Injured While Ride-sharing Provider
With the surge of ride-sharing services in the Citrus, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident occurs; but you still may be seriously injured.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride share provider may be helpful, it isn't always safe to use. And, since you are not in command of the motor vehicle, you also aren't in control of your destiny. You would hope 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 destination safely, but unfortunately that isn't 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), as a result you are a lot more at risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are associated with a traffic accident while a passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a ride-sharing? Call us today at (877) 278-6890. This is especially true as the legal landscape of these companies continues to develop; laws may vary across state lines and we know the terrain. So if you are involved in an accident while a passenger in a ride-sharing service, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free, no commitment consultation.
Limousines and Taxi Cab
Using the services of a traditional cab or limo service is a little different. Because they have been available so long, the legal complexities and procedures are much more established. While ride hailing services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxi cabs and limousines have been around since before cars had motors! The primary difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying company; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and chauffeur driven car services are usually locally owned or operated.Because taxi cabs and limos are typically corporately/company owned, they may be regulated even more stringently and subject to more substantial standards of care. Our team of experienced legal representatives 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. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC today for a FREE CONSULTATION.It goes without saying that getting in an accident with a minicab or chauffeur driven car - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also call for the expertise of an experienced law firm.

Rental Car Accidents
If you are involved in a vehicle accident while operating a rental car, you can expect to have to deal with extra inconveniences not present in the case of a car accident with your private car or truck.Along with the anxiety of the accident, any injuries, any property damage, and the physical and emotional well-being of all people involved in the actual accident, having to deal with a corporate entity like a rental car company adds an additional layer of complication to your situation. Factors like:
- Understanding liability - Who is to blame and to what extent?
- Insurance protection - Did you pay for extra insurance from the rental car business? What does your private insurance plan provide? Who pays first?

Rear End Accidents
Even if you do every single thing properly, you can still be involved in a traffic accident. One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end collisions and occur in 29% of all crashes (NHTSA, 2017)So if your car 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 propelled 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 acute bodily injury.The more rapidly the vehicle that hits you is going, the stronger the "unbalanced force" will be, and the more significant 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 damages, and you will need to contact us to assess that damage and your potential alternatives.You need an ally who will fight for you and your rights. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 to receive the Citrus, CA area's best legal counsel.

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-related bills. 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 portion that is not your responsibility. So, if the car accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second party, you ought to recover 100% of the damages. If, however, you are found to be in the wrong in any way, your reimbursement will be diminished by the proportionate 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 trauma you suffered were 30% caused by your seat belt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
