What is Rideshare?
For years the only private transportation for people were either taxi services or very expensive limousine companies. While those two options are still available for the public, they are becoming increasingly unpopular given the rise of the Rideshare. Uber and Lyft have taken over and are changing the landscape for private transportation. Being the industry leaders in ridesharing, Uber and Lyft offer a service that allows its consumers to participate in a fee-based arrangement to get from point A to point B. This is most commonly arranged via the Uber or Lyft mobile apps and when the customer is picked up for the rideshare, the driver is clocked in and essentially working as Uber or Lyft’s employee.
Uber and Lyft Typically Carry $1M Liability Insurance Coverage
Being that thousands of Uber and Lyft vehicles are on the road daily, the probability of auto accidents occurring involving a rideshare car is highly likely. When the car accident happens and the rideshare is in progress, Uber or Lyft’s liability insurance policy takes effect to cover passengers and the driver of the vehicle. Our attorneys have represented both passengers and drivers of rideshare vehicles and have been successful in asserting claims under the $1M Liability Insurance Policy carried by Uber or Lyft. Regardless whether you were injured as a passenger or driver, you could be entitled to make a claim under the rideshare insurance policy.
What should I do after an accident?
Following a car accident, it is always advisable to call 9-1-1 and ensure that the police and paramedics come to the scene. If you are experiencing any pain, discomfort, soreness, or any other sensation that does not seem normal, then be sure to go to the hospital or see a doctor immediately. Many times, the insurance company will call those involved in the accident and request a statement surrounding the facts of the crash. However, it is advisable not to speak to the insurance company or any third party about the accident until you have consulted with an attorney.
