PHOENIX LYFT ACCIDENT
Although moderately less popular than Uber, Lyft has emerged as another leader in the rideshare industry. In the last year, Lyft provided over one billion rides. With so many rides provided, it's no wonder that rideshare companies have been responsible for a significant increase in car accidents and traffic deaths. If you have been injured in a Lyft accident, contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Enara Law.
LYFT GROWING IN POPULARITY IN
ARIZONA AND NATIONWIDE
Despite Uber’s emergence as the rideshare market leader, Lyft’s emergence hasn't gone unnoticed. Lyft has captured over 29% of the rideshare market in the US, with over 2.6 billion rides taken annually. With so much growth, Lyft has even made it a focus of their business to increase awareness and riders in Phoenix. An unfortunate consequence of more and more Lyft rides in the Valley, is of-course, an increase in the number of Lyft car accidents. The Lyft accident attorneys in Scottsdale can help you understand your rights and get you compensated for your unexpected accident while riding in a Lyft.
ACCIDENT LIABILITY AGAINST
LYFT IN ARIZONA
Lyft, much like Uber has come under fire in recent years for their classification of drivers. Lyft attempts to avoid legal liability for accidents caused by their drivers, by classifying them as independent contractors and not employees. However, courts have held rideshare companies like Lyft liable, but not without distinctions. Looking at case precedent from other jurisdictions, legal liability for a Lyft ride depends on the phase of the ride:
- The Lyft driver was logged into the Lyft app and was being connected to a rider
- The Lyft driver was driving to pick up the passenger
- The Lyft driver was on a trip, driving a passenger to their destination
In many accidents, Lyft may ultimately be responsible for injuries you may sustain while on a trip provided by a Lyft driver. However, rideshare cases can become complex. Lyft, unlike traditional taxi cab services which utilize a fleet of vehicles, uses independent contractors operating their personally owned vehicles to transport passengers.
