However, for many others, there are risks and complications associated with the use of ridesharing services. Motor vehicle accidents involving ridesharing drivers can be difficult to resolve due to the multiple parties and complicated insurance policies involved. Furthermore, although different laws exist in each state about vetting drivers, there is still the potential for crimes to be committed by the ridesharing drivers themselves.
In an effort to better understand both the benefits and risks of ridesharing, we took a look into what is commonly known as the "Ridesharing Revolution" in the United States.

Vehicle on vehicle collisions are not the only hazards that accompany ridesharing. Pedestrians are also at risk of being injured by distracted or erratic rideshare drivers. Furthermore, there have been accounts of violence and sexual assault against passengers by their drivers, as well as instances of people impersonating ridesharing drivers to pick up passengers.
