While popular ridesharing services have just recently increased their popularity in municipalities across the US, the cars they use have been around for decades. Ridesharing accidents are fundamentally the same as other vehicular crashes. They can be caused by any number of the following:
Even more so than others, rideshare drivers are distracted much of the time. They are forced to use their phone for GPS routes, pick up other passengers and complete transactions. Rideshare drivers also typically converse with their passengers, which can also be distracting. Despite any amount of experience, this leaves the driver vulnerable to mistakes and errors behind the wheel which can lead to accidents for any driver. Each time the rideshare driver looks at their phone or engages in conversation their risk for a crash increases drastically.
Just like other car crashes, if you have been involved in a rideshare accident, contact law enforcement. The responding officer’s report will determine who is at fault.
