“Ride-sharing” companies like Uber & Lyft have revolutionized the transportation industry. According to INC, “Fifteen percent of adults in the United States have used a ridesharing app and of those, 17% use one on a daily or weekly basis.” And, a report by Goldman Sachs estimates that the ride-hailing opportunity could grow to $285 billion by 2030.
The reason for this is that these services provide an unparalleled level of convenience and cost-effectiveness for commuters around the country. With the increase of these “ride-sharing” companies comes an increase in accidents associated along with them. The laws and insurance controlling Uber and Lyft are constantly changing. If you find yourself getting injured in an accident when you are a driver or passenger of an Uber or Lyft, or your vehicle has been struck by one of their operators, you may not know what your rights are regarding being able to seek compensation for your injuries.
Considering that ride-sharing drivers typically don’t maintain the same level of insurance as traditional taxi company drivers, and the laws surrounding ride-sharing services are constantly changing, dealing with them can often be even more difficult.
