Determining fault in rideshare accidents is no different than determining who is at fault in any other motor vehicle accident. Our attorneys will review all available evidence including police reports, eyewitness statements, traffic cameras and more to determine how the accident occurred and who is responsible.
Insurance coverage is where these cases become complicated. Companies like Uber and Lyft require their drivers to carry auto insurance the meets or exceeds the minimum insurance requirements for motor vehicles in Oklahoma. They also provide their drivers with liability coverage to cover incidents that occur while they are logged into the rideshare app and driving for the ridesharing companies. Depending on the unique circumstances in your accident, such as whether the driver had accepted a ride request or whether they were driving in their personal capacity, your claim may be going after compensation from the rideshare company’s insurance policy, the driver’s personal insurance policy or both.
