Injured on a Ride Share Provider
With the surge of ride-sharing services in the North Tustin, CA area, you may not be the one behind the wheel when an accident happens; but you still may be seriously injured.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of rideshare service may be simple and easy, it isn't always safe to use. And, since you are not operating the vehicle, you also aren't in control of your destiny. You would be expecting that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have exceptional capabilities that complement their capacity to get you to your desired destination safely, but regretfully that isn't always 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), consequently you are a lot more at risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are associated with an accident while a passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a rideshare?

Cabs and Limousines
Choosing a traditional taxi or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been available so long, the legal complexities and processes are much more apparent. While ride hailing services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, cabs and limos have been around since before cars existed! 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 chauffeur driven car services are usually locally owned or operated.Because cabs and limos are generally corporately/company owned, they may be regulated even more strictly 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.

Ye, APLC today for a FREE CONSULTATION.It goes without saying that getting in an accident involving a cab or limo - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also necessitate the expertise of an experienced lawyer.

Rental Car Accidents

Factors like:
- Determining responsibility - Who is at fault and to what extent?
- Insurance coverage - Did you pay for extra insurance from the rental-car business? What does your personal insurance protection cover? Who pays first?

Rear End Crashes
Even if you do every single thing correctly, you can still be involved in a car accident. One of the most frequent types of accidents are rear-end crashes and occur in 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your motor 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 made. 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 moving, the more potent 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 damage, and you should contact us to assess that damage and your potential alternatives.You need an ally who will fight for you and your protection under the law. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 to receive the North Tustin, CA area's best legal representation.

Absolutely. In fact, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to a legal professional. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance carrier, they do not work for you. It is their duty to protect their organization's money, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily provide you with the greatest settlement, so they're going to offer you less.

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%.
