Collision While Ubering? What You Need To Know About Coverage.

Ride-sharing options, such as Uber, have exploded in popularity since Uber's release date in 2009 (originally called Ubercab). The increase in popularity means more and more automobile collisions involving Uber and other ride sharing vehicles.

In addition to using standard defenses, Uber has been known to fight lawsuits using coverage defenses.

How Does No-Fault Insurance Work In Kentucky?

Kentucky is one of several states that uses a "No-Fault" system for motor vehicle accident. What this means is that if you're involved in an accident in Kentucky, you will have coverage for medical bills, lost wages and other costs, no matter who is at fault for the accident.

In Kentucky, No-Fault benefits are known as Personal Injury Protection, i.e. PIP.

How Long Can You Wait to File a Car Accident Claim in Ohio?

After a car accident that causes injuries or property damage, people naturally have plenty of questions about settlement and car accident litigation.
