Suburban communities such as Wayne tend to have limited public transportation available and are therefore relatively vehicle-dependent. As such, rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft have become very popular here, especially for those who do not want to drive on their own or are unable to do so. While rideshare services make it very easy to hail a ride with the press of a few buttons, more Uber and Lyft vehicles on the road have led to a sharp increase in rideshare-related accident cases. These cases can be very complex, so contact our Wayne Uber accident lawyer for professional legal assistance with your personal injury and accident claims.

Uber and Lyft drivers are technically categorized as contractors, not employees, so if an accident is caused by an Uber or Lyft driver, you normally cannot sue the rideshare company. However, depending on where, when, and how your accident occurred, you may be able to file a claim against the rideshare company’s insurer or sue the company for negligently onboarding an unsafe, untrained, or uncertified driver to their platform. If there is evidence to show that Uber or Lyft approved a driver who posed a significant risk to their platform, you may be able to sue for negligence. Also, if your accident occurred when a driver was logged into the app and carrying a passenger or was on the way to pick up a passenger, Uber and Lyft’s insurance policies will kick in and you can recover some of your damages from there.
In New Jersey, Uber and Lyft drivers are required to have at least $1.5 million in liability insurance for death, bodily injuries, and property damage, as well as uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage of the same amount and primary medical insurance of at least $10,000 per person. This is for accidents that occur when a driver is transporting or is on the way to pick up a passenger. If a driver is merely logged into their mobile app but is not actively driving to pick up someone and does not have a passenger on board, then they must have at least $50,000 per person/$100,000 per incident in bodily injury coverage, as well as at least $25,000 in property damage coverage.
