Lyft Company in New Jersey

Lyft has been offering ridesharing services in New Jersey for over four years and continues to grow in popularity. While the exact number of Lyft drivers is currently only known by the company itself, the number in the state is estimated to be in the thousands. The average driver earns approximately $30 per hour, the amount may vary depending on when and where the ride is taken.

According to a Lyft report, the company has saved residents over $18 million in value and $1 million hours compared to other transportation modes. One of the reasons for this continued growth is that Lyft is convenient and easy to use.

Lyft vehicles may be popular, but they are not immune to accidents. Their continued presence on New Jersey roads has necessitated the implementation of new laws to protect accident victims.


What Causes Lyft Accidents?

Lyft accidents share many similarities to typical car accident causes, with some caveats. For example, unlike other drivers, Lyft drivers rely on their phones for work, making them more likely to engage in distracted driving behaviors. They also take few or no breaks in between rides to maximize their earnings, leading to fatigued driving.

Other causes of Lyft accidents include:

  • Violating traffic laws
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Using a navigation app when driving
  • Passenger behavior
  • Unfamiliar roads and parking spaces
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving


Available Compensation for Lyft Accident Victims

In 2017, New Jersey adopted new insurance coverage requirements to protect rideshare accident victims. While they go a long way in ensuring victims are compensated for their losses, they do not entirely simplify the claims process. You will still need to establish that the Lyft driver is liable for the accident, which the insurance company will try to challenge.

If you come to us with a Lyft accident case, attorney Carbone will help you gain compensation for the following losses:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation, physical therapy, and aftercare
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Lost income
