Injured on a Ride Share Provider
With the expansion of ride-sharing services in the Venice Beach, CA area, you may not be the one behind the wheel when an accident occurs; but you still may be seriously injured.While calling Uber®, Lyft®, or any other type of ride-hailing service may be hassle-free and budget-friendly, it isn't always safe. And, since you are not operating the car or truck, you also aren't in control of your fate. You would assume 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 desired destination safely, but regrettably 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), meaning you are at greater risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved with a traffic accident while a paying passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a ride share?

Limousines and Cabs
Contracting a traditional taxi cab or limousine service is a little different. Because they have been available so long, the legal complexities and procedures are much more clear. While ride hailing services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxis and limos have been around since before cars were invented! The basic 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 taxi cabs and limos are frequently 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 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 a traffic accident involving a minicab or chauffeur driven car - even if you are in a different vehicle - will also call for the ability of a professional attorney.

- Establishing responsibility - Who is at fault and to what degree?
- Insurance protection - Did you purchase extra insurance from the rental-car organization? What does your private insurance protection provide? Who pays first?

Rear End Crashes
Even if you do every single thing correctly, you can still be involved in a major accident. One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end collisions and make up 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your car is stopped 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 propelled forward when contact occurs. 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 powerful the "unbalanced force" will be, and the greater 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 damage, and you should contact us to assess that damage and your potential solutions.You need an advocate who will fight for you and your rights. You need Law Offices of John C. Ye, APLC. Call us at (877) 278-6890 to receive the Venice Beach, CA area's best legal representation.

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%.
