New Jersey Uber Accident Lawyers

Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), such as Uber and Lyft, in New Jersey must adhere to certain standards to operate in the Garden State. With the advent of the “Transportation Network Company Safety and Regulatory Act (A-3695/S-2179),” which became effective May 1, 2017, uniform regulations were enacted. According to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC), the Act “establishes safety and insurance requirements for TNCs that conduct business in New Jersey in order to protect drivers as well as the riding public.”

Additionally, the MVC’s website notes: “A TNC operating in the State of New Jersey is required to apply to the MVC for a permit to operate. Effective 12/11/17, the MVC will open its permit period and will begin accepting permit applications pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:5H-4(e).”

The 2017 Act required these ride-sharing companies to carry $1.5 million of liability coverage and $1.5 million uninsured/underinsured coverage when a passenger is in the vehicle (it was previously set at $1 million of coverage for both categories).

Sadly, many passengers and Uber/Lyft drivers have been seriously injured in auto accidents, or worse, a loved one is killed in an accident involving a ride-sharing vehicle.
