Holding Reckless Rideshare Drivers Responsible
The ridesharing industry has exploded over the last 10 years with the launch of companies, and their apps, such as Uber, Lyft and Sidecar. However, ridesharing can actually be tied back to the 1600’s with taxi services via horse and carriage. Then the 1900’s with the first car-based taxi service. The big difference with the first car-based service and today’s rideshare services are that today’s services are provided by freelance drivers who use their personal cars to pick-up and transport customers who have contacted them via an app.
With the creation and launch of rideshare apps, you see more and more rideshare drivers are on the road. This means there is a greater chance for someone to be involved in a rideshare accident. However, since this industry is still relatively new, there are a lot of unanswered questions about who is responsible if you are injured in an accident while using a rideshare driver.
