Auto Accidents Involving Uber Or Lyft
Ridesharing services have exploded in popularity over the last several years. Clevelanders have enjoyed the convenience of using the apps on their smartphones to contact a driver to pick up them in minutes and take them to their destination. Drivers working for the company appreciate the income earning potential and setting their own schedule. But what happens if there is an accident involving an Uber or Lyft?
Unfortunately, with the popularity comes an increase in rideshare car accidents. If you have never utilized one of these services, you still need to consider the possibility that you could be in a crash where the other party involved is driving for Uber or Lyft.
