Protecting yourself as a rideshare driver

On Behalf of | May 6, 2017 | Taxi And Ride-Share Accidents

As a rideshare driver on the busy roads of Louisiana, you face a unique set of inherent risks stemming from your need to drive assertively in response to constant traffic issues. With efficient travel, you are able to realize more profit with a higher number of fares, but your personal protection is also critical. At Bruno & Bruno Trial Lawyers, we understand the implications of ridesharing and have helped many drivers to navigate the complications of liability and fault in the event of an accident.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners reminds ridesharing drivers like yourself that using your personal vehicle can complicate the process of determining liability in an accident. As a consequence, you could be left to pay for damages and injuries if not properly insured. Even worse, if you are hit by a driver who is uninsured or underinsured you could be completely responsible for the accident.

When you work for a transportation network company, you should spend time finding reliable insurance coverage. Most insurance companies now provide specific coverage that is customized to meet the unique risks of TNC drivers like yourself. Additionally, you can protect yourself in the event of an accident by keeping proof of your TNC coverage inside the vehicle you use for ridesharing. It is critical to invest in a reliable TNC policy if you do not want to be left to pay for damages and injuries in an accident.

Even though your job requires constant vigilance, you can protect yourself in a ridesharing accident by maintaining a gap-free insurance policy. Additional information about motor vehicle collision issues for ridesharing drivers is available on our web page.
