Ridesharing accident – when the driver or Uber/Lyft is liable

In recent years, an increasing number of Pennsylvania residents have been using rideshare services to get around the state. Unlike regular taxi services that operate on a mixture of time and distance charges, rideshares like Uber and Lyft charge their passengers a flat rate for the trip, whether they are heading to Heinz Field to take in a Steelers game or getting a ride to the airport. As a result, these can be convenient and cost-effective, giving customers the ability to book a ride right from their phones.
