Injured in a Rideshare Provider
With the explosion of ride-sharing services in the Brandeis, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident occurs; but you still may be seriously injured.While contacting Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride hailing company may be convenient, it isn't always safe. And, since you are not in control of the motor vehicle, you also aren't in control of your circumstances. You would anticipate that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have exceptional abilities that complement their competence to get you to your final destination safely, but regrettably that is not always the case. Studies show that since 2011 ride-sharing companies have increased traffic deaths in the US by 2%-3% (University of Chicago and Rice University), consequently you are much more at risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved with an accident while a passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a ride hailing? Call us today at (877) 278-6890. This is especially true as the legal landscape of these companies continues to evolve; laws may vary across state lines and our legal team knows the terrain. So if you are involved in an accident while a passenger in a ride hailing service, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free, no obligation consultation.
Limousines and Taxi
Choosing a traditional minicab or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been around so long, the legal implications and processes are much more clear. While rideshare services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxis and limousines have been around since before cars had motors! The principal difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying business; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limousine services are usually locally owned or operated.Because taxi cabs and limousines are traditionally company/corporately owned, they may be regulated even more rigorously and subject to higher standards of care. Our team of experienced legal professionals will ensure that you receive the care and consideration your individual case demands and that you won't get "bullied" by a large transportation company.

Ye, APLC today for a FREE CONSULTATION.It goes without saying that getting in an automobile accident with a cab or chauffeur driven car - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also need the expertise of a seasoned attorney.

Car Rental Accidents
If you are involved in a vehicle accident while operating a rental car, you are going to have to deal with extra complications not present in the instance of a car accident with your own vehicle.Along with the hassle of the accident, any injuries, any property damage, and the physical and emotional well-being of all parties involved in the actual accident, having to contend with a corporate entity like a rental car company adds another layer of complication to your situation. Factors like:
- Determining liability - Who is to blame and to what degree?
- Insurance protection - Did you pay for extra insurance from the car rental business? What does your private insurance policy provide? Who pays first?

Hit From Behind Crashes
Even if you do every single thing appropriately, you can still be involved in a major accident. One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end collisions and occur in 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your motor vehicle is sitting at a stop sign or crossroad (you are "at rest") and the car behind you fails to stop ("an object in motion"), your vehicle will be acted upon by that "unbalanced force" and will be propelled forward when contact occurs. Not only will this damage your vehicle, but since you are also "at rest" inside the vehicle, the "unbalanced force" will also act on your body like it does your car, creating a "whiplash" effect that can cause you serious bodily injury.The more quickly the vehicle that hits you is moving, the stronger the "unbalanced force" will be, and the greater the damage to you and your vehicle. It doesn't matter, however, if the vehicle that hits you is moving fast or slow, there will be damage, and you will want to contact us to assess that damage and your potential solutions.You need an ally who will fight for you and your rights.

Unquestionably. For that matter, you should never speak with a claims adjuster until after you have already spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters are working for the insurance provider, they don't represent you. It is their purpose to save their organization's money, and they can’t do that if they voluntarily present you with the maximum settlement, so they will certainly offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.
They may be accountable for all, a portion, or none of your medical charges. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary medical expenses, but you are only qualified to receive the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the collision is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you ought to recover 100 % of the damages. If, however, you are determined to be at fault in any way, your settlement will be diminished by the proportionate percentage.For example, if you were hit by an automobile (they were at fault) but you weren’t wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seat belt violation, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
