When you request an Uber on your phone and get in, 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. Uber, Lyft, 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 lawyer at RMD Law LLP can discuss your rights and help you learn more about filing a claim for compensation. We are proven advocates who are dedicated to seeking full and fair compensation for each client. Our track record of high settlements has changed lives and helped many of our clients move forward with financial peace of mind.
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.
