I was in an accident with a Rideshare driver, what now?

Rideshare involved accidents are Very complicated.

When it comes to rideshare accidents, determining liability can seem like a maze with no clear exit. Accidents involving these services often raise questions about who should be held accountable for the damages and injuries sustained. We understand complexities and have experience with the inherent uncertainties, but that’s where our team at Brumley Law Firm comes in.


Additionally, the involvement of multiple stakeholders creates complications These accidents can be caused by various factors, including the actions of the rideshare driver, other motorists, or even external factors like road conditions. Understanding who is responsible for the accident can be a daunting task, especially for those who are already dealing with the physical and emotional aftermath of the incident.

The Impact on Victims

Rideshare accidents can have a profound impact on victims, both physically and emotionally. The fear, pain, and uncertainty that follow such incidents can be overwhelming, and it’s essential to acknowledge the emotional toll it takes on individuals and their families. Physical injuries sustained in rideshare accidents can range from minor bruises to severe and life-altering conditions. Victims may require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term care. The fear of coping with these injuries, along with the associated medical bills, can be daunting.

Moreover, the emotional trauma that follows an accident can be equally challenging to navigate. Many victims suffer from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after a traumatic event. The fear of getting back on the road or entering a vehicle again can be paralyzing for some.

Will Uber or Lyft be responsible for paying for my injuries?

If you have been injured due to an accident that involved Uber or Lyft, you may be entitled to compensation. This is true whether you were the driver of another vehicle, the passenger in the rideshare, or a pedestrian. The difficulty is that rideshare accidents can require mountains of paperwork and can involve complex competing insurance policies. You should also expect inadequate settlement offers from the rideshare corporation’s big insurance company who is more worried about their profit margin than about your pain and suffering, injuries, and healing.  The advent of ridesharing services has revolutionized transportation, but accidents involving Uber and Lyft vehicles pose unique challenges and it is imperative to secure competent  legal representation. 

Whose Insurance Covers the Accident?

It can be confusing to figure out who is at fault and which insurance company should compensate you for your injuries. Usually, a vehicle driven for a rideshare company such as Uber or Lyft is the driver’s personal vehicle that is being used for a commercial purpose. The driver is required to have their own car insurance that covers the time that they are not engaged in activities for the company. In addition, Washington State law requires rideshare services to provide commercial insurance for all passengers riding in the vehicle while it is in service as a rideshare. This can get complicated, but in general, when a paying passenger is injured while riding in a rideshare, the corporation’s insurance will be responsible for their injuries. If the driver is involved in an accident when using their vehicle for personal purposes, their own auto insurance policy will be sought for coverage.
