Uber/Lyft Accident Attorney
Los Angeles residents love ridesharing services. They give us a reasonably priced and convenient way to get around our enormous, sprawling city whenever driving ourselves isn’t an option. However, Uber and Lyft drivers are not any more immune to injury-causing collisions than anyone else and, when accidents occur, a knowledgeable and experienced Uber/Lyft accident attorney can make all the difference. A leading Southern California personal injury law firm, Legal Defenders has helped many victims of ridesharing-related accidents, and we are here to alert ridesharing accident victims that appropriate compensation can be highly achievable.
What’s Different about Uber and Lyft collisions?
Most ordinary drivers carry only enough car insurance to protect their assets. For individuals without much property or other assets, it’s typical to carry only the legally required amount or $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident for injuries. That means that being the victim of an accident caused by a driver with few assets typically limits an individual’s ability to obtain financial compensation. The situation changes dramatically, however, when a ride-sharing vehicle is involved.
What does this mean for accident victims?
The $1 million in liability carried by ridesharing drivers can benefit four separate groups of victims:
- Drivers injured in collisions where an Uber or Lyft driver was at fault;
- Passengers injured in either vehicle where a ridesharing driver was at fault;
- Pedestrians injured by a ridesharing driver;
- Uber or Lyft drivers injured in an accident where another driver was at fault
If you or someone you love was injured in circumstances like those above, there is a very good chance that he or she might be able to recover all or most of their financial and other loses. While no amount of money can ever fully compensate for the pain and suffering that comes with a serious accident, appropriate compensation can make the recovery process a great deal less stressful, and speed the path to resuming a normal life following an accident.
