Connecticut Personal Injury Attorney Explains the Split of Liability in Rideshare Accidents

Hi, I'm Paul McConnell from the Dr. Moyer team. And I'm going to talk to you about accidents involving Uber and Lyft drivers as the popularity with Rideshare apps such as Uber and Lyft increases, more and more, we have questions arising about who's responsible when there's an accident involving Uber or Lyft. Drivers. While Uber and Lyft drivers are safe alternatives to taxis and driving yourself, they're still on the road, and accidents occur. As with any claim, the person bringing the claim must prove two things. First liability, that is who's at fault. And secondly, damages. That is property damage, but also personal injuries, injuries to the person and corresponding damages, such as loss of income if you've missed some work, Uber and Lyft. Drivers must have valid personal insurance policies in order to be drivers for their companies. But the question remains whose insurance policy is responsible to pay for damages when there's an accident? As with many legal issues, the answer is it depends. Could be the Uber or Lyft drivers insurance policy that covers it could be the company that is Uber or Lyft policy that's on the table could be the other driver. The good news is that there's a lot of insurance that's available in case it's needed in case of catastrophic or extensive damages.

Further complicating matters with respect to accidents involving Uber and Lyft drivers is that as a victim, if you're a passenger on one of these vehicles, how do you get access to police reports and the information you need to bring your claims? What to do? Well, first of all, take pictures. Make sure you keep all the information that you have from your app regarding who the name the identity of the Uber and bend or Lyft driver, the date and the time. Get the information from the police that are there doing the investigation if you can.
