San Diego Rideshare Car Accident Attorneys

Legal Representation After a Ridesharing Accident

It wasn't too long ago that the only ridesharing options for those who wanted to save money on gas were to take the bus or carpool. Those options are still popular here in San Diego, but rideshare services like Uber & Lyft have all grown in popularity. These are companies that operate in a similar manner as taxi and limousine services but they are not regulated in the same manner. Each rideshare option is unique, and there are unique complications that may arise if you're ever involved in an crash.

If you've been injured in a rideshare car accident, you may be wondering about who will compensate you for your medical expenses, lost income, and other costs.

Call us to find out how we can help you. We can be reached at (619) 233-5020.

Insurance Issues with Rideshare

If you're riding in a bus or taxi at the time of the crash, the company involved in the collision is required by law to handle your claim quickly. The bus, limo or taxi company should offer you a settlement that reimburses all your medical bills, lost wages, and other related damages.

The liability process becomes more complicated if you're involved in a rideshare accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver. These companies are app-based vehicle-for-hire services in which drivers operate their own vehicles. This means that each driver is covered by their own auto insurance policy. There are fewer safeguards to protect consumers. The drivers aren't trained in the same manner as taxi drivers. The vehicles aren't inspected in the same manner that taxis are, and the insurance coverage is entirely different.

If You Have Been Injured in San Diego

Uber recently argued in a court case that they are not a transportation company or a public carrier and aren't responsible for injuries suffered by passengers in an accident. This puts the financial burden back on the drivers who may or may not have insurance that includes commercial use. In fact, most personal insurance policies DO NOT cover for-profit use.

If you've been hurt in a rideshare car accident, make sure that you have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side who'll fight for your rights and best interests. You're entitled to fair compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses.
