Uber and Lyft Accidents
If you have been hurt as a passenger in a ridesharing app such as Uber or Lyft, Katz Law can help you recover damages for your injuries. While ridesharing apps and their drivers have helped transport millions of people from one place to another, these drivers are often negligent and careless when transporting passengers. Uber and Lyft drivers are often seen speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, making unsafe turns, and driving erratically to get to their next destination. After all, these ridesharing drivers benefit from getting their passengers to the destination quicker so they can pick up the next passenger in line. Unfortunately, this carries a significant risk of an accident.
California law now requires that all Uber and Lyft drivers carry an insurance policy with a $1 million in coverage for death, personal injury, or property damage. Fortunately, the law also requires Uber and Lyft to provide uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage for their drivers and passengers. In other words, if you were involved in a car accident while riding as an Uber or Lyft passenger, and the driver did not have insurance or ran from the scene, you may still be able to recover from Uber or Lyft for damages suffered. These potential damages include medical costs, lost wages, loss of earnings, and pain and suffering.
An experienced attorney at Katz Law can help you obtain damages for your injuries. We will do all the legwork such as gathering evidence, examining the scene of the accident, obtaining surveillance footage, and much more. Insurance companies will likely fight hard on behalf of Uber and Lyft drivers to limit the amount you can recover. However, retaining one of our competent attorneys who is well aware of the law and the Uber/Lyft insurance framework, is pivotal to your recovery.
