Since the “L” word has been thrown out, let’s take a moment to ask: Who are you gonna believe?
Who are you gonna believe? Uber, a multinational transportation company that has publicly denied being such in a San Francisco court of law in order to avoid financial exposure as part of the Sofia Liu wrongful-death lawsuit? Or, 20 separate state insurance departments composed of government workers whose charge is to prevent their state’s citizenry from being harmed by unsafe insurance?
I mean: Those government workers don’t really have a dog in this fight.
All this is prelude to the fact that the Louisiana Department of Insurance released a consumer alert advising both drivers and passengers in the state to beware of the insurance provided by so-called ‘ridesharing’ companies Uber and Lyft. With this most recent consumer warning, the number of states warning their consumers about ‘ridesharing’ insurance rises to 19 plus the District of Columbia—fully one third of the country.
