Rideshare Accidents

Los Angeles Rideshare Accident Lawyers

Rideshare companies, such as Uber and Lyft, have revolutionized how we commute in Southern California, offering a convenient, cost-effective alternative to traditional taxi services. 

The popularity of these rideshare services is evident in the bustling streets of Los Angeles and its surrounding communities, including Glendale, Pasadena, and Santa Clarita. However, the surge in rideshare usage has also led to an increased frequency of rideshare-related accidents.

Getting into an accident while using a rideshare service can be a frightening and stressful experience. No one expects such occurrences, but we do expect rideshare drivers to be responsible and accountable when accidents occur. Unfortunately, rideshare companies often put their profits and reputations above the safety of their drivers and passengers. 

This is why the team at Atoyan Law is committed to helping rideshare accident victims recover full and fair compensation in personal injury claims related to these companies and their insurers. We know that rideshare companies are not always eager to take responsibility for the actions of their drivers, so we take action to compel them to do so through aggressive negotiation or litigation.

Rideshare Accidents in Southern California

A rideshare accident is any accident that occurs while using a rideshare service. Rideshare companies, such as Lyft, Uber, and Via, may be accountable for the actions of their drivers, even when the rideshare company does not directly employ those drivers. 

This means that rideshare companies may be responsible for any accidents that occur while their services are being used, including accidents that happen while the driver is on their way to pick up a customer and throughout the entire travel time until the customer is dropped off. 

However, rideshare accidents can occur in various ways and to multiple people, from the rideshare passenger to the rideshare driver or to drivers and passengers in other vehicles who are involved in the collision. The path to compensation for all those involved can be convoluted. 

Complications in Pursuing Rideshare Accident Compensation

One of the complicating factors is the multitude of insurers who may be involved. Many rideshare companies have insurance coverage separate from their drivers' auto insurance policies. The insurance from the other party involved in the accident may also be relevant. Maneuvering through these intersecting insurance policies can be daunting for accident victims. 

The type of accident plays a critical role in determining liability and subsequent compensation. For instance, if you're a passenger in a rideshare vehicle, the driver's or company's insurance is generally responsible for settling any injury claims. 

However, suppose you're a rideshare driver involved in an accident. In that case, the liability may shift between your personal insurance and the company's insurance, depending on the phase of the ride. 

Lastly, if you're a driver or passenger in another vehicle involved in an accident with a rideshare vehicle, the compensation pathway might involve dealing not only with your own insurance company but also the rideshare company's insurer or the rideshare driver’s personal insurer.

Recovering Compensation After a Rideshare Accident

Rideshare companies are not always eager to take responsibility for the actions of their drivers. When they do take responsibility, they often try to minimize the gravity of the accident and the damages suffered by the victim. In many cases, rideshare companies will deny that the accident was a rideshare accident at all. 

When we take on a rideshare accident case, we will investigate the accident to determine how it happened. We will also examine the rideshare company's policies and procedures to see if they contributed to the accident. 

If so, we can hold the rideshare company liable. If not, we can still fight to recover compensation for our client's injuries and other losses through whatever party/insurer is liable.
