Irvine Uber & Lyft Accident Attorneys
Injury Claims for Rideshare Accidents in Orange County
When you request a Lyft on your phone and get in the car, you generally expect a smooth ride to your next destination. Part of the service, after all, is the convenience at a low price.
However, you might experience a bumpy ride along the way. Lyft, Uber, and other ridesharing services aren’t trained taxi drivers. While these companies do screen driving records, drivers are subject to the same distractions as anyone else.
The experienced Orange County car accident attorneys at RMD Law LLP can discuss your rights and help you better understand the claims process if you or a loved one has been in an accident. We are proven advocates with a strong track record of securing high settlements for our clients. With every case, our priority is always to help our clients obtain financial peace of mind after a tragic accident.
Who is Liable in an Uber or Lyft Accident?
Unless the injured party who was involved in an Uber or Lyft accident has a commercial policy or endorsement, a driver's personal insurance policy will not fully cover the damages sustained as a result of a ride share car accident. However, you may be able to hold Uber or Lyft financially responsible when you're a non-negligent party in a ride share accident.
While Lyft has a $1 million insurance policy that could cover any minor injuries, you may have to sue for more compensation if your injuries exceed that amount. If the worst occurs and you sustain severe spinal damage, you could be paralyzed for life.
Depending on the severity, yearly expenses for these type of injuries average from $334,000 to $1.023 million or more in the first year and $40,500 to $171,800 in each following year. For someone who becomes paralyzed at age 50, lifetime costs could reach from $1.45 to $2.5 million or more.
