Rideshare services like Opoli are a common part of everyday life throughout the San Jose area. Commuters use rideshare companies for transportation to and from work or to travel to events around the city. Tourists also make use of Opoli services on a regular basis.
Opoli drivers provide a convenience for us in San Jose, but they are also at risk of causing motor vehicle accidents.

If you suffer personal injuries during the motor vehicle collision, seek medical attention as soon as possible after the accident.
