Injured in a Rideshare Service
With the explosion of ride-sharing services in the Valley Glen, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident happens; but you still may be injured.While contacting Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride sharing 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 destiny. You would expect that as "professional" drivers, the people behind the wheel of ride-sharing services would have highly-evolved capabilities that complement their ability to get you to your desired destination safely, but unfortunately that isn't 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), consequently you are much more at risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved with a traffic 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 develop; laws may vary across state lines and our legal team knows the terrain. So if you are involved in an accident while riding in a ride hailing service, call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC for a free, no commitment assessment.
Taxi and Limousines
Hiring a traditional cab or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been available so long, the legal ramifications and procedures are much more apparent. While ride-hailing services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxis and limousines have been around since before cars existed! The primary difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying company; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limo services are usually locally owned or operated.Because cabs and limousines are frequently company/corporately owned, they may be regulated even more strictly 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. Call Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC today for a FREE CONSULTATION.It goes without saying that getting in an automobile accident involving a taxi cab or limo - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also necessitate the resources of a seasoned law firm.

Rental Car Accidents
If you are involved in an automobile accident while driving a rental car, you can expect to have to deal with added headaches not present in the case of an 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 people involved in the actual accident, having to fight with a corporate entity like a rental car company adds yet another layer of difficulty to your situation. Factors like:
- Establishing responsibility - Who is to blame and to what extent?
- Insurance coverage - Did you get extra insurance from the rental car organization? What does your private insurance policy provide? Who pays first?

Even if you do everything right, you can still be involved in an accident. One of the most frequent types of accidents are rear-end collisions and occur in 29% of all accidents (NHTSA, 2017)So if your car 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 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 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 damages, and you should contact us to assess that damage and your potential alternatives.You need an ally 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 Valley Glen, CA area's best legal counsel.

Unquestionably. For that matter, you should never speak with a claims adjuster until after you have already spoken to legal counsel. Claims adjusters are working for the insurance provider, they don't represent you. It is their purpose to save their organization's money, and they can’t do that if they voluntarily present you with the maximum settlement, so they will certainly 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-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%.
