At Arshakyan Law Firm, our accomplished personal injury lawyers are here to provide you with the full complement of services needed to file your injury claim or lawsuit. Rideshare accident injury claims can be especially complex due to the variety of those who may be liable for damages. Thus, different insurers may be involved, from the personal insurer of the rideshare driver to the rideshare company’s insurer.
Our Encino rideshare accident attorneys can take care of all these complexities, along with gathering and preserving evidence of fault, developing your case, engaging in skilled negotiation to pursue maximized compensation, or taking your claim to court in a litigated trial. We can cover all contingencies and cases where you have suffered injuries and losses in a rideshare accident in Los Angeles County, Ventura County, or Riverside County.
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.
Thus, those who can be involved in rideshare accident claims can include:
- Rideshare passengers while in transit on the rideshare app
- Rideshare drivers while in transit with a passenger
- Rideshare drivers when driving off the app and on their own personal time
- Passengers and drivers in other vehicles when involved in an accident with a rideshare driver
