How did your ridesharing accident happen?
Accidents caused by ridesharing drivers working for Uber, Lyft or another ridesharing company happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of West Virginia ridesharing accidents include:
- Distracted driving accidents – Ridesharing drivers often try to do many different things at the same time, including checking their ridesharing app while driving, looking at their GPS for directions or contacting other passengers to set up future rides. The result? Many distracted ridesharing drivers cause serious car crashes.
- Speeding accidents – Many people drive too fast. When it comes to ridesharing drivers, they’re no exception. That’s because some drivers are running late for their next job, trying to make up a few minutes of lost time or simply trying to pack in as many jobs as possible per shift. When they do, speeding accidents often occur.
- Tired driver accidents – Ridesharing drivers often work long hours driving their car or working two or three different jobs in the same day. The result is that many drivers lack sleep and nod off at the wheel, causing serious or sometimes even fatal car accidents.
- Drunk driver accidents – Drinking and driving sadly remains a common cause of serious car accidents in West Virginia. Ridesharing drivers are unfortunately sometimes to blame when drunk driving accidents take place.
