Understanding Taxi & Rideshare Accidents

Accidents involving taxis and rideshare vehicles present unique challenges:

  1. Different Insurance Policies: Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have different insurance coverage depending on the driver’s status at the time of the accident (e.g., whether the driver is waiting for a ride request, en route to pick up a passenger, or transporting a passenger). Determining which policy applies can be complicated.

  1. Multiple Parties: Liability can involve the rideshare driver, the rideshare company, other motorists, pedestrians, and even municipal entities in the case of taxis. Identifying all liable parties is essential for a comprehensive claim.

  1. Evolving Regulations: Rideshare services are governed by evolving state and local regulations that can impact the handling of accident claims. Understanding these regulations is crucial for building a solid case.

  1. Driver Classification: The classification of rideshare drivers as independent contractors versus employees can influence the liability and the extent of the company’s responsibility in an accident.
