Ride-Sharing Risks for Your Company and Employees

Are there any sources of insurance recovery for riders using ride-sharing apps?

By Brian Mahon

When was the last time that you rented a car on a business trip? Although I never have, a large number of people use ride-sharing services. It is, after all, 2019. Cyber Monday is bigger than Black Friday, grocery shopping can be done online, and you are likely reading this digitally. In other words, the world that we live in is “on demand.” Thus, it’s not surprising that ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft dominate transportation needs, especially for those in an unfamiliar city.

This technology is fantastic, but have you ever thought about what would happen if one of your company’s employees was injured while “renting” an Uber or Lyft on a business trip? Are there any sources of insurance recovery? The answer may surprise you.
