Injured While Ride-sharing Service
With the expansion of ride-sharing services in the Universal City, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident occurs; but you still may be injured.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride hailing provider may be hassle-free and budget-friendly, 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 fate. You would hope that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have exceptional skills that complement their ability to get you to your destination safely, but regretfully that isn't always 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), which means that 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 paying passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a rideshare?

Cabs and Limousines
Using the services of a traditional minicab or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been around for awhile, the legal implications and procedures are much more evident. While rideshare services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxis and limousines have been around since before cars were motorized! The primary 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.Because taxis and limousines are typically 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 minicab or limo - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also necessitate the expertise of an experienced legal firm.
