    Lyft deactivated my account permanently, because I was involved in a accident involving a bicycle, the biker stated that I didn't stop at the stop sign , but I have the camera in my car that show that I stopped and that the biker was bicycling in the middle of the road , but Lyft made that decision even before find out who's fault is , can I sue them for that?

      As I mentioned on a few other threads, Lyft is thinning out the drivers with whatever reasons they can come up with. They are doing this in certain markets because there are too many drivers for the current demand - in order to keep the average pay at a reasonable level.  They are either required to do this by the lawmakers or by the publicity they need to keep up.

      I believe since you are an independent contractor, you have limited rights to your work arrangement. Lyft can fire you for no reasons at all. (except certain cases like race, color, or national origin, sex and religion.)

      It should be in your contract, and I think your lawyer would point that out right away.

      I do empathize though. It's an awful feeling to have something you have built up be taken away from you overnight. ...and it's not even your fault!  I actually feel for all the Uber and Lyft drivers who have to live in fear for losing their jobs at any given point.
