Common Causes of Bronx Lyft Accidents

Driving in New York City, including in the Bronx, is a skill unto itself. Navigating one-way streets, hordes of pedestrians and bicyclists crossing the street, and near-constant traffic pose numerous obstacles for drivers.

Any Bronx driver is expected to exercise a reasonable degree of caution and care when behind the wheel. When they do not and an accident occurs, injured motorists and passengers may be entitled to compensation.

Below are some common types of driver errors that may result in a Bronx Lyft accident:

  • Failure to obey traffic signals, such as running red lights 
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving, including looking at the Lyft app or messaging customers: In a recent survey, 29% of rideshare passengers reported seeing their Uber or Lyft drivers text behind the wheel.
  • Reckless driving, including tailgating or cutting off other vehicles
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Where Are Lyft Crashes Most Likely to Happen in the Bronx?

According to 2016 data on all motor vehicle accidents throughout New York City, these are the most dangerous Bronx intersections that report some of the most crashes:

  • East 138th Street and Alexander Avenue
  • East Fordham Road and Southern Boulevard

Both of these intersections report an average of 100 crashes every year.

Possible Bronx Lyft Accident Injuries

When a Lyft crashes, any involved passengers and drivers may suffer from one or more of the following injuries that are common to any motor vehicle accident:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash 
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Burns
  • Hearing or vision loss

Sometimes Lyft accident injuries are fatal. In the event of a fatal Bronx Lyft crash, loved ones may be entitled to pursue an accidental death lawsuit to recover compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and more.

Am I Entitled to Compensation After a Bronx Lyft Accident?

Injured Lyft passengers may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit if it can be shown that another driver or individual was at-fault for the accident and the resulting injuries. A Lyft accident lawsuit may help recover compensation for the following:

  • Pain and suffering: Lyft accident injuries can permanently alter a survivor’s life and prevent them from enjoying the activities they once did. While no amount of money can change this, it can ensure that individuals are more comfortable and justice is served
  • Medical bills: This includes relevant hospital stays, surgeries, medications, doctor’s visits, and more.
  • Reduction in wages: If an injury prevents an individual from working temporarily or permanently, or if the injury requires that they find alternative work at a lower salary, they may be able to recover this loss in earnings 

Why Should I Hire a Bronx Lyft Accident Lawyer?

A qualified personal injury attorney can be instrumental in helping you and your family after a Lyft car crash. They can help you in the following ways:

  • Identifying your best options for pursuing compensation: This includes identifying any potentially negligent drivers and parties who may have caused the accident
  • Helping you gather evidence showing how you were injured: This will help build a strong claim for compensation
  • Filing a lawsuit and other relevant legal documents: Your attorney will help ensure you meet any relevant filing deadlines
  • Negotiate on your behalf for fair compensation: Sometimes an insurance company may try to limit the amount of money they pay you. Your Bronx Lyft accident attorney will be your best advocate to ensure you are compensated fairly
