Keating Law Offices' Tom Reuland Authors Article On The Dangers of Uber and Lyft

Trial Journal, the leading print publication of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, published an article by Attorney Tom Reuland of Keating Law Offices in its Winter 2018 volume. The article addresses important implications for car crashes involving ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft.
In his article, Tom Reuland analyzes Illinois' law on rideshare companies, the Transportation Network Providers Act, and discusses its nuances and application to personal injury cases in Chicago and Illinois. This Act is an important tool for people injured in a Chicago car crash to integrate into their litigation strategy. The Act’s insurance provisions can change the settlement and trial outcomes for people hurt in car crashes in Illinois with Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing companies.  Not knowing all the laws and statutes applicable to a client’s injury can lead some attorneys to not fully compensate their clients for the harms that a motor vehicle collision can cause.
