Phillips Law Lyft Accident Attorneys
In recent years, ridesharing companies have increased in popularity. With just a few taps on a smartphone, a person can use an app to request a ride. Lyft is one of the most widely known ridesharing companies and transports customers in hundreds of cities across the United States. But as the number of Lyft rides goes up, so does the number of people involved in a Lyft accident.
While generally considered a safe and efficient means of transportation, accidents involving Lyft and other ridesharing services are becoming more common. Lyft accident cases can be complex, and victims may be unsure of what to do after being injured. Whether you were a passenger in the Lyft, a pedestrian, or inside of another vehicle, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your losses after being involved in a Lyft crash.

Rideshare Services Provided by Lyft
When riders use the Lyft app to request a ride, they will be connected with a driver. The Lyft driver will then use GPS to locate the rider, make the pick-up, and take the rider to his or her destination.
Lyft offers different levels of service that vary by city, but include:
- Lyft Standard: This service provides a standard-size vehicle for up to four passengers
- Lyft Shared: Matches riders traveling in the same direction, to share a vehicle at a lower price
- Lyft XL: SUV for up to 6 riders
- Lyft Lux: Premium black car service in luxury vehicles
- Lyft Lux Black: Premium black car service with leather seats for up to 4 riders
- Lux Black XL: Premium black SUV with leather seats for up to 6 riders
One reason why Lyft and other rideshare companies have become so popular is that their prices are typically less expensive than a taxi. In addition, since Lyft vehicles are privately owned; they are often newer, cleaner, and more comfortable.
If you or a loved one have been in a Lyft accident in any of the levels of services for the rideshare company, contact Phillips Law Group at (602) 222-2222 or via the contact form on this page.
