Injured In An Uber Or Lyft Accident?
Uber, Lyft and other ride-sharing services have become commonplace for convenient, affordable and customized transportation anywhere. While prices fluctuate according to demand, all in all, many people find these services to be reasonable and reliable.
Uber and Lyft drivers must meet quality criteria but are not normally trained in person by those companies. Rather, they are judged by their driving records and rated according to their performance and customers’ satisfaction with their dependability. No matter how safe each driver may be, it is important to realize that accidents do happen. If you are hurt in a crash while riding as an Uber or Lyft passenger, it is important to seek guidance from a motor vehicle accident attorney with experience representing customers in such cases. Coast Law Group LLP has an established reputation for providing strong personal injury representation in the Encinitas and greater San Diego area.
How To Approach Insurance Issues After A Ride-Sharing Service Accident
As with any motor vehicle accident, it is important to realize that only an experienced, skilled personal injury attorney on your side will have the knowledge necessary to protect your interests. If our lawyers help you navigate the legal and financial recovery process, you may pursue compensation with our guidance from any combination of the following:
- The ride-sharing company, such as Uber or Lyft (worth up to $1 million, if applicable)
- The ride-sharing service driver’s auto insurance
- Another driver’s insurance or that of anyone else whose negligence contributed to the accident
- Your own uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, if necessary
We urge anyone who has been injured or has lost a loved one in an Uber or Lyft accident to get prompt legal counsel as well as timely emergency medical care.
