Injured during Ride sharing Provider
With the boom of ride-sharing services in the Stevenson Ranch, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident happens; but you still may be seriously injured.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride sharing service may be simple and easy, it isn't always safe to use. And, since you are not in control of the motor vehicle, you also aren't in control of your fate. You would be expecting that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have highly-evolved capabilities that complement their competence to get you to your final destination safely, but unfortunately that is not regularly 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 that you are a lot more at 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?

Limousines and Taxi Cab
Contracting a traditional cab or limo service is a little different. Because they have been available for awhile, the legal implications and operations are much more apparent. While ride share services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxis and limousines have been around since before cars were invented! The key difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying organization; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and chauffeur driven car services are usually locally owned.Because cabs and limousines are usually corporately/company owned, they may be regulated even more rigorously and subject to greater standards of care. Our team of experienced legal professionals 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 an accident with a taxi cab or chauffeur driven car - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also call for the ability of a seasoned legal firm.

- Understanding liability - Who is to blame and to what degree?

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 remedies.You need an advocate who will fight for you and your rights.

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.

They may be responsible for all, a portion, or none of your healthcare 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 responsibility. So, if the automobile accident is determined to be 100% the fault of a second person, you should recover one hundred percent of the damages. If, however, you are found to be to blame in any way, your reimbursement will be decreased by the proportionate amount.For example, if you were hit by a car (they were at fault) but you weren’t wearing a seatbelt (as required under California Vehicle Code Section 27363), and injuries you sustained were 30% due to your seatbelt violation, your legal claim may be reduced by 30%.
