Causes for Ride Sharing Accidents
Car accidents can occur at any time. Whether you are traveling in a ridesharing vehicle such as an Uber or Lyft, the likelihood of being involved in a collision remains the same. However, as common carriers, drivers of these vehicles are expected to maintain the utmost safety of their passengers.
In addition to a driver’s carelessness, there are further causes for a ridesharing accident. Here are some of the most common causes:
- Speeding while transporting a passenger
- Driving while intoxicated or fatigued
- Distracted driving
- Disobeying traffic signs, lights, and rules
- Aggressive driving
Causes for accidents can also include poor weather conditions, improper maintenance of the vehicle, tailgating and not providing sufficient space for the car ahead, failure to yield the right of way, and other circumstances.
Who Is to Be Held Liable?
As independent contractors, drivers are expected to have their own insurance. However, in some cases, such as an absence of commercial insurance, Uber or Lyft’s policy may take effect. Accountability is difficult to prove, but with legal representation, the process can be streamlined.
You Pay No Upfront Costs
We know the pain and difficulties that occur with ridesharing accidents. Therefore, to limit any further stress, we request no money upfront. Instead, we provide reliable legal representation on a contingency-fee basis. There are no out of pocket fees.
