Monroe Lyft Accident Attorney
When you need a lift, it’s great to know that Lyft is there for you. If a negligent Lyft driver, however, leaves you injured in an accident, obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled can be a complicated process, but having an experienced Monroe Lyft accident lawyer on your side can help immensely.
The Lyft Driver
The Lyft driver who leaves you injured shoulders increased safety responsibilities behind the wheel. In addition to these responsibilities, he or she has must safely tackle all of the following driving risks:
- Making frequent stops
- Entering and exiting traffic frequently
- Locating passengers who are waiting to be picked up
- Interacting with the Lyft app while driving, including being guided by its GPS system to locations for picking up and dropping off passengers.
- Driving in unfamiliar areas
On top of this, Lyft drivers are not required to have any special driver’s license, experience, or skill in order to transport Lyft passengers. It’s a lot, and when a Lyft driver engages in a negligent driving practice, it increases the danger involved exponentially. Such negligence can include:
- Distraction (texting is the most dangerous distraction of a bad lot)
- Excess speed
Driving for Lyft is a massive responsibility, and when the driver is less than scrupulous about safety, it makes dangerous Lyft accidents more likely and leaves everyone who shares the roadway with the driver at increased risk.
