Rideshare services are becoming more and more popular. If you have suffered an accident while using a service like Uber, Lyft, or a Taxi in Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano, Capistrano Beach or anywhere in the Orange County area, reach out to Rosen Law Offices. Our Dana Point rideshare accident lawyer is experienced in litigating this specific category of personal injury law, and can clearly explain your rights and what can be expected from a lawsuit.
Rideshare services like Lyft and Uber were not even legal in California until 2013. As a relatively new service, personal injury laws determining liability and insurance coverage for rideshare drivers are still being reworked. In a sense, these court proceedings are in the Wild West stage, and your attorney needs to be able to think on their feet and argue cases where there are very few precedents or rules to rely on.
One reason this realm is so complex is because Uber, Lyft and other rideshare companies that hire these drivers consistently claim that they are not responsible for their own driver’s negligent driving—which means the driver’s insurance company will be fighting not only the people injured but also Lyft or Uber in an attempt to mitigate their own responsibility.
In these situations, an attorney that relies on “tired and true” car accident litigation is not going to make much headway. There is no roadmap for how Uber and Lyft cases should be handled. The results of lawsuits from these cases now will influence how the courts handle them in the future.
At Rosen Law Offices, we come up with creative solutions to our client’s personal injury law issues. Every client is given personal attention so that we can understand all of the details of the case and build an argument that will fight for what the client is owed—regardless of which party is held liable.
