Ever wonder who is responsible for damages when vehicles driven by ride-hailing service professionals are involved in accidents, or, conversely, ever wonder what your own insurance requirements would be, should you decide to drive for one?

In 2017, there were 4,102 deaths caused by large truck accidents in California and throughout the country. The rate of fatal truck crashes is about three times higher than the overall fatal crash rate.

A further 68 percent of victims were occupants of cars or other passenger vehicles while the rest were pedestrians.
