The rise in popularity of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft has ushered in an increased risk of accidents and injuries occurring on the road. According to the 2018 University of Chicago Booth School of Business research study “The Cost of Convenience: Ridesharing and Traffic Fatalities,” the rise of the ridesharing industry has been associated with a 2-3% increase in the number of motor vehicle fatalities and fatal accidents.
As a consumer of these services, it is important to understand that Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare drivers are not exempt from safety rules and insurance regulations; they can and should be held accountable for any injuries they inflict due to negligence.

The Complexity of Rideshare Accident Claims
Lyft and other rideshare accidents are often very complex in nature, due to the multiple parties involved and the various scenarios in which the accident may have occurred. For example, you could have been a passenger in the Lyft at the time of the accident. Or, perhaps you were the driver of the car that was hit by the rideshare vehicle. Alternatively, maybe you were an innocent pedestrian who was struck by a Lyft driver’s vehicle.
There are a number of ways that Lyft and other rideshare accidents can occur, all of which can unfortunately leave you injured and in need of compensation. As long as the rideshare driver was at fault, you may be eligible for compensation.
Trust the personal injury lawyers at The Traub Law Office to get you the compensation that you deserve. Once we have solidly assembled your accident and injury case, we will fight to get you fair compensation. This process includes dealing with insurance companies, sending demand letters to responsible parties, and going to court on your behalf, if necessary.
