Injured on a Ride Share Service
With the surge of ride-sharing services in the Pedley, CA area, you may not be the one behind the wheel when an accident occurs; but you still may be seriously injured.While contacting Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride hailing service may be easy, it isn't always safe to use. And, since you are not in command of the vehicle, you also aren't in control of your circumstances. You would be expecting that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have exceptional capabilities that complement their ability to get you to your final destination safely, but regretfully that is not 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), which means 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 rideshare? 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 we know the terrain.

Limousines and Taxi
Contracting a traditional minicab or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been in existence for awhile, the legal complexities and procedures are much more apparent. While ride-hailing services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxi cabs and limos have been around since before cars were motorized! The major difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying business; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limo services are usually locally owned or operated.Because taxis and limos are traditionally corporately/company owned, they may be regulated even more rigorously and subject to more substantial standards of care. Our team of experienced attorneys 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 taxi cab or limo - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also need the abilities of a highly trained lawyer.

Rental Car Accidents
If you are involved in a traffic accident while operating a rental car, you will definitely have to deal with extra inconveniences not present in the case of a vehicle accident with your own car or truck.Along with the tension 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 deal with a corporate entity like a rental car company adds an additional layer of complexity to your situation. Factors like:
- Establishing responsibility - Who is at fault and to what extent?
- Insurance protection - Did you pay for extra insurance from the rental car company? What does your private insurance protection cover? Who pays first?

Hit From Behind Accidents
Even if you do everything appropriately, you can still be involved in a collision. One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end crashes and make up 29% of all accidents (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 propelled 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 serious trauma.The more rapidly the vehicle that hits you is going, the more potent the "unbalanced force" will be, and the more substantial 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 will need to contact us to assess that damage and your potential solutions.You need an advocate 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 Pedley, 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 expenses. Since California is a Comparative fault state, you are permitted to receive reasonable and customary medical related costs, but you are only able to receive the proportion that is not your fault. So, if the vehicle accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you ought to recover 100 percent of the damages. If, however, you are determined to be at fault in any way, your reimbursement will be lessened by the proportionate percentage.For example, if you were hit by a motor vehicle (they were at fault) but you were not wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% caused by your seatbelt infraction, your payment may be reduced by 30%.
