Causes of Uber and Lyft Accidents in Sierra Madre

Our Uber and Lyft accident lawyers have determined that most rideshare collisions typically involve some combination of the following: 

  • Distracted driving 
  • Impaired driving 
  • Speeding 
  • Driver fatigue 
  • Recklessness 
  • Violation of traffic laws 

Who is Liable?

Contrary to popular belief, it is rare that the rideshare platforms like Uber and Lyft will be the responsible parties in a collision. Both Uber and Lyft employ drivers as independent contractors – not employees. This means that, with a few exceptions, the companies are rarely responsible for their drivers’ conduct while transporting customers. 

If you are involved in a crash with an Uber or Lyft driver and you believe that your driver is responsible, we recommend contacting a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. We will investigate your accident and identify the liable party or parties. If it appears that the rideshare vehicle driver was indeed at fault, we will walk through each of the factors that determine which insurance policies will apply to your injuries so that you can earn the maximum amount of compensation possible.
