Injured on a Ride Share Provider
With the surge of ride-sharing services in the Glendora, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident happens; but you still may be hurt.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride hailing provider may be fast and easy, it isn't always safe. And, since you are not in control of the vehicle, 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 skills that complement their capacity to get you to your desired destination safely, but regrettably that is not consistently the situation. 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 at greater risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved in any sort of accident while a passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a ride sharing?

Taxi Cab and Limousines
Contracting a traditional cab or limo service is a little different. Because they have been available so long, the legal complexities and operations are much more established. While ride-hailing services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, cabs and limos have been around since before cars existed! The basic difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying company; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limousine services are usually locally owned.Because cabs and limousines are generally corporately/company owned, they may be regulated even more rigorously and subject to higher standards of care. Our team of experienced lawyers 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.

Hit From Behind Collisions
Even if you do everything appropriately, you can still be involved in a major accident. One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end crashes and make up 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your vehicle is stopped 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 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 quickly the vehicle that hits you is moving, the stronger the "unbalanced force" will be, and the more significant 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 ought to contact us to assess that damage and your potential solutions.You need an advocate who will fight for you and your protection under the law.

Definitely. In fact, you should never consult with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters work for the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their obligation to protect their organization's cash, and they cannot accomplish that if they voluntarily present you with the highest settlement, so they are going to offer you less.

Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not represent you.

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%.
