As rideshare drivers, we like to hope that something like this will never happen but there’s no denying the facts. Rideshare drivers are more likely to get into an accident (whether at-fault or not) since they are on the road more than your average driver. Today, RSG contributor Scott Van Maldegiam gives us a first hand account of what happens after you collide with a Chicago taxi driver.
Yes, I had the unpleasant experience of having a minor accident with a Chicago Taxi. I have heard many horror stories, but as I look back on it, it wasn’t so bad. It was a complete hassle but it could have been a lot worse. Here is my experience and the process I went through. I will also recommend what to do should it happen to you.
I was on a single lane street coming up to a T intersection with a stop light at about 11pm on a Friday night. The light was red and I was turning right to pick up a passenger. Yes, I was on ride request so UberX’s insurance was in effect.
