You would be expecting that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have exceptional skills that complement their competence to get you to your desired destination safely, but unfortunately that isn't regularly the case. Studies show that since 2011 ride-sharing companies have increased traffic deaths in the US by 2%-3% (University of Chicago and Rice University), consequently you are at greater risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved in a traffic accident while a passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a rideshare?

Limousines and Cabs
Employing a traditional taxi or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been around so long, the legal complexities and processes are much more clear.

The major difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying company; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limousine services are usually locally owned or operated.Because cabs and limos are normally company/corporately owned, they may be regulated even more strictly and subject to higher standards of care.

Not only will this damage your vehicle, but since you are also "at rest" inside the vehicle, the "unbalanced force" will also act on your body like it does your car, creating a "whiplash" effect that can cause you serious trauma.The more rapidly the vehicle that hits you is going, the more potent the "unbalanced force" will be, and the greater the damage to you and your vehicle. It doesn't matter, however, if the vehicle that hits you is moving fast or slow, there will be damages, and you will need to contact us to assess that damage and your potential solutions.You need an ally who will fight for you and your protection under the law.
