Harry here. Insurance isn’t something most people think about until it’s too late, and that is especially true for rideshare insurance. Today, RSG contributor Scott Van Maldegiam shares a few real-life scenarios where rideshare insurance can play a huge role. In just the last few months, dozens of new options have become available for rideshare insurance, so I encourage you to get a quote from one of the agents on our rideshare insurance marketplace.
I get it. No one wants to think about what will happen in the case of an accident. As rideshare drivers, we are either apathetic or, more likely, burying our heads in the sand. When I first started out at as a rideshare driver, I was the latter. I had concerns about insurance and if I was covered, but the money was good so I put it in the back of my mind until… I had an accident with a taxi driver. I was not at fault, but the taxi did leave the scene. Thankfully, I was quick thinking and was lucky enough to have a witness who was willing to get involved. All my damages ($700) were covered, but I was lucky. The police officer who took the accident report said I was wasting my time and I would never recover a dime from a taxi insurance company. He was wrong because I was relentless, but this was a wake up call. Many drivers have received their own wake up calls regarding rideshare insurance but with worse results.
