Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents

Rideshare accidents can be caused by the same reasons as other types of motor vehicle accidents. Other drivers may act negligently in causing a crash. However, due to the nature of the rideshare business, some particular risks of rideshare drivers are:

  • Speeding as drivers are incentivized to get to as many rides as possible to increase their pay
  • Distractions as drivers follow directions and listen to alerts from their phones
  • Inexperience as the requirements to drive for Lyft are minimal
  • Fatigue as many rideshare drivers work for Lyft as a second job and may be tired from their other work
  • Confusion about road signs and traffic patterns in unfamiliar routes

Our experienced Lyft accident lawyers can thoroughly investigate your case to determine how your accident occurred and who is responsible for it.

How to Prove Fault in a Lyft Accident

Whether you want to establish the rideshare driver or another driver was at fault for the accident, you will need strong evidence to prove your claim. In Encino, the at-fault party is responsible for compensating victims for their negligence.

Strong evidence that may be able to help you prove your claim includes:

  • Accident reports
  • Photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and property damage
  • Physical evidence, such as skid marks and broken car parts
  • Videos from red light cameras, dash cams, or nearby surveillance footage
  • Witness statements
  • Vehicle maintenance and repair records
  • Reports after the vehicles are inspected or repaired
  • Vehicle event data recorder information
  • Cell phone records
  • GPS records

Our experienced team knows the value of this evidence and will work hard to preserve it.
