Boynton Beach Lyft Accidents
On demand ride sharing service Lyft is one of the favorite ways for visitors to Boynton Beach to get around easily. Instead of renting a car or using their own car, passengers simply use their Lyft app on their Smartphone to call for a ride. The service connects passengers with available drivers, who pick up the passengers on-demand. The price for a Lyft ride is usually considerably less than a traditional taxi, and slightly less than its ride-share rival Uber. Surveys consistently show that Lyft passengers prefer the company over other ride share services, noting that the company is smaller and more friendly than Uber, and they like that it has a reputation for treating its drivers better than Uber does.Why Use Lyft?
In Boynton Beach, passengers use Lyft for transportation to any number of destinations. High volume destinations include the Boynton Beach Mall, the beaches, and numerous restaurants and bars in Boynton. Moreover, passengers sometimes use the Lyft service for multiple destinations, starting with hiring a Lyft driver to take them shopping in downtown Boynton and then taking Lyft to a restaurant on Ocean Avenue. According to an economic impact study recently released by the company, passengers say that they use Lyft to explore hard to reach areas of cities, to go to bars and restaurants, and when they know they want to stay out late or not worry about drinking and driving. That means Lyft drivers are now taking Boynton passengers to all areas of the City, often late at night or early in the morning. Passengers also like to use Lyft because it allows them to avoid trying to find parking, which is often at a premium in Boynton.Lyft Accidents
The growing number of Lyft drivers on the roads of Boynton Beach also means more accidents involving Lyft cars and more demand for lawyers to help victims. Lyft drivers can find themselves involved in collisions with other vehicles, with bicycles or pedestrians, or in accidents involving property in Boynton Beach. Many Lyft drivers work a "day job" and do not drive until evening hours, when they may be tired or distracted, which increases the chances of accidents. Additionally, the most lucrative time for Lyft drivers to operate in Boynton Beach is during the evenings or late at night, when restaurant and bar-goers use the service. Many drivers on the road late at night are tired or impaired, further contributing to the possibility of an accident.Complications with Lyft Accidents
While all accidents are difficult for victims, the multiple layers of dealing with an accident involving a Lyft driver can be particularly frustrating, increasing the need for a qualified attorney. Lyft drivers are not covered by company insurance unless they actually have a passenger in the car. And even then, recovering compensation from Lyft can be difficult. The situation becomes even more confusing because personal insurance may not cover Lyft drivers when they are engaged in commercial activity.Frankl & Kominsky: Your Lyft Accident Lawyer
