According to the latest data available from the Nevada Department of Transportation, we know that from 2015 to 2017, there were more than 100,000 total vehicle crashes on Los Vegas roadways. While we do not have solid data on how many of those crashes involved ridesharing services, we know they occur.
We have many ridesharing services in Las Vegas:
Getting coverage through ridesharing company’s insurance carriers after a crash can be complicated. Most companies tier their coverage based on what the driver is doing at the time of a crash. If they are not in service, the driver’s personal insurance carrier is responsible for all injuries and damages.
If a driver is in service but is waiting for a fare, the driver’s personal insurance is still the primary carrier. Rideshare companies may cover any additional costs.
If a driver has a fare or is on the way to pick one up, major rideshare services offer significant insurance policies for those injured. However, that does not mean they will offer a settlement quickly or easily.
