California Uber and Lyft Accident Attorney

California Rideshare Injury Attorney

Uber and Lyft provide an innovative transport alternative. Unfortunately, these rides aren’t always safe. In California, rideshare accidents happen almost every day.

Both rideshares cover their drivers with a $1 million insurance policy while they are on duty. You can bring a claim against this policy if the rideshare driver was on duty and caused an accident that resulted in your injuries. This is true whether you were an Uber or Lyft passenger, a pedestrian, or a driver or passenger in another vehicle.

This policy includes uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. If you were an Uber or Lyft passenger and your rideshare vehicle was hit by an uninsured/underinsured driver, you can bring a claim against the rideshare company’s UM/UIM insurance policy.

Uber’s and Lyft’s $1 million insurance policy does not apply to accidents caused when a driver is not on duty. If you were hit by an Uber or Lyft driver while their driver app was off, your claim would be against the driver’s personal insurance policy.

Determining insurance liability is just one of many complicated steps in the process of filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim after a rideshare crash. The California Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyers at Potter Handy, LLP can help you overcome the legal hurdles you will encounter during the proceedings and hold all liable parties accountable for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages.

If You Were In An Uber or Lyft Accident Seek Help Right Away

All of these accidents can cause serious injuries. If you were in an accident you should seek prompt medical attention and get checked out by a doctor. Even if you don’t have pain right away you may experience symptoms several days after the accident.

Common injuries after a car accident are:

  • Broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Head or brain injuries
  • Lacerations
