Our Redondo Beach Uber and Lyft Accident Attorneys Protect Your Rights In Filing A Claim 

According to a 2021 Statista study, companies such as Uber and Lyft report more than $14 billion in net revenue each year. Many people rely on ridesharing services for convenience, to avoid owning a vehicle themselves, and to save on gas and parking fees.  

To meet consumer demand, there is an increasing number of ridesharing drivers on the road. This creates serious safety issues. Uber and Lyft accidents have become more common and can happen in any of the following ways:  

  • Due to crashes and collisions involving other vehicles or fixed objects; 
  • When making sharp turns or abrupt stops, causing passengers to be jolted or throws them from their seats; 
  • Due to mishaps that occur either while waiting for a ride or when getting into the vehicle; 
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents involving Uber, Lyft, or other ridesharing services.   

When the above or other types of ridesharing accidents happen, Harris Personal Injury Lawyers protect your rights in filing a claim. While you focus on your recovery, our Redondo Beach Uber and Lyft accident attorneys focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.  

What Are Common Causes Of Uber and Lyft Accidents In Redondo Beach?  

In addressing ridesharing accident risks, a 2019 Uber safety report highlighted relatively low numbers of passenger fatalities. It failed to mention the large number of personal injuries that happen due to negligence on the part of the company or its drivers.   

Uber and Lyft accidents in Redondo Beach often result in broken bones, damage to muscles or other soft tissues, and potentially debilitating head, back, and neck injuries. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our goal is to get you the compensation you need to recover in a claim. We can conduct a full investigation to determine exactly how your accident happened and who is liable. Among the most common causes in cases our Redondo Beach Uber and Lyft accident attorneys represent include:  

  • Dangerous driving behavior, such as speeding, running red lights, and distracted driving; 
  • Drowsy driving, which is a common problem when ridesharing companies fail to monitor driver shifts; 
  • Vehicle maintenance issues, which increase the likelihood of Uber and Lyft accidents; 
  • Negligence on the part of the ridesharing company, such as failing to properly vet their drivers.  

How Do I Get Compensation For An Uber/Lyft Accident In Redondo Beach?  

Ridesharing companies have million dollar insurance policies in place to protect them and their drivers when accidents happen but getting them to pay presents unique challenges. The company may deny liability, claiming the driver was not logged in at the time or that other motorists were to blame. The ridesharing driver's own insurance policy will likely not cover damages if the vehicle was being used for business purposes.   

How can you get compensation for Uber and Lyft accident injuries? Get Harris Personal Injury Lawyers on your side. Our legal team will investigate your case and gather the evidence needed to support your claim while aggressively negotiating with the ridesharing company and their insurers on your behalf. If your claim is disputed or settlement amounts fail to adequately cover your costs, our Redondo Beach Uber and Lyft accident attorneys will not hesitate in taking those at fault to court. Compensation you may be entitled to in an Uber or Lyft accident lawsuit includes:  

  • Economic damages, which cover actual costs. This includes current and future medical expenses and lost wages.  
  • Non-economic damages, which cover intangible losses. This includes pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment in life due to your injuries.  
  • Punitive damages, which is an additional amount we can push for if the ridesharing driver or the company they work for engaged in particularly willful and negligent behavior.
