Have You Been Injured In An Uber Or Lyft Accident In California?
Driving in Los Angeles and San Diego, CA can be a risky adventure. For many reasons, the majority of people have turned to rideshares as their way of transportation. With billions of dollars in marketing, Uber and Lyft have grown substantially. Uber and Lyft have become the more predominant rideshare companies in the on-demand transportation area in Los Angeles, CA and San Diego, CA.
Uber and Lyft drivers like the ability to set their own schedule and the access to the quick money it can make them. Passengers of Uber and Lyft like the ease of the app and the ability to get from place to place and not have to worry about driving around with the masses. With so many people turning to Uber and Lyft, the traffic volume has largely increased, which in turn has led to an increase in traffic accidents, injuries, and even fatalities.
Wondering Who Is Liable For Your Rideshare Accident Injuries?
Uber and Lyft classify their drivers as independent contractors. Uber and Lyft even require their drivers to have their own insurance policies. However, Uber and Lyft have and carry the same type of auto insurance coverage as their drivers. Uber and Lyft’s insurance coverage starts when the driver starts the rideshare app and continues until the driver has dropped off all passengers who accepted the trip.
Because Uber and Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors and require their drivers to have their own insurance, Uber and Lyft will tend to try and avoid any liability for accidents caused by their drivers if they can. However, legally, if the driver is at fault, Uber insurance covers liability, collision, and medical. If the driver is not at fault, Uber insurance covers liability, collision, uninsured/underinsured, and medical. Nevertheless, if you are injured as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft, there are legal solutions, and you should not hesitate to obtain those solutions.
