What is Revel?
Revel is a company that has been dedicated to “electrifying cities” since 2018. The company started by offering electric mopeds (e-mopeds) in Brooklyn, which later expanded to multiple other U.S. cities. This year, the company launched an electric bicycle (e-bike) service which runs as a monthly subscription service in New York City and is projecting expansion in the future. The company also announced that they are planning a charging station for electric vehicles. The latest announcement was about their new all-electric rideshare service featuring Tesla Model Y vehicles.
Although Revel is dabbling in the rideshare industry, it is very different than other rideshare companies – specifically because it hires their drivers as employees and not independent contractors. Because drivers are employees, they are not required to have their own insurance coverage as the company takes care of everything.
The Risk of Car Accidents
Auto accidents are very common. They occur on a daily basis and can happen at any time that you are on the road. Typically, auto accidents are associated with the negligent actions of drivers. Some potential causes of car accidents can include the following:
- Ignoring traffic signals and laws
- Failing to yield when required
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving fatigued (falling asleep behind the wheel)
- Distracted driving
In addition, it is also possible for car accidents to occur as a result of dangerous conditions in the vehicle or dangerous conditions on the road.
Regardless of the cause of the incident, affected parties could suffer a number of injuries as a result of the incident.
The Injuries that Victims Could Suffer
Revel rideshare accidents could lead to a number of injuries. Some of the injuries that victims could suffer include the following:
- Head injuries

- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Joint injuries
- Nerve and ligament injuries
- Road rash
- Severed limbs
These injuries could result in only minor harm, but some could lead to permanent or even fatal injuries. Regardless of the harm resulting from the Revel auto accident, affected parties should explore their legal options – you might have grounds to sue.
