Ridesharing platforms such as Uber and Lyft have become a regular part of the Bay Area’s landscape. California legalized rideshare services in 2013; the use of such services remains a legal gray area since these companies are not subject to the same strict standards as their “common carrier” (e.g. taxi cab) counterparts.
Since their legalization in 2013, ride share companies have been embroiled in legal battle after legal battle involving a wide range of issues, from car accidents to the companies’ unfair and burdensome terms of service, to sexual assaults on passengers. Car accidents are part and parcel of the rideshare industry as the nature of the business requires drivers to utilize a phone application both before and during a ride, necessarily resulting in distracted and/or negligent driving.
