A recent study points out that ride sharing isn’t just having a positive consumer effect for helping people get around San Francisco, but, in fact, could led to problems with congestion and related accidents. Lyft and Uber accounted for two thirds of a 62% congestion increase across San Francisco, according to a recently completed study, that led to hours of delay going up by as much as 22%.

These congestion issues occur most frequently in Downtown areas where pedestrians and tourists are congregated and rely on services such as Uber and Lyft to get around easily and affordably. But the extra traffic on the roads can also pose a risk of causing additional accidents and injuries.

Getting into an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver calls a lot of issues into question, especially if the driver of your vehicle might have been responsible for causing the crash to begin with. You’ll need to get contact information for that driver and anyone else involved in the wreck to begin the insurance process and protect your own interests.

Most people who are hurt in a ride sharing accident might not realize how insurance treats these cases or the rights of passengers. Getting the help of an experienced attorney immediately after the accident is one of the most important things that a person injured in San Francisco can do.
