I am a full time ride-share driver hit by a car and their insurance accepted fault. How can I be compensated for lost wages and are they responsible for paying upfront for a rental while vehicle is being repaired?

A Massachusetts attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. These can be tough settings. Sometimes liability is apportioned between both sides, depending on the negligence doctrines followed in the jurisdiction. Good luck
