We Know Rideshares Are A Risk

The popularity of rideshare services like Uber and Lyft is skyrocketing, but with that increased success on their part means increased risk for you. More rideshare services are on the road, and that means more instances in which you could potentially be involved in an accident. Even away from the major cities in New Jersey, you’ll find several rideshare services available.

Getting into any rideshare can be a risky proposition. The vetting process for drivers isn’t exactly comprehensive. Even so, the low prices and convenience of this form of transportation can be hard to pass up. For many in New Jersey, abstaining from rideshare services simply isn’t feasible.

Given the necessity of rideshare services for so many people, it’s easy to see how it can be frustrating to deal with such a complicated compensation program. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping victims get the compensation they deserve. We’re experts on car accident law, so we won’t let any rideshare company or insurance provider get in the way of your justified payout.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us!

5 Star Reviews

I was in the car, I was the passenger, we were stopped about five cars back from the stop sign and all of the sudden we got hit from behind… And it was a girl that was talking on her cell phone. My car insurance said, ‘We’re not paying for anything else.’ My private health insurance said, ‘We’re not paying for anything else.’ Without a lawyer I would probably still be out there wondering why I was still hurting, why I was still having problems and what was I going to do? Peter has contacted the insurance companies. He has gone with me to doctor’s appointments. They have really gone above and beyond. We need people like Peter Davis to help us.

I was with my son about to get to the cash register and there was a puddle of water that I didn’t see and I slipped and fell. After I fell, I was in physical therapy for six months. I called Peter’s office and Peter started working for me right away. I don’t think the insurance company would have been fair with me if I didn’t have a good lawyer. I would recommend the Peter Davis law firm to anyone who was injured in an accident.

I was in a terrible car accident. Immediately after that, I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. The insurance company treated me unfairly. They refused to pay for my surgery and Mr. Davis made them. If you get into an accident, it’s very important for you to pick someone to be your voice and defend your rights and I suggest Mr. Davis. When I came to Mr. Davis, I was treated with respect, like I was one of his family members, and I really loved him for that.

I was driving in Hoboken and was preparing to stop at a stop sign and before I got to the stop sign, I was rear-ended. After the accident, I called Peter’s office and they started working for me right away. Large insurance companies are not looking out for the consumer. I needed Peter Davis to help me out. Mr. Davis fought hard for me and got me the money that I deserved.

I was driving on Route 46. A guy was on his cell phone and didn’t realize everyone had stopped or slowed in front of him, so full blast, he hit me in the back. After the accident, I called Peter’s office and he started working for me right away. Peter took the case to arbitration and forced the insurance company to give me a good settlement.

-Garland

I was at a red light and a driver came up behind and rear-ended my vehicle. Immediately after the accident, I called Peter Davis’ office and he started working on my case right away. His staff was very conscientious to the issue and I just felt very comfortable with dealing with his entire office. He really did a great job in helping me. First thing I would do is find yourself a good attorney like Peter Davis. Peter did a great job with the insurance company. He really fought hard for me.

How Insurance Works With Rideshare Services

Rideshare companies are well aware that accidents happen, so they’ve put some contingencies in place to protect their riders, drivers, and themselves. Every rideshare service comes with insurance that is often fairly generous, but insurance companies are never eager to actually pay what they’ve promised.

To better understand how insurance works with rideshare services, it’s important to grasp the three periods of a rideshare service. The amount of coverage you have depends on which stage the ride is in:

The first period is when a rideshare driver is on the job, but there’s currently no one requesting a ride. This would include all the periods in between rides whether the driver takes a half-hour break or takes just three seconds before accepting another request after completing a ride. During this period, rideshare services provide $25,000 of coverage on property damage and $50,000 per person for medical. The maximum amount paid out here won’t exceed $100,000 regardless of actual damages incurred.

The second period begins when a driver is on their way to pick up a passenger. Specifically, this includes the time from which the rideshare driver accepts a ride request up until the time the passenger is picked up. Coverage for this period includes liability for up to $1 million.

Once the passenger is in the vehicle and the driver is taking them to their destination, period three begins. Similar to period two, coverage here caps at $1 million. This period ends once the trip is completed.

Frequently Asked Questions

To put yourself in the best position to make a great case you must know what to do before you’re involved in an accident. Remember the following steps to take in the aftermath:

  • Make sure everyone is safe
  • Call the police
  • Gather evidence including photos and witness statements
  • Report the accident to the rideshare company
  • Call Peter N. Davis & Associates

Strictly speaking, the general rule doesn’t change depending on whether you’re a driver or a passenger. If you’re injured in the accident, and the accident wasn’t your fault, you’re entitled to compensation.

The limit of your compensation is ideally enough to cover the costs of your recovery. This includes obvious costs like property damage and medical bills, but it can also include lost wages and even less quantifiable costs like pain and suffering.

When you’re recovering from an accident, your focus should be on your health, not on fighting an insurance company for compensation you’re rightly owed. Hiring a personal injury lawyer who can handle rideshare accidents takes the burden of fighting for your rights off your shoulders, so you can focus on recovery.

The best part about working with Peter N. Davis & Associates is that you don’t have to pay for anything unless we win your case. We’ll even conduct a free review of your case, so contact us today.
