The convenience and technology that we can easily access has grown significantly in recent years thanks to improvements in cellphones and a wide range of applications these phones support. Some of the most practical apps involve ride sharing services such as Uber or Lyft, allowing users to request a vehicle, get a ride somewhere and get dropped off with only a few clicks or swipes on a smartphone.
These services have quickly become popular among users who might otherwise take a taxi, walk, ride a bus or find another method of transportation to get around metro Atlanta. For all their convenience, however, using Uber or Lyft has the potential to turn into a nightmare if your ride is involved in a car accident.
Sometimes these accidents are the fault of a negligent or tired Uber or Lyft driver and sometimes they're the fault of someone else. At The Carnell Law Firm, we are prepared to handle cases involving a rideshare injury claim such as an accident in a vehicle contracted with Lyft, Uber or a similar service. Our lawyers will work to hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries.
Attorneys For Uber/Lyft Accidents In Atlanta
Nobody deserves to be injured as a result of the negligence of the driver of a Lyft or Uber vehicle. While most drivers who work for these services are careful and conscientious, others may be less reliable. By and large, drivers of rideshare vehicles are not professional drivers. They are people who are looking to pick up some extra income through a second job or a temporary full-time job until they are able to find other work.
This means that they may be inexperienced drivers, are unfamiliar with basic car maintenance or do not have adequate insurance. They could also be overworking themselves between multiple jobs and be less careful than safe drivers due to sleep deprivation. Any or all of these factors could come into play should an accident occur.
