Ride sharing programs are all the rage these days, and everyone is excited to make that extra coin. Most people engaging in ride sharing programs are not informing their personal insurance companies of the additional use of their vehicle, and that becomes a problem if you are at fault for an accident. The good news is that these ride sharing programs have their own insurance policies and will accept liability for property damage and personal injury on your behalf. The bad news is that you probably won’t be driving for them any longer. Additionally, your personal insurance company might also drop you because you didn’t inform them that you were using your car for ride sharing programs, and this leaves you scrambling for new insurance and no possible future options with Uber or Lyft. Consider all your options before driving with any ride sharing program.
