Taxi, Uber, and Lyft Accidents
Rideshare services are becoming more popular in America and the world each day. Uber cars provide 5.5 million trips per day, and Lyft provides another 1 million+ trips. While the rates of accidents involving Uber and Lyft cars and Yellow taxi cabs are lower than other vehicle types, rates are increasing as these services become more popular. In addition, the injuries sustained by their passengers are often more severe than those suffered by passengers of other vehicles.
Some of the common reasons for taxi and rideshare accidents include:
- Driver distraction
- Failure to yield
- Driver Fatigue
- Driving Under the Influence of drugs or alcohol
- Mechanical issues
If you were a passenger in a taxi or rideshare car, or a pedestrian, cyclist, or occupant of another vehicle and you were injured in an accident involving a cab, Lyft, or Uber car, you may be eligible for compensation beyond your basic economic losses.
