Bringing A Personal Injury Claim After A Rideshare Accident
Many people wonder if they can bring a claim when they suffer an injury in an accident while they are riding in an Uber, Lyft or some other ride-share service. If you are one of those people, you should know your rights. You can bring a personal injury claim against the negligent driver who caused the accident. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you obtain the damages you deserve.

We know what it takes to fight insurance companies, and if they will not agree to a reasonable settlement, we are always prepared to take your case to trial.
Ride-Share Accidents Bring Complications
Accidents involving ride-share drivers are similar to other accidents in some ways, but more complex in others. In a typical accident, both drivers carry insurance, and the insurance company for the driver who caused the accident may have to pay for the other driver’s property damage and medical bills.
Drivers for ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft also carry their own insurance, but the state of California requires the company to also carry additional insurance on their drivers while they are on duty. This applies whether you were in the ride-share vehicle or struck by it. We will investigate your accident to find out every available insurance policy that may apply to your accident and maximize your recovery.
In addition to insurance liability issues, we will help you through every other aspect of your claim, just as we would for any of our personal injury clients. We work closely with every client, keeping you updated on your case so you can make informed decisions. We never stop fighting for you.
