What Causes of Uber and Lyft Accidents/
Traffic accidents are a common occurrence and result from factors ranging from weather to distracted driving. Even your location can result in an increased chance of a car accident.
In Akron, some of the more dangerous locations in the city are the intersections of:
East Market Street and Mogadore Road/Interstate 76 ramps
South Maple Street and Rhodes Avenue
South Broadway and East Thornton Street
The things that make ridesharing services so appealing like GPS and customer interaction can also result in the driver becoming distracted, leading to a higher probability of a car accident.
Rideshare drivers are not only required to have personal insurance but additional insurance coverage as well.
In states like Ohio, Uber and Lyft drivers must have $1 million per incident excess liability coverage. The level of coverage changes according to the status of the driver.
When the driver has the app turned on, a lower level of coverage applies, but when the driver accepts a fare, the level increases. These level changes can lead to complications and disputes with insurance companies.
Passengers who sustain injuries related to an Uber or Lyft accident deserve the chance to hold the at-fault party accountable. A skilled attorney can guide you through the legal process, help you get treatment, negotiate with the insurance companies, and fight for everything you deserve.
