Your Guide to Rideshare Accidents: Whose Liable?

Ridesharing services have changed the way we live our lives. Ordering a car ride to any given location is only minutes away after the tap of a few buttons. 

Not only have these services made our lives easier, but also safer. Those without cars now have an option for getting around outside of public transit, and fewer people are drinking and driving. Despite these benefits, no service is perfect, including Uber and Lyft. Something people do not talk about often, and some aren’t aware of, are ridesharing accidents. 

These types of car accidents don’t happen all of the time, but they still occur. And when people find themselves in this type of auto accident, it’s often confusing. 

  • Who is liable? 
  • How do injuries and medical bills paid for? 

These are just some of the questions we get here at A to Z Injury Law. If you were recently involved in a ridesharing accident, our team is here to help. Fighting for financial and medical compensation is no easy feat when it comes to battling it out with Uber or Lyft. 

The way these companies operate is unique compared to the average auto accident. Figuring out who is liable and who to take to court is confusing. But that’s what we are here for. 

Our team can navigate the ridesharing accident lawsuit with you. Below, we have more information for you to learn about ridesharing accidents.

How Do Ridesharing Accidents Impact Victims?

There are different types of ridesharing accidents. One type is being a rider and being in the vehicle during the accident. The other type is being a pedestrian, bicyclist, or another motorist. 

Depending on which situation you were in will depend on how our attorneys proceed with building your case. However, all scenarios can cause damages ranging from minor to extensive. 

Consistent with standard auto accidents, victims of ridesharing accidents potentially face physical injuries, both externally and internally.  These injuries may require medical attention and thus tons of medical bills. These hospital or doctor bills, along with other medical bills, such as prescriptions and treatments, can be expensive. 


Financial strain can occur, and the victim can find themselves stressed out, unable to pay the bills.

Victims may also find themselves dealing with mental distress and trauma from the accident. Victims involved in more severe accidents often experience these instances and sometimes develop conditions such as PTSD and anxiety. This anguish is something that should also get considered in the lawsuit process, and this is what we help you with.

How Can Victims Seek Justice?

Regardless of if the accident was life-threatening or caused a broken bone, victims should seek justice. However, seeking justice in ridesharing cases is no walk in the park. That is why we stress seeking out an attorney with ample experience.
