Accidents involving equipment failure can result in higher settlements. Our best advice is to at least talk to a personal injury lawyer if you have been in an accident with a commercial vehicle.

Uber and Lyft Accidents

Accidents involving ride-sharing companies takes on a level of complexity. All ride-sharing services requires their drivers to maintain personal insurance. The company insurance only kicks in as secondary insurance. This only happens under certain circumstances. The driver must be “available” for a ride or actually providing a ride. If they are in an accident during these times, both services have a $1 million insurance policy to help cover damages. There are many more legal hurdles to overcome. If you have been injured in a ride-sharing accident, contact an attorney. Whether you were hit or a passenger, you may be able to get further compensation from the company.

DoorDash and GrubHub Accidents

Like ride-sharing services, on-demand delivery drivers like these are covered by commercial insurance policies. Similarly, their insurance policies only activate when the driver is “working.” Their phone app must be “on” looking for delivery opportunities. They could also be actively delivering the product. If they are in a bad accident during these times, the commercial policy may cover additional damages. A personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you more. If you have been injured in an accident with an on-demand driver, talk to an attorney. An experienced personal injury lawyer will know who and how to go after the highest settlement for your case.
