Big ridesharing companies keep getting bigger. In 2022, Uber’s revenue increased by 80% to over $31 billion. Uber and Lyft need lots of drivers to cope with the increased demand. As a result, pretty much anyone with a valid driver’s license can be an Uber or Lyft driver. These companies no longer examine driving records and other evidence as closely as they did before the pandemic.
Uber and Lyft may have lowered their standards, but legal standards remain in place. As outlined below, these standards are high for ridesharing operators and other commercial drivers. So, if these drivers cause crashes, a Marietta personal injury attorney can often obtain substantial compensation in court. This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.
