Understanding Rideshare Accidents

Rideshare services in Addison like Uber and Lyft have revolutionized the transportation industry. But with this convenience comes a new set of legal issues. In the event of an accident, determining liability can be complex, as it may involve the driver, the rideshare company, or even another third party.

Liability in a Rideshare Accident: Another Driver

In situations where the rideshare driver is not at fault, the other driver involved is typically held responsible. When a negligent driver collides with a rideshare vehicle, causing injuries or damages, that driver is liable for any resulting expenses.

Liability in a Rideshare Accident: The Rideshare Driver

Of course, rideshare drivers are not infallible. They can also cause an accident, making them liable for any damages or injuries that result.

Insurance can get complicated for rideshare drivers. They are considered independent contractors, not employees of the rideshare company. As such, the driver is responsible for maintaining a personal auto insurance policy. Rideshare companies require their drivers to carry an insurance policy that covers. This policy covers accidents that occur in Addison while the driver is on the job.

However, rideshare drivers are usually covered by the rideshare company’s insurance, too. When they accept a job, their secondary insurance kicks in. It remains active from the moment they go to pick someone up to the moment they drop them off.

If a negligent rideshare driver has caused you harm, we can help you seek compensation from both the driver’s insurance and the rideshare company’s insurance policy. Our team can sort out the liability and hold the correct party responsible.

Liability in a Rideshare Accident: The Rideshare Company

Rideshare companies may also be held liable in an accident. These corporations have a responsibility to make sure their drivers are properly trained and qualified to be on the road.

Additionally, the rideshare company is responsible for making sure vehicles are safe and in proper working order. However, the driver is usually responsible for maintenance. If a rideshare wreck is the result of a poorly maintained vehicle, liability can be difficult to pinpoint.

Our team is here to put in the investigation and long hours needed for your case. We will work tirelessly to make sure the liable entities are held responsible, whether they are an individual or a company.

Navigating Scooter Accidents

Electric scooters, with their ease of use and accessibility, have become a popular mode of transportation in many urban areas. However, their proliferation has led to an increase in accidents, resulting in serious injuries.

Our experienced attorneys specialize in scooter accidents and can help you navigate the intricacies of these cases.

Liability in a Scooter Accident

In a scooter accident, many parties could be held responsible. It all depends on the situation.

An outside party, such as a driver or another scooter rider, could be at fault.

If you rented a scooter, and it was defective, the scooter company may be liable for damages. Even this situation is not as cut-and-dry as it sounds. The defect could come from the manufacturer, or it could come from the rental company renting out defective scooters.

Determining liability for a scooter accident requires a thorough investigation of the accident and the parties involved. We consider these accidents to be just as serious as a car wreck, and we won’t take your case lightly. Our MAS Law team are willing to put in the necessary work to hunt down the party responsible for your scooter-related injuries.
