Rideshare Accidents And The Verbal Threshold

The rise of Uber and Lyft has altered the landscape of personal travel. With new options, however, come new complications. Many people are uncertain what will happen if they are in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle.

The Verbal Threshold

Under New Jersey's no-fault insurance system, motorists who buy insurance have a choice between the zero threshold option and the verbal threshold option. The zero threshold means that accident victims are not limited in their ability to seek noneconomic damages. That includes pain and suffering. The verbal threshold does place a limit on these damages.

Accidents involving Uber and Lyft are rarely subject to the verbal threshold. Victims are generally able to seek full compensation for all damages suffered, including noneconomic damages. 

If you have been injured in a car crash involving a rideshare vehicle, either as a passenger or a driver in another vehicle, you need legal assistance. The ability to recover full damages can make all the difference in your ability to move forward after the accident.
