Uber and Lyft Accidents Injury Lawyer
Rideshare companies have become a popular way to travel from point A to point B. Uber, Lyft and other similar private transportation companies use independent contractors to transport passengers using convenient mobile device apps. While this form of transportation is efficient and cost-effective, these drivers are usually not required to have any professional driving training or experience. If you need an Uber and Lyft accident injury lawyer in Georgia, you can trust our team at Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC.
Uber and Lyft took over the private-person transportation industry by storm. More efficient and with much lower rates than taxis or cabs, Uber and Lyft quickly became popular for anyone needing a ride to the airport or home from a night out with friends. While there are many benefits to these companies, their drivers are usually using this job as a side gig, and many have no experience as a professional driver. Accidents are bound to occur, and if injuries occur, both the driver and the company they contract through may be liable for the accident injuries. Both must have insurance to cover injury accidents to run these businesses in Georgia.
