How did your ridesharing accident happen?

Ridesharing accidents happen many for many different reasons. They also often involve many different scenarios, including:

Ridesharing driver accident involving:

  • Other vehicles
  • Pedestrians
  • Cyclists
  • Passengers riding in ridesharing car

So why do these car accidents happen? Some of the most common causes of ridesharing accidents include:

  • Distracted driving – Lyft and Uber need to keep track of a lot of things on the road – where they’re going, who their next customer is, detours due to construction or accidents, etc. And since they’re often doing all these things while they’re driving, distracted driving accidents often occur involving ridesharing drivers.
  • Speeding – Ridesharing drivers often drive too fast because they’re trying to handle as many trips as possible. That’s because they get paid for each ride, not by the hour. As a result, some Uber or Lyft drivers go too fast and end up causing serious car crashes.
  • Falling asleep at the wheel – Some ridesharing drivers work long hours. And since there’s no limit on how many hours they can work each day, some drivers push themselves to exhaustion and fall asleep at the wheel, causing a serious accident.
  • Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs – Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol remains a common cause of motor vehicle accidents in Florida. This includes ridesharing drivers as well.
