Since their initial conception in 2012, ridesharing services such as Lyft and Uber have become more popular than, perhaps, even their inventors could have imagined. Offering an alternative to more traditional cab services, like Yellow Cab, these ridesharing services involving hailing a ride using an app, where nearby drivers can pick up the job. The car and driver assigned to your job can be viewed using the smartphone app, where you can track their journey to you, as well as reading reviews left by their earlier passengers. In addition to this, the services are made even more convenient by the fact that payment is made using a card you have pre-registered to the app, negating the need to have sufficient cash to hand.
One downside of using Lyft, or another ridesharing service, is that they are cars and, as such, just as likely to become involved in a car accident as any other on the roads. Should you be injured in similar circumstances, a Bountiful Lyft accident attorney from The Jardine Law Offices could help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
