Helping Rideshare Accident Survivors Find the Best Legal Representation Nationwide
According to the University of Chicago and Rice University, the arrival of ridesharing is associated with an increase of 2-3% in the number of fatal motor vehicle accidents. In 2010, just before the ride-hailing services began to expand, the number of traffic fatalities was at its all-time low. However, after ride-share from Uber and Lyft started growing, the numbers slowly increased. Uber- and Lyft-related accidents can result in tragic, even fatal, injuries.

Common Causes of Uber & Lyft Accidents
Uber and Lyft like to motivate their drivers to stay on the road for as long as possible to have cars available for riders. The more rideshare vehicles that are on the road, the faster they can pick up passengers requesting services. That’s why Uber and Lyft allow drivers to work long hours. Uber won't lock drivers out of the program until they have reached 12 straight hours of driving, and Lyft requires drivers to take a 6-hour break only after reaching 14 hours in driver mode. If Uber and Lyft drivers work the maximum number of hours, they’ll end up carrying riders while fatigued.
Other common causes of Uber & Lyft accidents include:
- Aggressive driving/road rage
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Defective equipment
- Tired drivers
