What Are Some Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents?
More than half the time, when rideshare accidents happen, it’s usually because of some form of negligence. It could be the rideshare driver’s fault, the rideshare company itself, or even a third party, such as the other driver. That said, these accidents can occur if the rideshare driver:
- is distracted by their phone or navigation systems;
- exceeds speed limits or drives too fast for road conditions;
- operates the vehicle while overly tired, affecting their reaction times and judgment; or
- drives under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medication.
How a Rideshare Company Can Be Directly Liable for the Accident
Some accidents may occur because the rideshare company was negligent in one way or the other. In that case, the injured may be able to file a claim directly with the rideshare company. Here are a few examples of scenarios where the rideshare company may be directly responsible for the accident:
- Failure to provide sufficient training on safe driving practices.
- Failure to vet drivers for driving history or criminal background.
- Problems with the app leading to unsafe routes or distracted driving.
- Failure to hire drivers with sufficient driving experience.
