Protecting Your Interests If You Are Injured In A Rideshare Accident
Ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft are growing more popular by the day. For riders, it’s a convenient way to get from Point A to Point B. But when it comes to accidents resulting in injuries, it often takes a lawyer’s help to obtain the compensation you deserve.
- Washington and other states have only recently enacted regulations on what are being called transportation network companies (TNCs), but the regulatory language cannot fully address the wide range of liability issues that could occur.
- The biggest problem has to do with insurance. Most personal auto insurance policies specifically exclude coverage when the vehicle is being used for commercial purposes. .
- TNCs provide supplemental insurance, but the coverage conditions are often narrow and confusing.
So who is liable when a TNC driver is involved in an accident? Unfortunately, the answer is far from clear. Insurance coverage could literally change from minute to minute.
