The popularity of ride-sharing services, such as Lyft and Uber, have provided pedestrians alternative transportation to get to their destination. While ride share services may offer an inexpensive and convenient way for people to get around Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, they also pose certain risks.
Unlike taxis, which are heavily regulated at the city and county levels, rideshare services fall under the newly created category of “transportation network companies“. They therefore evade much of the strict scrutiny that cab companies receive.
As we all know, accidents can happen. In these rare instances it can get complicated and confusing if your “ride” ends up in a collision with another driver or pedestrian. What happens if you’re struck by one of these ride-sharing cars while operating your own vehicle? Not only do you need to understand your rights as a victim, it’s important to have an attorney that understands this type of case.
A normal car accident is stressful enough without considering the special circumstances of a ride sharing service.
