Whether you live in a city where a lack of street parking and the high cost of paid parking makes it impossible to own a car or you’re visiting a new place and you’re loath to shell out major cash for a car rental you’re barely going to use, you may find ride-sharing services to be convenient.

If you like to drive yourself, Turo offers an ideal opportunity, as this platform allows you to rent a privately-owned vehicle for short-term use at less cost than full-day rentals from traditional services like Hertz or Enterprise.

Unfortunately, these services are still in relative infancy, which means the rules regarding accident liability can be a bit hazy. As a result, you may not know what to do if you’re a driver or passenger in a Turo rental, especially when an accident occurs through the negligence of others or if you’ve been injured in an accident where a Turo driver was at fault.

While there’s not yet a lot of data on Turo accidents specifically, there were over 6.7 million police-reported motor vehicle traffic crashes in the U.S. in 2019, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These accidents resulted in over 2.7 million injuries and over 36,000 deaths. It’s no stretch to imagine that some of these accidents involved rideshare vehicles.

Any time you’re injured in an accident through no fault of your own, you might find yourself dealing with a lot more than physical recovery. You may have mental and emotional trauma related to the incident. Trying to fight an uphill battle against insurance providers that use stall tactics like delaying or denying your claim can be frustrating, to say the least.

Even worse, the involvement of a ridesharing service can cloud issues of liability, so you may not know exactly who’s responsible for your medical bills and other expenses. This is why finding qualified Turo accident attorneys is so important.

Causes of Turo Accidents

In some cases, accidents are just a matter of circumstance, such as a driver slipping on wet or icy pavement or swerving to avoid an obstacle in the road. Sometimes, a vehicle malfunction is to blame. However, there are also instances in which drivers behave negligently, putting them at fault.

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

In the case of Turo drivers causing accidents specifically, collisions could also be related to unfamiliarity with the vehicle. The qualified Turo accident lawyers at The Ruth Law Team can help you to determine what caused the accident in order to pinpoint who is likely to be liable.
