New Hampshire Uber Accidents Lawyer
In June 2016, a new state law took effect in New Hampshire that replaced the patchwork of regulations enacted by such cities as Manchester and Portsmouth. Under the new law, ridesharing companies were required to conduct background checks on drivers, have a zero tolerance policy regarding drug and alcohol use by drivers, and provide commercial insurance for the vehicles.
When a person is involved in a crash caused by a negligent Uber or Lyft driver, it can be extremely confusing for the victim to figure out how to file a claim relating to his or her injuries. In many cases, the transportation network company (TNC) will deny liability.

New Hampshire Ridesharing Laws
Uber states that it provides $1 million of liability coverage per incident in New Hampshire, and such coverage is in effect from the moment a driver agrees to a trip until he or she drops that passenger off at his or her destination. Uber also provides $1 million of uninsured or underinsured coverage per incident for bodily injury caused by an uninsured or underinsured driver in an accident with an Uber vehicle.
Uber also covers driver liability for bodily injury up to $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident as well as $25,000 for property damage when the insurer for the driver’s personal policy declines to pay.
When an Uber or Lyft driver is not logged into a TNC network, then any accident that driver is involved in would be covered by the driver’s own personal insurance policy. In such cases, most drivers do not have satisfactory limits to pay the necessary damages.
TNCs such as Uber and Lyft wil often try to avoid liability for these accidents. Need an Injury Lawyer New Hampshire is familiar with the issues that can arise in ridesharing accident cases and works to help victims obtain all of the compensation they are entitled to.
