What Causes Rideshare Accidents?
Rideshare accidents often occur due to factors like driver distraction (such as using the app while driving), fatigue from long shifts, and the pressure to accept more rides to increase earnings. Urban navigation challenges, particularly in busy cities like Boston, add to the risk, and the same applies to the frequent stopping and starting for passenger pickups and drop-offs.
Common Challenges Pursuing Rideshare Accident Claims
Pursuing rideshare accident claims is more challenging than it may initially seem. One primary issue is determining liability, as it can be unclear whether the rideshare company, the driver, or another party is responsible. Additionally, the independent contractor status of drivers tends to complicate matters.
Dealing with large rideshare companies and their insurance carriers can also be daunting, especially if you don’t have a powerful legal team, like the army of attorneys at Morgan and Morgan, in your corner. To give you some perspective on their financial might, Uber made more than $31 billion in the first quarter of 2023.
Are Rideshare Drivers Really Independent Contractors?
Whether rideshare drivers are independent contractors is debatable. Companies like Uber and Lyft classify drivers as independent contractors, arguing that they have the freedom to choose their work hours and are not subject to direct control. But more than half of the time, it’s usually a tactic to profit from the hard work of their affiliated drivers while escaping liability in the event of a lawsuit.
What Should I Look for in a Boston Rideshare Accident Lawyer?
When looking for a Boston rideshare accident lawyer, here are some quick tips to keep in mind:
- Seek someone with specific experience in rideshare-related cases.
- They should understand Massachusetts' traffic and insurance laws and have a track record of negotiating with large companies and insurers.
- Make sure they have access to powerful legal resources to take on rideshare companies on your behalf.
- Look for proven results—don’t hire an attorney who plans on using your case as an experiment.
- Read their reviews; they’ll tell you everything you need to know about working with that particular lawyer.
