<h2>Injured in a Rideshare Service</h2>With the boom of ride-sharing services in the West Hollywood, CA area, you may not be the one driving when an accident occurs; but you still may be seriously injured.While contacting Uber®, Lyft®, or any <em>other</em> type of ride hailing service may be simple, 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 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 final destination safely, but regretfully that isn't consistently the situation. Studies show that since 2011 ride-sharing companies have increased traffic deaths in the US by 2%-3% (<a href="https://research.chicagobooth.edu/-/media/research/stigler/pdfs/workingpapers/27thecostofconvenience.pdf?la=en&hash=A15B1513F98D7A17B9E37F78DD2EBDC4C6338BFA">University of Chicago and Rice University</a>), meaning you are at greater risk today than before these services existed.So what should you do if you are involved with an accident while a paying passenger in a "commercial" vehicle driven as part of a ride-hailing?

Because they have been around for awhile, the legal ramifications and procedures are much more clear. While rideshare services like Uber® and Lyft® are relatively new, taxis and limos have been around since before cars were invented! The major difference between dealing with Uber® and Lyft® or a taxi/limousine service is the underlying company; Uber® and Lyft® are nationwide, while taxi and limousine services are usually locally owned or operated.Because taxis and limos are generally corporately/company owned, they may be regulated even more strictly and subject to higher standards of care.

Factors like:<ul><li>Determining responsibility - Who is at fault and to what degree?</li><li>Insurance protection - Did you pay for extra insurance from the rental-car organization?

Who pays first?</li></ul>In short, while being involved in an car accident is difficult enough, the additional duty of reporting to the rental car company can be overwhelming.

One of the most common types of accidents are rear-end collisions and occur in 29% of all collisions (NHTSA, 2017)So if your vehicle 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 <strong><em>you</em></strong> are also "at rest" <em>inside</em> 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 bodily injury.The more quickly the vehicle that hits you is going, the stronger the "unbalanced force" will be, and the more significant the harm to you and your vehicle. It doesn't matter, however, if the vehicle that hits you is moving fast <em>or</em> slow, there will be damage, and you need to contact us to assess that damage and your potential remedies.You need an advocate who will fight for you and your rights.

Definitely. For that matter, you shouldn’t communicate with a claims adjuster until after you have spoken to an attorney at law. Claims adjusters are employed by the insurance underwriter, they don't represent you. It is their duty to preserve their company's cash, and they can’t accomplish that if they voluntarily offer you the greatest settlement, so they are 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%.
