Common Causes For Uber/Lyft Accidents

As Uber and Lyft have become more popular as a means of transportation, the number of accidents involving them has also obviously increased.

Some reasons for an increase in these types of accidents include:

  • Distracted driving due to the drivers relying on the phone application for directions and to obtain new riders.
  • Uber and Lyft drivers will stop on the street wherever the GPS tells them too rather than in a safe area.
  • Rushing to new fares or to finish fares leading to speeding and other aggressive tactics that also lead to accidents.
  • Additional causes include lack of sleep, failure to properly maintain their vehicles, negligence while driving, and driving while intoxicated.

If you have been injured in an Uber accident as a passenger in Philadelphia you have the ability to not only have a claim against the driver but also an Uber accident lawsuit. Fortunately, Uber and Lyft have one million dollar insurance policies that can be accessed when a passenger or another driver is injured in an Uber or Lyft accident. The one million dollar policy is in stark contrast to the policies that taxis generally have which is $15,000.00. Common injuries in Uber and Lyft car accidents are obviously similar to those in all car accident. Often people injured in these accidents will have neck and back complaints in some cases fractures.
