When we discuss accidents involving ridesharing vehicles and drivers, we have to look at the overall statistics of motor vehicle accidents across the Commonwealth. Why does that matter? It matters because these crashes occur in the same way that other crashes occur. Lyft drivers are regular people with no particular driver training. They are prone to the same mistakes as any other driver on the roadway.
During the latest reporting year in PA, there were more than 128,000 total crashes. Out of those, there were 1,137 fatalities and over 80,000 injuries reported. More than 4,000 of those injuries were listed as “serious.”
Injuries from these incidents range in severity and can include:
The complexities of these cases revolve around insurance issues. In most car accidents, you are dealing with your insurance company and the carrier of the at-fault driver.

At the Dan Doyle Law Group, we understand that these cases can become more complicated than regular vehicle accident cases. We are ready to investigate what happened and deal with the insurance companies so we can secure the compensation you need. This can include:
