Pedestrian Dies After Being Hit by Self-Driving Car

By Breyer Law Offices on March 19, 2018

There’s a lot of new technology on Arizona’s roadways, including self-driving vehicles. Arizona doesn’t have any rules or regulations regarding these types of vehicles, making it an attractive place for big tech companies to test them. But sometimes the testing doesn’t go as planned, as demonstrated in the fatal accident this weekend in Tempe that killed a pedestrian. Read the rest »

What Is Lyft?

By Breyer Law Offices on October 24, 2017

Lyft is a ridesharing transportation company that helps connect people wanting to go somewhere with a driver who owns a car. Lyft drivers choose their own hours and keep all their tips.

Passengers use Lyft because it is a convenient and cost-effective way to get around town without having to have their own car. It’s like calling a cab, but may be available in more areas and offer faster service, in some instances. Read the rest »

Uber Car Accidents Mean Complex Liability

By Breyer Law Offices on October 21, 2017

Uber is available in most cities across Arizona, especially in busier cities like Phoenix, Tempe, and Tucson. In fact, Uber rolled out its self-driving car in Tempe, and that’s also where one of those cars got into an accident — near Apache and Terrace close to Arizona State University — in early 2017. While the self-driving car wasn’t to blame (it had the right of way), accidents do happen and passengers could be involved in accidents whether the car has a driver or not. If you use Uber and are the victim of an accident, it’s good to know you have a team on your side to help you. Read the rest »

Few people like to pay to park for long periods at the airport, and asking friends for rides isn’t always a reliable method of transportation.

Steps You Should Take Following an Arizona Uber or Lyft Accident

By Breyer Law Offices on April 10, 2016

Here’s the thing about Uber, Lyft, and all the other ride sharing drivers we rely on – they’re just like us. When they get behind the wheel, they are just as likely to get into an accident as we are when we drive ourselves. For many of us, however, the thought of getting in an accident with a “professional” driver rarely enters our minds. We put a great deal of faith in our driver’s abilities and just like taxi and bus operators, we expect them to drive safely. But, as recent history has shown us, Uber and Lyft drivers are just as error-prone as the rest of us – and in some instance maybe even more so.

Who Pays When an Uber or Lyft Driver Causes an Accident?

By Breyer Law Offices on November 6, 2015

Companies like Uber and Lyft have made a name for themselves in the past couple years by using today’s smartphone culture to connect drivers and those who need a ride.  Instead of taking the bus or hailing a cab, a user simply uses the company’s mobile app to signal the nearest driver that they need a ride. These apps are popular, and don’t seem to be going anywhere. Read the rest »
