damage. MAS Law Firm helps clients involved in these kinds of accidents

A Change in the Industry
Ridesharing has had a huge impact on the way people choose to travel. Where
before taxi drivers were required to obtain a commercial driver’s
license before they could take money for transportation, ridesharing has
made it possible for nearly
anyone with a smartphone to operate a car professionally. Prior to 2017, traffic accidents were on the decline, but since then,
they have increased significantly.
Some reasons these drivers cause more accidents are:
- They spend more time driving between rides
- Uber and Lyft do not require commercial driver’s licenses for their employees
- The cars they operate are not held to the same safety standards as taxis
- They are unfamiliar with the areas where they are working
- They spend many hours behind the wheel without rest
While these companies provide unprecedented convenience, the truth is they
also cost more in dangerous driving conditions. Those who are injured
need to seek legal help and hold these companies accountable for the damage
their drivers cause.
Rental Scooter Problems
When you rent an electric scooter, you have almost no idea whether or not
it is safe. While rental companies reassure their customers that the scooter
they are about to ride will work properly,
the numbers show that this not true. In fact, these vehicles result in much higher accident rates for operators
due to poor safety controls.
Before renting any scooter, you should make sure:
- The brakes are not squishy
- The tires have enough tread
- The frame is not damaged or bent
If you were injured due to a defective scooter, MAS Law Firm can help you
build a strong case for obtaining the compensation you need for your injuries.

outcomes for our clients. It is important that these companies are held
