Question:

Can you sue an Uber driver if you’re injured in an accident?

Answer:

I get a lot of calls from passengers in rideshare vehicles. We all know them. We have the handy dandy app. Your driver is on his way. He’ll be here in two minutes. You can even see him on the map. Here he is. You hop in the car. You think everything is going to be great. Then, boom, a crash happens. What do you do? Who’s at fault for that crash? As a passenger, you didn’t do anything to cause or contribute to the crash, so obviously you don’t have any responsibility for this, but what about the other two drivers? Maybe it was the other driver that hit your rideshare. Maybe it was your rideshare driver who ran the red light. What do you do? In that situation, we look at both drivers, the other driver and the rideshare driver, to find out who caused or contributed to this collision. Now, it’s important you get a trial attorney because a trial attorney will have the end in mind. A trial attorney will think from Day 1 this might go in front of a judge and jury. What evidence do we need today to lock this in to understand which driver was more at fault, how much are they at fault? That’s why it’s important you get a trial attorney who can look at the two drivers and figure out what’s important, what evidence is needed to make sure that you, the passenger, get what you’re entitled to.
