Experienced Legal Advocates Fighting For Rideshare Accident Victims

Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have become incredibly popular in recent years. They are typically cheaper than taxis and more convenient than buses and other forms of public transportation.

Unfortunately, there are some hidden risks associated with rideshare services that could cost you a lot of money if you were involved in a rideshare accident. The insurance coverage for these services is often complex, allowing both insurers and rideshare companies to find and exploit liability loopholes. If you’ve been hurt as a rideshare passenger or in a collision with a rideshare vehicle, you need the help of a knowledgeable attorney like those at The Law Offices of L. Morgan Martin, P.A.

Questions Of Coverage And Responsibility After A Crash

It may sound odd, but one of the significant problems with rideshare accidents is an abundance of insurance coverage. Rideshare drivers are required to have their own personal auto policy, and Uber and Lyft both offer additional commercial coverage for accidents that occur in certain contexts. When two or more insurers are providing coverage, however, neither wants to accept financial responsibility. They may each deny liability, leaving the injured victim with no coverage.

The other major problem is that insurance coverage can literally change by the minute. Uber and Lyft both recognize several “tiers” of coverage based on when the driver is considered on duty and whether they have a passenger in the vehicle. If there is any opportunity to dispute a driver’s status at the exact moment of a crash, insurers and rideshare companies will do so. This could greatly impact the amount of coverage offered to you as the victim.
