What Is An Uber & Lyft Accident?
Uber & Lyft are ride-sharing services. Uber & Lyft are popular ride-sharing services that allow passengers to request rides from drivers with their smartphones. Uber & Lyft drivers are not employees of the ride-sharing companies but are independent contractors.
Uber & Lyft drivers are not employees but independent contractors. This means that Uber & Lyft drivers are not covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Instead, Uber & Lyft drivers are covered by their personal insurance policies. Because Uber & Lyft drivers are independent contractors, they are not required to purchase additional insurance coverage to cover their passengers.
Uber & Lyft accidents are no different than any other motor vehicle accident. The same laws and regulations that apply to all other motor vehicle accidents apply to Uber & Lyft accidents. The only difference is that Uber & Lyft accidents are more complicated to investigate and require a more thorough investigation to uncover all of the facts.
The insurance company will likely deny coverage for an Uber & Lyft accident. The insurance company for the Uber & Lyft driver will deny coverage for the accident. This is not because the insurance company does not believe the accident occurred but because the insurance company believes that the driver was not acting as a driver at the time of the accident. The insurance company will argue that the driver was acting as a passenger and not as a driver.
Uber & Lyft Accident Claims Require Specialized Investigation. Uber & Lyft accident claims are more complicated to investigate because the investigating attorneys must prove that the Uber & Lyft driver was acting as a driver at the time of the accident. The attorneys need to prove that the Uber & Lyft driver was on a ride-for-hire trip and not just driving to or from a passenger pickup or drop-off location.
