Determining liability in Lyft and ride share accidents can be complex. This article explains the different factors that influence liability and how it affects your legal claim.

Driver Liability

The ride share driver may be liable if they were negligent or violated traffic laws. This includes distracted driving, speeding, and driving under the influence.

  1. Negligence: If the driver’s actions directly contributed to the accident, they could be held liable. Examples include running a red light or failing to yield.
  2. Traffic Violations: Violations of traffic laws, such as speeding or DUI, can establish driver liability.

Ride Share Company Liability

In some cases, the ride share company may also be liable, especially if they failed to perform adequate background checks or enforce safety standards.

  1. Background Checks: If the company neglected to perform thorough background checks and the driver had a history of dangerous behavior, the company might be liable.
  2. Safety Standards: Failure to enforce safety standards and protocols can result in company liability. This includes ensuring drivers are properly trained and vehicles are maintained.

Third-Party Liability

Other road users, such as other drivers or pedestrians, may also be liable for the accident. Understanding all potential liable parties is crucial for a successful claim.

  1. Other Drivers: If another driver’s negligence contributed to the accident, they could be held accountable.
  2. Pedestrians and Cyclists: Pedestrians or cyclists who act negligently and cause accidents can also be liable.

Legal Assistance

An experienced attorney can help identify all liable parties and build a strong case for compensation.

  1. Liability Investigation: Attorneys investigate the accident thoroughly to determine all responsible parties.
  2. Building a Case: Gathering evidence and building a case that clearly demonstrates liability and the extent of your damages.
