When you’re planning on using a rideshare service, everyone has a different method of choosing. You may be loyal to a specific company because you like their app or it’s what you’ve always used. Or, you might bounce back and forth in order to find the best deal. Regardless of whether you choose Lyft or Uber, it’s likely you’re aware of the possible dangers of getting into a car with a rideshare driver – as stories are all over the news.

You may have noticed that Uber accidents seem more common than crashes involving Lyft vehicles. A number of factors affect how these companies are portrayed in the media and why people are more aware of Uber wrecks. It’s important to note, however, that Uber and Lyft have not released data for accident rates, so it’s difficult to determine just how frequently rideshare accidents occur.
