Uber Car Accident Statistics
Unlike Lyft, Uber has published a study showcasing the accidents that have been caused by their drivers in the past few years. Their most recent study shows the following date for 2019-2020:
- There were 101 motor vehicle fatalities across 91 Uber-related crashes
- 32% of fatal Uber accidents involved speeding
- 23% of fatal Uber accidents involved drunk drivers
- 15% of fatal Uber accidents involved a driver driving the wrong way
- 94% of fatal accidents involving Uber drivers were caused by the actions of third-party drivers
However, Uber only reported on fatal accidents that involved their drivers, leaving out any statistics on motor vehicle accidents that didn’t cause fatality. Non-fatal accidents are much more common. Non-fatal accidents can still have devastating consequences. They may leave someone permanently disabled or in pain for the rest of their life.
In the state of Florida, there were a total of 390,669 crashes in 2022. 3,454 resulted in a fatality, and 248,809 resulted in an injury. That’s a lot of accidents, with only 1% resulting in death. From that, we can estimate that there were likely thousands of Uber accidents that resulted in injuries.
