Rideshare Accident Claim
If you’ve been in an accident involving a Rideshare company, the process is not much different from a normal accident. The only difference is they are required to carry a significant amount of insurance.
As convenient as Rideshare companies are, accidents still happen. Take as many precautions as possible like always wearing your seatbelt. You never know how long your driver has been on the road. In the middle of a long shift a driver could become distracted or lose focus. The accident could be no fault of theirs either. In any of these scenarios, an experienced attorney should be consulted.
