Can I sue Uber or Lyft if I was injured while riding with a driver?
Ultimately, it’s going to depend on whose fault it was and how much insurance is involved. If you are traveling in an Uber and you’re rear-ended and the vehicle that struck you has sufficient insurance, then there likely will be no reason to sue or bring a claim against Uber or Lyft. However, if that person is underinsured or uninsured, then you’ll have the protection of Uber or Lyft’s insurance. Now, on the flip side, if you’re involved in an accident and it is your Uber or Lyft’s driver’s fault, then you’re going to bring a claim against Uber or Lyft and their insurance company, and they always carry sufficient insurance.
