Accidents Involving UBER or LYFT

by ih-awi admin
Ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber have exploded over the past couple of years. They have been attributed to everything from reducing drunk driving rates to putting taxi companies out of business. Most people use them as a convenient way of getting around town with the ease of calling for a ride on their smartphone, without having to deal with calling a dispatcher, handling cash, or trying to find a taxi with a working credit card machine. However, there is one thing these app-based services cannot change, and that is the danger of automobile accidents. Since these ride services are so new, many people do not know how to deal with things like car accidents or injuries involving an Uber or Lyft ride. Passengers injured in an Uber or Lyft ride accident may not know what to do after an accident. Other drivers who get into an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver may not know if the driver or the company is responsible for the damages.
