Ridesharing Accident Cases: Liability and Insurance Coverage

October 27

Understand the liabilities and insurance coverage that takes place within ridesharing options.

How do you handle a ride share app case – is it an auto case, an agency/apparent case, an insurance coverage case, or all of the above? This topic will help attorneys evaluate potential ride share app cases at the initial intake; evaluate the facts necessary to determine liability (the ride share app driver? A third-party driver?); anticipate, determine, and prevail in coverage disputes; and protect themselves from overreaching languages that are becoming standard in releases.

Agenda

Ride Share Cases Are Auto Negligence Cases … With Complexities
  • Treat the Liability Aspect of the Case as You Would Any Auto Negligence Case
  • Evidence to Gather to Establish Who Was at Fault
  • Damages Suffered by Your Client
But Then, Coverage Issues
  • Period 1 (No Coverage)
  • Period 2 (Coverage)
  • Uim Coverage for Ride Share App Versus Your Client(Passenger)'S Own Uim
  • Individual Liability Policy of a Driver Who Was Not Covered Under the App (Beware of Exclusions)
Coverage Disputes – Is It a Fact Question?
  • Was the Driver Logged in to the App When the Accident Occurred?
  • Had the Ride Been Canceled
  • Were the Driver and Prospective Passenger in Communication After the Ride Was Canceled in the App?
  • Evidence to Gather to Support Your Coverage Claim
Be Wary of the Release
  • Read the Terms of the Release Carefully and Refuse to Sign Any Terms That Overreach
