What is Peer-to-peer Ridesharing?
Peer-to-peer ridesharing, also known as transportation network companies, offer a unique, affordable and quality alternative form of transportation to the ordinary taxi cab service. The drivers are “hailed” by way of a smartphone application and the drivers are independent business owner/operators. Ridesharing has been a hot topic of interest in recent years as taxi companies and consumer safety groups lobby for stricter regulations.
There have been national headline stories reporting on stories of passengers being injured, assaulted, raped, kidnapped, injured or killed because of a dangerous or negligent rideshare driver. Although some of these occurrences are rare, accidents are common due to a lack of regulations, training and outright greed.
Rideshare Accidents Caused by a Third Party
Not all accidents involving a rideshare service are the fault of the rideshare driver. In many traffic collisions, a rideshare driver may also be the victim of another’s negligent or reckless driving. If you were involved in a car crash as a passenger in an Uber, Lyft or other rideshare driver’s car, it is imperative that you obtain photos, insurance information, names and contact details of all the parties involved in the accident – not just your driver’s details. This is because you may have a claim against the non-rideshare driver or all drivers involved in the accident. In some states, the percentage of fault must be determined. A judge or jury may be required to determine this. It is vital that you obtain all of the information for every driver involved in your rideshare accident to protect yourself from financial losses.
If you believe that your injuries were the result of a reckless driver or the driver of another vehicle involved in your accident, call FH Law Group at (817) 697-4400 and receive your free and confidential consultation today.
