Cases Our Chino Uber and Lyft Accident Attorneys Represent

When Uber and Lyft were first introduced, they were credited with helping to reduce the number of drunk driving accidents. Cost-effective and convenient, the popularity of these companies quickly soared. Unfortunately, as the number of Uber and Lyft drivers on the road increased, so did accident risks. While both companies heavily promote their safety record, a 2019 study by the University of Chicago states that ride sharing accidents are responsible for close to a five percent increase in traffic fatalities. The number of non-fatal crashes has risen steadily as well. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we act as a strong legal advocate on behalf of accident victims. Cases our Uber and Lyft accident attorneys represent include:

  • Car accidents involving Uber or Lyft drivers and other motorists;
  • Collisions involving Uber or Lyft drivers and fixed objects;
  • Uber and Lyft accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists;
  • Personal injuries that occur during an Uber or Lyft trip.

What Happens If I Get Into An Uber or Lyft Accident?

Whether you are a passenger or a motorist involved, damages you suffer as a result of Uber and Lyft accidents have the potential to be severe. When any type of incident involving a ridesharing company occurs, you need to report it to law enforcement immediately. Get the name of the driver and the company they work for as well and seek medical care for your injuries, regardless of severity. Failing to do so could jeopardize your health and your rights in filing a claim. Your next step should be to contact Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. Our legal team can conduct a thorough investigation into your ride sharing accident to determine how it happened and who is responsible. Among the leading causes in cases our Chino Uber and Lyft accident attorneys handle include:

  • Speeding, tailgating, and other aggressive driving behaviors;
  • Distracted driving, such as using cell phones, texting, or changing GPS settings while behind the wheel;
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medications;
  • Drowsy driving, which mimics many of the same effects as being under the influence and can cause Uber and Lyft drivers to file asleep behind the wheel.

How Do I File An Uber or Lyft Accident Claim?

Both Uber and Lyft have million-dollar insurance policies covering their drivers in the event a crash or collision occurs. However, filing a claim against these companies often proves challenging. Uber and Lyft have teams of attorneys on their side, protecting them from liability. To protect yourself, get Harris Personal Injury Lawyers on yours. While you focus on recovering from your injuries, our Chino car accident attorneys can focus on getting you the compensation you deserve. We aggressively negotiate with insurance representatives both for the ridesharing company and the at-fault driver to ensure you get the maximum amount in any settlements. If a reasonable amount cannot be reached or your injuries are severe, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit against the driver, the company they work for, and any others involved.

How Much Is An Uber or Lyft Accident Claim Worth?

While the exact amount you may be entitled to in an Uber or Lyft accident claim will vary based on the circumstances involved and the severity of your injuries, common types of compensation available under the California Civil Code include:

  • Coverage of current medical costs and compensation for any future expenses you are likely to incur;
  • Reimbursement of lost wages and compensation for future losses in earnings due to ongoing disabilities;
  • Compensation for pain, suffering, and any loss of enjoyment in life your injuries cause;
  • Punitive damages, which is an additional amount the ridesharing company may have to pay if they are guilty of particularly willful and negligent conduct.
