San Antonio Rideshare Accident Lawyer

San Antonio Rideshare Accident Lawyer

Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have steadily increased in popularity across the country. A recent study by Pew Research shows that as many as 36% of U.S. adults say they have used a rideshare service in the past five years. However, this increasing popularity has also highlighted some severe downsides to the industry. On the one hand, there is some evidence that these services have led to a decrease in drunk driving incidents. At the same time, other studies suggest that they may also be responsible for an increase in car accidents – especially fatal car accidents.

Common factors that contribute to accidents involving rideshare services include:

  • Distracted driving while looking for a passenger, looking up an address, or looking at the app, etc.
  • Unfamiliarity with a roadway or specific terrain
