Uber & Taxi Accident Victim Attorney in Las Vegas

Uber & Taxi Crashes

According to The Nevada Taxicab Authority, Las Vegas is home to a taxi fleet of more than 3,000 vehicles. 2013 statistics showed that 23 accidents took place for every 100,000 rides. Unsafe driver behaviors like “long-hauling,” which is the illegal practice of driving up to 12 hours in a day, significantly increase the risk to passengers.Rideshare applications like Lyft and Uber are also popular in Las Vegas. However, these applications – which often attract amateur, part-time drivers – can also present danger to the unwary. In mid-2016, CNN reports that there were more than 70 federal lawsuits pending against Uber alone.

In any given year in the United States, there are tens of thousands of road fatalities and millions of vehicle accidents resulting in serious injury. Many of these involve a vehicle for hire, especially in major metropolitan areas.
