Auto accidents involving ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft are unique because of the changing landscape of the laws that regulate such businesses. Under current company policies, drivers should be covered as long as they are logged into the app. Likewise, passengers should be covered too. The legal grey area, however, is when someone is on their way to pick up a client. In these cases, the victim of a crash will have to go through the driver’s personal insurance before reaching the rideshare company. In some other cases, injured passengers have to fight against the driver, the driver’s insurance, or even the driver’s contractor to receive fair compensation. So you just got into a Rideshare accident and you want to know what to do next? Let us explain what you need to know.

Do rideshare companies have their own insurance policies?

The accident happened around 8:30 a.m. State police told WDSU that the tanker is leaking fuel and the bridge will be closed for an extended period of time. According to New Orleans EMS, two people were taken to the trauma center. Drivers should take U.S. 90 or the Causeway Bridge until further notice.

What is a rideshare company?

Rideshare companies (also known as Transportation Network Companies or Peer-to-peer ridesharing) provide driver-for-hire ridesharing services to consumers by contracting with freelance drivers who use their personal vehicles to transport passengers. This service is provided through a smartphone app that is convenient and often inexpensive. Simply pull out your phone, request a ride, and within minutes you’re on your way. Once you arrive at your destination, simply get out and move on with your day. The app handles the payment automatically. They are extremely convenient and easy to use. But there are also some serious concerns about how these services operate, how they screen their drivers, and how they protect their customers if there’s an accident.

(Houston, TX) A pickup driver admitted to drinking several tequila shots before crashing into a Lyft car and killing its passengers. Erik DeLeon, 21, is facing intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault charges in the deadly crash, according to Sean Teare, head of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office Vehicular Crimes Division.

DeLeon told police he had just left an establishment before he slammed his pickup into two vehicles, killing the Lyft passenger, who was minutes away from home after flying into Houston from a business trip, Teare said. The passenger was texting his wife during the ride, telling her he was almost home when the crash happened.collision

This congestion of the roads demands special attention and precaution, particularly in school zones. As reported by the Transportation Research Board, over 100 children are killed walking from school annually, where another 25,000 are injured. Because of this, it is imperative that drivers make sure our roads are safe when traveling with such precious passengers.

Distracted Driving not only ruins vehicles, it ruins lives. Adam Miller was born in July of 2003. His mother Cheryl said he was loud, exuberant and loved trains. “It was wonderful to see him set up the whole train set … and make all the different shapes,” she said. “And he would watch the engine pull the rest of the train along.” By the time he began Kindergarten Adam became a big brother to little Eli. He fell in love with school and wanted to be a teacher. On November 15th 2008, a flat tire left Adam and his dad on the side of Plainfield-Naperville Road. Distracted driving simultaneously occurred by an approaching vehicle as the driver bent down to pick up a cigar wrapper. He didn’t spot the father-son duo’s parked vehicle on the side of the road.
