Coral Springs Uber / Lyft Accident Lawyer

10 years ago, few people had even heard of Uber or Lyft. Now, Uber drivers alone take around seven billion trips worldwide annually, worldwide according to Business of Apps. In fact, ridesharing has become so prevalent that it is drastically increasing the number of cars on the roads in cities across the country, often leading to a tipping point of high congestion. One study found that the sheer volume of traffic that Uber and Lyft are creating has led to more traffic deaths, according to Bloomberg. Whether you were injured as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, a pedestrian, a cyclist, or as another driver, you have the right to hold the at-fault party responsible. Uber and Lyft drivers have the ability to file personal injury claims as well. The Coral Springs lawyers at Lyons & Snyder P.A. can help you get started on your claim as soon as possible.
