Understanding Rideshare Accidents in Los Angeles

Navigating the aftermath of a rideshare accident in Los Angeles County can be daunting, especially with the unique challenges that come with the bustling traffic and diverse road conditions in areas like Encino and downtown Los Angeles. At Arshakyan Law Firm, we understand the local landscape and the specific hurdles you might face.

Los Angeles is home to a vast network of roads and highways, including the infamous 405 and 101 freeways, which are notorious for heavy traffic and frequent accidents. Local government entities such as the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) are often involved in managing and reporting these incidents. While these agencies work tirelessly to maintain road safety, the high volume of rideshare vehicles can still lead to complex accident scenarios.

Southern California Rideshare Accidents

Rideshare services, such as those provided by Uber and Lyft, have become popular in Southern California and across the nation. They are a convenient, less expensive, and easy way to travel to and from your destination when your vehicle is being serviced, when you are headed to a social event involving alcohol, or for shopping and other activities. They are especially convenient for those without personal transportation, such as seniors, students, and the disabled. 

Just as when traveling in traffic in other ways, rideshare services can result in accidents. Claims involving these accidents are more complex because more than one party may be liable and thus multiple insurers may require separate claims. 

Companies like Uber offer insurance coverage to drivers and passengers. However, different coverages may apply, depending on what stage of the ride was in play when the accident occurred. For example, the rideshare company’s insurance may apply when the rideshare driver has responded to a customer on the app, is on the way to pick up the customer, and while driving to the customer’s destination. Once the customer has been delivered and the driver is no longer on the app, an accident occurring within this time frame may involve the driver’s personal insurance coverage or the coverage of the other driver who caused the accident.
