First Uber, Now Lyft: Insurance Issues

San Francisco News outlets reported yesterday of Lyft-operated vehicle who allegedly struck a pedestrian in the Nob Hill neighborhood.  The pedestrian was later taken to a hospital for a leg injury and is not believed to have suffered life-threatening injuries.

The accident comes just two weeks after a fatal car accident in San Francisco involving an Uber driver.  Ride-sharing companies such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar have gained increasing attention in recent weeks for public safety and adequacy of insurance coverage for accident victims.
