As rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft become increasingly popular across South Carolina, the number of rideshare accidents has also increased. Unfortunately, rideshare drivers are employed as independent contractors. This makes these types of car accidents extraordinarily complex because they involve determining whose insurance company is liable for the damages. Will your injuries and expenses be covered under the rideshare company umbrella policy or will the “at fault” driver’s insurance company be responsible? This is an important question to answer because policy limits vary wildly. As such, determining liability is crucial after a rideshare accident.
Rideshare laws and liabilities are complicated and difficult to navigate without the help of an experienced personal injury law firm. At the Law Offices of F. Craig Wilkerson, Jr., our attorneys have successfully represented injured South Carolina rideshare accident victims for years. We know that an extensive investigation into rideshare accidents is a crucial component of collecting the evidence needed to establish clear liability.
