Proving Liability in an Uber Accident
Ridesharing companies have been in the news lately due to controversies surrounding their employment contracts, or lack thereof. Many people who regularly use Uber or Lyft to make an income believe that they are technically employees of the company, or at least contracted for work through the smartphone application. The companies have contested that ridesharing drivers are simply benefitting from the app but do not work for them directly. This uncertainty in definition of employment also muddles liability should an accident occur.
If you are struck by a pizza delivery driver completing a route, some liability will likely fall upon the driver’s parent company due to specialized business insurance. It would seem that the same rules should apply to Uber and Lyft drivers, but it may not be as straightforward. Contact our Daytona Beach car accident attorneys today to get the legal assistance you need to sort through the details and pinpoint liability.
Use our extensive injury claim experience to find out who is liable:
- Your Uber or Lyft driver
- Another driver involved in the accident
- Parent companies – Uber, Lyft, etc.
- Another passenger in your vehicle
In some instances, multiple parties may be responsible for your injuries. When this is the case, we may need to file claims against all necessary parties. The end goal is reaching a maximized compensation on your behalf so no payments come directly out of your own pocket.
Start Your Case with a Complimentary Consultation
Waiting too long to file an injury claim after being hurt in an Uber or Lyft accident may be a significant detriment to your chances of recovering full compensation. Not only do you risk the expiration of Florida’s statute of limitations law, but you may also give the liable party time to twist the truth and try to pin accountability on you. Our Daytona Beach personal injury lawyers offer free case evaluations to all prospective clients, allowing you to get more information about your rights as an injured party and who might be liable for your damages without paying anything first.
