In this article on the Conversation website, Rob Nicholls discusses what happens if you have an accident in an Uber X car or if you are injured on holiday at an Airbnb apartment.

He concludes that, “[as] with many consumer protection issues, it’s likely it will be a high-profile failure such as a death that will trigger the introduction of change” and he offers one  solution that can be introduced now - that Uber and Airbnb must take responsibility for all relevant insurances and that their advertising must make this clear.
