Transportation Networks (also known as rideshare services) are changing the way we commute and new Transportation Network Providers (TPNs) are cropping up in San Francisco and Paso Robles regularly. These rideshare services include companies like: Arro, Curb, Flywheel, Lyft, Sitbaq, SocialDrv, SuperShuttle, Uber, Wingz, and HopSkip Drive, a transportation service for kids. With the ease and convenience of requesting a rideshare service from our mobile phones, we expect a smooth ride to get us from Point A to Point B. But as with any mode of transportation, accidents may happen. Rideshare accidents with property damage and injuries resulting from a rideshare collision may land you in the middle of an insurance triangle that can be difficult to navigate on your own. This is why you’ll want a rideshare injury lawyer on your side to protect your rights and fight for you against the entities and insurance companies involved.
With rideshare injuries and accidents, there may be three or more entities involved which can create a dispute over liability and responsibility due to the intricacies of the Transportation Network Provider’s policies. The rideshare driver’s private insurance, the other collision party’s private insurance, and the TPN’s corporate insurance may all be involved. If a collision resulted from dangerous or defective roadways, then there may also be the involvement of the government entity which owns or possesses control over the roadway. Similarly, the vehicle manufacturer may be involved if a vehicle was defective in some way. As a passenger or as a driver for a rideshare program, this much complexity can be overwhelming and we understand the need for experienced support from a rideshare injury lawyer.
