Rideshare Accidents in California

Ridesharing has gained in popularity in recent years. For many, it is convenient to use the app to call for an Uber or Lyft ride at any time of the day or night. Sometimes people need a one-way ride or are trying to avoid parking fees. Other times, people are without transportation or they take an Uber or Lyft to avoid the potential for drunk driving when going out for the night with friends. Whatever the reason, it is a relatively new concept where individuals find themselves in the personal vehicles of strangers who are not professional drivers.

Because of the many benefits of using a rideshare service, passengers may be unaware of the risks. Southern California’s streets and freeways are clogged by traffic, and there is a high potential for accidents involving rideshare vehicles to cause serious injuries to passengers. Because Uber and Lyft drivers are required to carry their own insurance, these accidents can involve multiple entities. 

Compensation for Uber and Lyft Accident Victims

Lyft and Uber drivers must follow the same traffic and safety laws as other drivers. With multiple stops, constant attention focused on the rideshare app, and conversation or music all happening simultaneously, the rideshare driver must keep operational safety as the primary concern. When accidents happen, the liability may depend on which part of the ride was in progress. Determining liability in rideshare accidents increases the complexity of these situations.

In rideshare accident claims, the insurance companies will deny responsibility. Rideshare Lawyer Mark S. Martinez is familiar with the ways insurance companies handle these matters. He aggressively pursues all channels of compensation for injured rideshare accident victims, including legal action against a Lyft and Uber driver’s personal insurance. Even when another vehicle is responsible for the accident, it may be that the rideshare driver’s insurance could be held responsible for the injured passenger’s compensation.
