Uber and Lyft Ridesharing Services

Sign indicating Uber and Lyft pickupThere are many ridesharing companies, but two have emerged as leading companies: Uber and Lyft.

Uber and Lyft have both evolved to provide many services. Uber and Lyft customers have plenty of options to choose from — from a ride in a luxury vehicle to food delivery from their favorite restaurant. There’s a lot to know about Uber and Lyft ridesharing services with regard to the companies themselves, public concerns, and what to do if you’ve been in a rideshare accident.

Uber and Lyft

Uber and Lyft are the two most well-known companies dominating the rideshare market.

Despite the competition between Uber and Lyft, these two rideshare companies offer a similar service and experience. They both function as an alternative to public transportation by allowing customers to hail a ride through a smartphone. Uber and Lyft passengers are matched with drivers and charged for their trip through a digital app.

Issues with Uber and Lyft Ridesharing Services

There are a few potential concerns regarding Uber and Lyft ridesharing services. For one, ridesharing services are not regulated as commercial businesses. Rideshare companies are legally categorized as “Transportation Network Companies” (TNCs).

TNCs are subject to unique insurance regulations, so insurance coverage may vary depending on the precise circumstances of the accident. The source and amount of available insurance coverage can differ depending on those circumstances.  For example, the amount of available insurance will depend on whether the driver application was off, the driver was available or waiting for a ride request, or en route to pick up riders, or in the course of a trip with riders. An experienced attorney can examine the facts of your case and identify all applicable insurance.
