With operations in more than eight metropolitan areas in the United States, including Los Angeles and San Francisco, HopSkipDrive is a safe transportation commute service for children. The need for HopSkipDrive arose when Uber and other rideshare services restricted access to their services for passengers below 18 years of age.

With HopSkipDrive, working moms and other single parents can schedule rides on behalf of their children. Many parents or guardians find the service helpful in transporting latch-key kids to and from their traditional or foster home, including rides to doctor’s appointments and other organized extracurricular activities.

The company provides safe and reliable transportation solutions for scheduling rides for children, students, seniors, and other clients seeking convenience. (Driver fingerprinting, driver photographs, and California state’s minimum requirements for a valid driver’s license.)

This includes parents, school districts, and government and non-profit organizations. Although the company provides a safe youth transportation solution, accidents can happen anywhere. But what does an accident while using HopSkipDrive entail?

How Safe Is HopSkipDrive?

In the recent report published by the company, HopSkipDrive has recorded many hours transporting families and their loved ones to and from schools, the market, and even foster care, with over 12.38 million miles and more than five decades. Consumers can be somewhat reassured by statistics deciphering millions of miles; around 99.5% of the rides are completed safely.

Health and safety are the most critical factor for professional moms and dads seeking an independent ridesharing service to manage senior citizen transportation to a Bingo game or child transport to and from a private or public school, depending on their case.

Our lawyers advise the .5% who suffer severe injury or death after an accident or fight for their lives against an abusive driver or dangerous co-passenger.

Safe Ride Support Technology

The company takes pride in its innovative, safe ride support technology, safety features, and stringent background check measures to ensure safety for all passengers.

Although the company has a positive track record, it is like any other ridesharing company with a human steering the vehicle and operating it unsafely. Susceptible to riding errors and negligence, accidents can occur without warning, maiming, or killing a victim.

Parents need to know the risks of using ridesharing industry services if someone in their family is hit in a road accident. If injuries occur, parents need to know they can receive a just settlement with good enough results to cover the defendant’s share of the lawsuit with high priority to your consumer needs.

HopSkipDrive’s Uninsured Motorist Coverage and Insurance Limits

In the past year, there have been several HopSkipDrive accidents involving other negligent drivers crashing into HopSkipDrive vehicles. Fortunately, no children have gotten hurt from such car accidents.

To ensure the safety of children and their drivers on the ridesharing platform, HopSkipDrive provides children with the following entitled means of insurance coverage:

  • Liability coverage: HopSkipDrive provides up to a million dollars in third-party liability coverage for bodily injuries and property damage.
  • Physical damage coverage: HopSkipDrive provides bodily damage coverage for all vehicles if the rideshare driver is at fault. However, all drivers must have personal collision and comprehensive coverage for that coverage to kick in.
  • Uninsured motorist coverage: For any accidents involving uninsured motorists, the HopSkipDrive provides uninsured motorist insurance.

Who Is Responsible for the Car Accident When Using HopSkipDrive?

When using HopSkipDrive, parents want to know who will take responsibility in the case of car accidents. During the accident, rideshare companies accept responsibility for any damages to passengers, third-party victims, and drivers.

However, the degree of compensation a rideshare company pays depends on the different circumstances. The driver or the third-party insurance company insurance coverage might come into play in certain situations.

This is because rideshare drivers, like other platforms such as Uber and Lyft, are contractors in the eyes of HopSkipDrive. Contractors are not company employees. Any accidents due to them can not hold the company responsible unless the accident occurred while the contractor was on the job.

Passenger Injuries on a Rideshare Platform

The passenger’s responsibility lies with the company, regardless of who is at fault. If the rideshare driver is at fault, the company will compensate the passenger for any injuries or damages done to them. Still, if a third party is at fault, the rideshare company will deal with the third-party insurance company to get you the compensation you deserve.

If the third-party insurance is insufficient to cover the rideshare passenger’s damages, HopSkipDrive will pay for any additional damages through its underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage.

Third-party Injuries Due to Rideshare Driver

The same rule applies to the third-party person if the rideshare driver is at fault. The company will pay for the damages done to the third party. However, the rideshare driver’s insurance policy will kick in for any damages over the $1 million coverage limit.
