    Are Ridesharing companies Held Liable for Damages After a Traffic collision?

    If the rideshare driver was negligent and caused an auto accident, the party held liable for your damages will depend on whether the driver was transporting a passenger at the time of the crash, whether they were on their way to pick up a passenger, or if they were off duty.

     

    Accidents While En Route to Pick Up a Passenger

    When a rideshare driver is using the app on their way to pick up a passenger and gets involved in an accident, the driver's personal auto insurance usually applies. However, many personal auto insurance policies have exclusions for accidents that occur while the vehicle is being used for commercial purposes. To bridge this gap, rideshare companies typically offer contingent liability coverage to their drivers. This coverage only applies if the driver's personal insurance denies the claim. It's important for drivers to review their insurance policies and understand the terms and limitations.

     

    Accidents With a Passenger in the Rideshare Vehicle

    If an accident occurs while there is a passenger in the rideshare vehicle, the rideshare company's insurance coverage usually comes into play. Companies like Uber and Lyft provide substantial liability coverage for their drivers during this phase of the trip. This coverage is designed to protect both the driver and the passenger in case of injuries or property damage resulting from the accident.

     

    How Does an Attorney Pursue Compensation Based on Rideshare Insurance law?

    Rideshare insurance laws vary by state and jurisdiction. Some states have specific legislation that mandates certain insurance coverage for rideshare drivers. If you decide to handle the claim on your own, it can quickly become overwhelming.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
