Uber and Lyft Accidents
With traffic and road congestion becoming a growing problem in big cities, more people are choosing to utilize ride services, such as Uber and Lyft, to get them to their destination. Although the drivers of these services use their own cars and considered to be independent contractors, rather than employees, most ride service companies like Uber and Lyft insure their drivers or require them to obtain sufficient automobile insurance in the event of an accident. As a result, passengers who are injured in an automobile accident involving a driver of a ride service like Uber or Lyft will likely be able to recover damages if the driver was negligent.
