In Tennessee, many people spend their days on state highways traveling for work, going back and forth from jobs, and visiting friends and family. Time on the road, whether it be day or night, opens the opportunity for an accident. According to the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security, 47,987 crashes occurred from 2007 to the present. If a collision happens, victims of negligent driving can be left defenseless. This frightening situation brings up many big questions, including: “What’s next?” and “Who pays for this?”
Imagine driving along on a highway one day and someone hits your car. You are traveling with your loved one who does not survive the accident. You later find out from a police officer that the driver who hit your car was driving drunk.
Ridesharing services, like Uber or Lyft, crushed taxi competitors in 2017 and are still seeing growth with new apps popping up every day. But did you ever wonder, in the backseat of your Uber, what would happen if you got into a car accident right now?
