Injured on a Ride Share Service
With the explosion of ride-sharing services in the Brea, CA area, you may not be the one behind the wheel when an accident happens; but you still may be hurt.While contacting Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of rideshare service may be simple and easy, it isn't always safe. And, since you are not in control of the automobile, you also aren't in control of your circumstances. You would assume that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have highly-evolved capabilities that complement their ability to get you to your desired destination safely, but regretfully that is not regularly 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), meaning you are more at risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved with an accident while a paying passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a rideshare? Call us today at (877) 278-6890. This is especially true as the legal landscape of these companies continues to change; laws may vary across state lines and we know the terrain. So if you are involved in an accident while riding in a ride share service, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free, no obligation consultation.
Limousines and Taxi Cab
Contracting a traditional taxi or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been available for awhile, the legal complexities and processes are much more established. While rideshare services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, cabs and limos have been around since before cars were invented! The principal difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying organization; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limo services are usually locally owned.Because taxi cabs and limousines are usually company/corporately owned, they may be regulated even more stringently and subject to more substantial standards of care. Our team of experienced attorneys will ensure that you receive the care and attention 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 a crash with a cab or limo - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also necessitate the expertise of a seasoned law firm.

Hit From Behind Crashes
Even if you do everything right, you can still be involved in a traffic accident. One of the most frequent types of accidents are rear-end collisions and make up 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your vehicle is sitting at a stop sign or intersection (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 forced forward when contact is established. 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 significant bodily injury.The more rapidly the vehicle that hits you is going, the more powerful the "unbalanced force" will be, and the greater the harm 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 need to contact us to assess that damage and your potential remedies.You need an ally who will fight for you and your legal rights. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 to receive the Brea, CA area's best legal counsel.

Absolutely. For that matter, you should never talk to a claims adjuster until after you’ve spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not represent you. It is their duty to save their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you the maximum payment, so they're going to offer you less. Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC will get you more.
They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your medical-related costs. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are allowed to receive reasonable and customary healthcare costs, but you are only eligible for the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a different person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your settlement will be discounted by the corresponding percentage.For example, if you were struck by a car (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you received were 30% as a result of your seatbelt violation, your settlement may be reduced by 30%.
