Accidents when using a rideshare service
The world of public transport has been forever changed with the appearance of companies that offer taxi services through an application, making transport accessible from any place and time. It has been an incredibly convenient development for society. These services are usually as safe as a regular taxi or driving yourself. But, what if you are involved in an accident while using this service? How is guilt determined?
If you use Uber, Lyft, or similar companies, the company will be responsible for covering all expenses. Under California law, all drivers must have insurance to protect their passengers, and the company provides this. But in these types of cases, there are many factors to consider in determining guilt, which makes them complex cases.
There has been some confusion with this issue, as there are many different situations that can affect the case. For example, if the driver was out of business hours at the time of the accident or if the accident happened on the way to pick up a customer. Situations like this complicate the liability of an accident.
This is counting on the company providing each of the drivers with accident and health insurance. If this type of insurance is not available, then the accident is considered like any accident that does not involve insurance companies.
