Uber and Lyft Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Rideshare Accident Lawyers Representing Riders
As more and more people come to rely on Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies, the risk of being involved in an accident with one of these vehicles has also increased. In a much-cited study conducted by researchers from the University of Chicago and Rice University, the advent of rideshare services was correlated with an overall rise in traffic-related deaths by about two-to-three percent between 2011 and 2016. Although the data is not conclusive, it is safe to say that rideshare accidents have contributed to numerous injuries and deaths throughout the U.S.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents?
Like most other motor vehicle accidents, the majority of rideshare accidents are the result of negligence. Rideshare drivers do not have any special training and are just as susceptible to driving carelessly or recklessly as any other motorist.
Some of the most common causes of Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Using a cellphone/texting
- Unfamiliarity with routes/areas
- Being distracted while looking for a passenger
- Using a GPS or similar navigation device
- Failing to stop at red lights, stop signs, and other traffic control devices
- Unsafe or unlawful turns, including U-turns
- Illegal passing
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Failing to check blind spots
- Suddenly pulling out from curbs or entering lanes of traffic
- Unsafe merging and lane changes
In some cases, the rideshare driver is not the one responsible for an accident. Another motorist may cause a collision, or a bicyclist or pedestrian may act carelessly or recklessly and make the rideshare driver swerve into your motorcycle.
These cases tend to be much more complex than standard motor vehicle accident claims. It is important that you work with a knowledgeable attorney who has experience in this particular area of law.
At The Motorcycle Law Group, we work with teams of investigators, accident reconstructionists, expert witnesses, and other specialists to build powerful claims on behalf of our clients.
