Ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft have become a popular choice for transportation in the Chicagoland area. And, unfortunately, because of its popularity, rideshare accident claims in Chicago have skyrocketed.
The legal landscape of a rideshare car accident will continue to shift as the industry continues to grow and evolve. There are city ordinances and statewide regulations that come into play with rideshare drivers and policies within Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies.
