    By 2019 there were nearly four million Uber drivers worldwide, growing from only 160,000 in the U.S. five years previously. With more ridesharing drivers on the road, and with these drivers spending more time on the road, the number of car accidents involving ridesharing drivers has grown.

    Even though it is a relatively new concept and business model, it is obvious that ridesharing is changing the way we travel. As accidents involving ridesharing drivers become more common, finding the correct way to allocate liability between drivers and ridesharing companies for injuries caused in car accidents is becoming a pressing necessity. To help attorneys in this developing area of the law, Ridesharing Law and Liability is a useful "how-to" guide for handling the key elements of ride-sharing litigation.

    This state-of-the-art book covers important information for handling legal cases involving this developing industry, including emerging theories in ride-sharing liability as well as the regulations and case law that affect the ride sharing industry. Topics include:

    • Regulations that affect ridesharing companies--municipal, state, and federal- and their impact on litigation
    • Practical guidance for litigating a ridesharing case, from issues in evidence preservation to effective complaints to a framework for discovery request and more
    • Insurance coverages for drivers from both ridesharing companies and insurance providers
    • Autonomous vehicles and the future of liability issues
    • The impact of COVID-19 on the ridesharing industry

    Additional authors:

    Chapter 2: The Regulatory Landscape of Transportation Network Companies (pages 7-56) was written by Karen Oill Moury, Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellott, LLC, Harrisburg, PA.

    Chapter 4: Ridesharing Law and Liability – the section "Liability Theories Premised on Trademark Ownership and Licensing" (pages 122-141) was written by Kenneth B. Germain and Sean K. Owens of Wood Herron & Evans LLP, Cincinnati, OH.
