidents to the world of personal injury law and litigation. This creates a number of potential problems should someone suffer an injury as a result of a crash involving one of these company’s vehicles and drivers.

In lawsuits pursuing compensation, there are several issues that may come up, making it difficult for the injured party to fully understand his or her rights. This makes it imperative to have a lawyer on your side to thoroughly understand your rights.

Questions Regarding Liability

While rideshare accidents are similar to any type of auto accident, liability can become an issue. Sure, the driver can be considered negligent for his or her actions such as drinking and driving, running red lights or stop signs, or otherwise acting in a reckless manner.

However, there are other factors that bring the company’s contribution to the accident in question. For instance, can they be considered liable if it can be shown they knowingly sent a notification of a potential passenger to a driver while he or she was driving, thus resulting in a crash due to the distraction?

Similarly, if the company fails to perform a background check on a driver, can they be considered liable? What if the driver doesn’t maintain his or her vehicle, yet a part is defective. Who is considered responsible at that point.
