What do you need to know?
Even though rideshare companies carry a $1million dollar policy, they will fight any claim against it. You may also need to file a claim against the driver’s personal insurance company. That’s why you need to have a very experienced rideshare lawyer helping you through this time.
If you were hit by a rideshare car who is on the clock, things get more complicated. Make sure you know the exact time of the accident. Sometimes the company will deny claims for many reasons. Sorting out which insurance company is responsible for damages and injuries is tangled, and complicated.
What is a rideshare?
Rideshare, services like Uber, Lyft or taxis, all typically carry million dollar insurance liability policies. If you or your loved ones suffered injuries while using one of these services, that is money you could have a right to claim.
Typically, using a ride share service should be safe as drivers undergo background and driving record checks. But sometimes, these safeguards aren’t enough. Even professional drivers can make a mistake.
