CALIFORNIA RIDESHARE ACCIDENT LAWYERS

FIGHTING FOR PEOPLE INJURED IN UBER OR LYFT ACCIDENTS

As a passenger, you trust your safety to the driver and hope and expect that they make the right decisions. As a passenger, you also risk from other drivers on the road as well. Uber and Lyft drivers get paid for driving distances and the more fairs they can pick up in the shortest amount of time, the more money the can make.

It is not unheard of to see Uber and Lyft cars driving fast, weaving in and out of traffic, making unsafe turns, and failing to signal. What is worse is that many rideshare drivers are distracted by their phones, mobile-phone apps, navigation computers, and unruly passengers.

There is a special duty that is owed by common carriers, such as taxi cabs, limousine drivers, and also Uber and Lyft, toward their passengers.

Rideshare accidents can cause some of the most devastating injuries to passengers and bystanders. As with other types of automobile accidents, passengers are especially susceptible to injuries, such as:

An experienced Rideshare accident injury attorney at the B&D Law Group, APLC can help you obtain the maximum recovery for injuries you sustained as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft automobile accident.

Seeking the Maximum Compensation from Negligent Parties

Riders that are injured in a rideshare accident may be able to recover from the driver of their vehicle, from the other drivers, and possibly even from their own insurance.

In certain circumstances, passengers are even able to recover from the rideshare company. Uber and Lyft has been required to maintain excess liability coverage for their drivers. Some of these companies carry million-dollar insurance policies. However, it is not clear whether these coverages will, in fact, protect their passengers if an unfortunate accident occurs. An experienced California rideshare injury attorney can help you steer through the myriad of laws and insurance policy provisions that relate to passengers in accidents.

Common carriers, such as buses, taxi cabs, Uber, Lyft, shuttle vans, and limousine drivers, owe a special duty toward their passengers, adding additional avenues by which an injured passenger can seek recovery on their accident claim. Common carriers owe a duty to their passengers to ensure that the vehicles are properly maintained and that the drivers have the proper skill and training to operate the vehicles. Recent events in the news have put into question whether these rideshare companies are living up to the duty they owe their passengers.

If you were a passenger in a rideshare accident or lost a loved one as a passenger in a rideshare collision, please contact B&D Law Group online or by calling (888) 977-2238.
