Bakersfield Lyft Accidents

FIGHTING FOR PEOPLE INJURED IN UBER OR LYFT ACCIDENTS

The fact that researchers reported last year that ride-sharing companies tend to increase traffic fatalities in the new cities they invade made some locals think about the possibility of more Lyft accidents in Bakersfield, CA occurring. Lyft denied the findings and felt that their company was actually becoming much safer. One of their spokeswomen voiced her thoughts, saying to reporters that she felt the “study was deeply flawed, from the problematic methodology to its unjustified conclusions…”

For years, Lyft and the California Public Utilities Commission have been collectively holding back information from Californians about how safe the company really is. And, even if a terrible Lyft accident in Bakersfield, CA does happen in the near future, the secret-keeping duo will not allow the public access to records of it, or release any info about negative traffic details involving the ride-sharing company. Why? The truth is, it’s all because of the way the commission wrote their rules during the lobbying process, more specifically what the San Francisco Public Press points out as “Footnote 42”. Basically, it’s a sentence that the commission slipped into the regulations under the public’s radar where they actually prohibit themselves from sharing the traffic and safety history of Lyft with the Golden State’s many drivers and residents. 

Still, what would happen if you were involved in an accident with a Lyft driver and ended up getting injured? Well, just like any other accident in the Bakersfield, CA area, Lyft accidents should be treated with the same kind of attention to detail from the very beginning. All insurance information needs to be exchanged at the scene, pictures of the vehicle should be taken, and a valid police report should be filed. When it comes to trying to prove whether or not the Lyft driver was at fault, this basic information about the accident will be vital in establishing and proving your case. 

The thing to remember is that it will not be the Lyft driver’s personal insurance company that will be handling your claim. The moment that the driver logs into the Lyft app to begin working, his or her insurance company is not liable for any accident, and all claims will be handled by Lyft’s insurance. They require all of their drivers to have the minimum insurance California mandates, and without it they can’t even be hired to drive for the company. So, if their driver is at fault, Lyft has to pay up to $50,000 in damages to any injured persons.
