With the rapid growth of technology, rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are being used more than ever. Many drivers rely on these services as a means to conveniently work on the side, and many passengers rely on these services as a means to go somewhere while their personal vehicles are not available at the moment.
Unfortunately, as the number of rideshare users has increased, rideshare accidents have increased as well. If you have been involved in a rideshare accident, as a driver or a passenger, Kistler Law Firm can help you get the responsible driver accountable and collect compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages.
Causes of Rideshare Accidents
Just like regular people who drive to work or the grocery store, many rideshare drivers get into accidents. However, rideshare drivers are particularly susceptible to driving recklessly to increase the revenue they make on Uber or Lyft.
Common causes of rideshare accidents include:
- Distracted driving, particularly when adding an additional passenger while a current passenger is still on board
- Speeding to the passenger’s destination
- Driving under the influence
- Unsafe lane changes
- Improper turns Help is Available
If you are a passenger in any vehicle, there is not much you can do besides helping make sure your driver stays alert during a long commute. However, being alert cannot protect you from a negligent, reckless, or aggressive driver. If you have been injured in a rideshare accident, please contact Kistler Law Firm to speak with a rideshare accident attorney about your rights to recover compensation for the harm done to you.
