The Smartest Tool To Help Protect Ride-Sharing Drivers In An Accident

“I drive for a ride sharing company, so I’m on the road all the time. How do I limit my liability to frivolous lawsuits?”

More people are on the road than ever as ride-sharing drivers supporting their income. With more drivers inevitably come – you guessed it – more accidents. While some assume that ride-share drivers are always at fault, that’s not necessarily the case.

We recently suggested that drivers invest in a dashboard camera to more accurately capture the events of an accident. It makes a great deal of sense to apply as a solution for ride-sharing drivers too. A GoPro or similar quality camera is as good as any in this category to take a video of the accident you’re in.

Your ride-sharing company should already have certain policies in place from a liability standpoint, but having a camera literally brings a more accurate picture of how events unfolded, which is useful everywhere from the crash site to, if necessary, the courtroom.
