Assigning fault for an accident is a cornerstone of personal injury law. When an individual’s negligence causes another person to suffer an injury, the negligent individual is liable for the victim’s damages. In other words, if you’re injured because somebody else behaved in a negligent manner, that person is responsible for covering your injury-related expenses.
In today’s world, rideshares like Uber and Lyft are common. And because of this, so are questions regarding their drivers’ legal liability for victims’ damages when they’re involved in car accidents. In Massachusetts and the other 11 states with no-fault auto insurance laws in place, victims injured in collisions with Uber drivers typically have their damages covered by their own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. But when a victim doesn’t have PIP coverage or the victim’s damages render her eligible to file a personal injury claim under Massachusetts law, she may pursue compensation through a claim against the negligent driver or, under certain circumstances, against the rideshare platform.
In many ways, car accidents are the same no matter where they happen. Two cars collide, perhaps at a high speed, and either (or both) of the drivers suffer injuries. But beyond the mechanics and physical consequences of a collision, where a car accident happens has a huge impact on the injured victims’ rights and options for pursuing damages.

As the days warm and more drivers take to the road for road trips, beach vacations, and the like, the risk of being involved in a car accident increases.
