If your a rideshare driver, its best that you get your business licence and have it posted somewhere on your car. It clearly states on the license that it must be posted in a conspicuous area.
The other worry, is rideshare insurance enough. Answer:No!
A recent rideshare driver was in an accident and his passenger sued him. The insurance covered damages as covered by his minimal amount. The driver now has to cover out of his pocket the rest. You may have seen the accident if you were at the airport. 3 cars and one into a wood sign. The car that crashed into the wood sign, his passenger has sued for $723,000 in damages including now a fear to be in a car. By the looks of it, the judge will grant her the lawsuit in her favor.
Rideshare insurance has a cap and you the affiliate are responsible for what is left over. So if your coverage only has up to 75,000, get comnercial INSURANCE then. May cost a bit more per month but the coverage is up to 5 million as a commercial driver and as an affiliate, that's what you are.

Don' let Uber or Lyft control you. Demand 3% to Rideshare companies or they pay for all insurance. Your csr, your rules... Not Theirs! Your an independent Affiliate. Not an employee so take a stand.

I cannot believe someone had to point this out. Although obviously the facts of the case are not stated either way if you are driving a vehicle for hire with strangers in the car it would be stupid not to carry commercial insurance or some type of umbrella policy.
