UBER/lyft Drivers- BEWARE!

UBERlyft

Ride hailing services continue to grow.  General Motors recently invested $500 million in Lyft, and, today bought the remains of Sidecar.  While many people like the services provided, the insurance industry continues to struggle with coverage vs. no coverage.  The standard Massachusetts personal auto insurance policy does not provide ANY coverage while your car is being used as a livery-type vehicle – which, in Massachusetts, includes Uber, Lyft, etc.  If you drive for one of these services, you should be aware that you will have to rely solely on the insurance coverage provided by the ride hailing (Uber, Lyft, etc.) company.
