Injured in an Uber or Lyft Accident? Let Us Fight to Maximize Your Deserved Compensation

Accident Injury Claims Against Uber or Lyft

Holding Rideshare Companies Accountable

Rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft are a wildly popular alternative to driving and public transportation. Uber and Lyft have procedures in place to ensure their passengers arrive safely at their destination, including:

  • Providing complete driver and vehicle details on the apps
  • Advising drivers to confirm details when picking up passengers
  • Installing branded, colored lights on drivers’ cars for easy identification

One aspect of rideshare safety that has been in place since the industry’s beginning is the initial background check. Sadly, Uber and Lyft’s background checks may not be completely thorough and negligently hiring an unsafe driver can put passengers and others on the road in danger.

Contact our expert Atlanta Uber accident attorneys if you have been harmed in a collision involving an Uber or Lyft driver and you believe it was due to driver negligence.

Negligent Hiring & Background Checks by Uber and Lyft

Uber and Lyft run background checks on all driver applicants, examining their medical history and criminal record.

In addition to checking for violent crime involvement, the background check looks into applicants’ past traffic violations including:

  • DUIs
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Any behavior that resulted in a collision

Obviously, Uber and Lyft want to hire safe drivers; however, rideshare companies can miss or ignore blemishes on a potential driver’s record, and hire them anyway. By doing so, the companies are acting negligently and endangering others. If an accident occurs with a negligent rideshare driver and it could have prevented by not hiring them, Uber or Lyft may be responsible for some of the damages.

It is crucial to speak with an Atlanta Lyft accident lawyer who is knowledgeable on how these types of cases work. Call (404) 907-1594 for a free consultation.
