Arnold & Itkin Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright, Joseph McGowin, Roland Christensen, and Alison Baimbridge filed suit today in Harris County, Texas on behalf of a man and woman who were severely injured while driving down a Texas roadway. Our clients were driving when a Lyft driver suddenly and unexpectedly ran a stop sign and crashed into their car. Due to the recklessness and inattentiveness of the Lyft driver, our clients suffered severe injuries that will require extensive medical treatment.
Lyft drivers have a responsibility to follow traffic laws and keep their passengers and other drivers on the road safe. Rideshare companies must also contract drivers who won’t violate traffic laws and hurt others on the road. Unfortunately, this rideshare company and the driver failed to do so, and therefore, should be held liable for their negligent behavior and the damage caused to our clients. The Lyft accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin are experienced in handling claims against rideshare companies and are proud to represent these clients.
