Who Is Liable in a Rideshare Accident in California?

If the accident that leaves you injured involves a rideshare driver, the matter of pinpointing liability in your claim is somewhat more complicated than the already complicated matter of determining liability in other car crash claims.

Consider the following potential scenarios:

  • If you are a passenger in the Uber or Lyft vehicle and your driver’s negligence causes the accident, you’ll file your claim with the rideshare company’s provider.
  • If you are in another vehicle but are injured in an accident that’s caused by a rideshare driver’s negligence and they either have a passenger or are on the way to pick one up at the time of the accident, the rideshare company’s robust policy remains in play.
  • If the negligent Lyft or Uber driver who leaves you injured in an accident is on the app but is waiting for their next passenger to be assigned, you’ll file your claim with the driver’s personal coverage, which they’re required by the rideshare company to carry. If your losses exceed this coverage, the rideshare company’s policy will take up the slack. 
  • If the negligent rideshare driver who causes you to be injured is off the rideshare app – even momentarily – when the accident occurs, you’ll file your claim with the driver’s personal insurance provider just like you would for any other car accident claim.
  • Finally, if you’re injured as a passenger in a rideshare vehicle but another driver is responsible for the accident, you’ll file your claim with the at-fault driver’s provider – the same way you would in any other car accident.  

If you suffer serious injuries in the rideshare accident in question, you may need to file your claim with two separate insurance policies, which translates to both the Uber or Lyft driver’s personal coverage and the rideshare company’s policy.

California’s At-Fault Laws

The State of California employs a fault-based insurance system that focuses on negligence and requires the liable driver to cover the injured party’s legal damages – or losses. If you are injured in an Uber or Lyft accident in which you and the rideshare driver share fault, you can seek compensation for the percentage of fault that the rideshare driver is deemed responsible for.


Factors to Consider in Rideshare Accidents

While rideshare drivers are paid to transport passengers from place to place, they’re not professional drivers in the traditional sense. This means that they’re not required to carry a commercial driver’s license and don’t need any special driving experience to perform the job. Drivers for rideshare services, however, do take on considerable responsibility regarding the safety of their passengers.

Additionally, they face the following challenges:

  • They’re required to interact with the rideshare app behind the wheel, which many consider a built-in distraction. 
  • They have to enter and exit the flow of traffic on a regular basis and are required to make frequent stops and starts – each of which is a well-known risk factor when it comes to safe driving.
  • They’re tasked with locating strangers who are waiting to be picked up and must find safe locations for picking up and dropping off their passengers.
  • They’re often required to drive in locations they’re not familiar with, which can be challenging in and of itself
  • Rideshare drivers make their living – or a portion of it – behind the wheel, and – as a result – some bypass the hours-of-service rules imposed upon them to continue earning, ignoring the very real risk associated with drowsy driving.
  • Finally, rideshare drivers aren’t immune to the common forms of driver negligence that many motorists engage in, including distraction, impairment, exhaustion, aggression, excess speed, and failure to follow the rules of the road.

There are a range of factors that can contribute to rideshare accidents and that support the general finding that the rideshare concept has increased dangerous accidents on our roadways.

How Our California Rideshare Accident Law Firm Can Help

At Feher Law, our experienced California rideshare accident attorneys are committed to carefully assessing the full extent of your covered losses – in focused pursuit of your claim’s best possible conclusion. Including in all the following categories:

  • Property damage to your vehicle and any of its contents
  • Your medical bills, which may be ongoing and may need to address complications and secondary health concerns 
  • Your lost income, including any losses that relate to your career path or earning capacity 
  • Your physical and emotional pain and suffering, which can exceed all your other covered losses combined in the wake of a violent rideshare accident 

Important Initial Advice!

If you find yourself in the difficult position of having been injured in a rideshare accident, your claim will be specific to the unique situation at hand, but there are important steps that are universally helpful, including:

  • Seek the immediate medical attention that you require – serious injuries can be masked by the shock and adrenaline rush you experience, and waiting until days after the accident isn’t a good plan. Carefully following all of your doctor’s advice and instructions, as well as attending all scheduled appointments, is also key.
  • Schedule a free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer who has considerable success handling complex rideshare accident claims as soon as you’re able to do so. 
  • Keep in mind that you’re not required to make a statement to the insurance company and that refraining from doing so is to your advantage. The insurance provider is motivated by profits, and they’re adept at obtaining innocent statements from claimants like you who go on to damage their own claims. 
  • If the insurance company has questions they want answered, refer them to your rideshare accident lawyer in California. 
  • When you post on social media, you might as well be speaking directly to the insurance company, which is reason enough to pause your social media activity while your claim is pending.

Deadlines to Be Aware Of

Like other states, California has a statute of limitations – or time constraint – when it comes to filing a lawsuit in response to a rideshare accident. Once the accident occurs, California law stipulates that you have only two years to file a lawsuit. If you’ve been injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver’s negligence, however, the aftermath can be chaotic, and the claim process can be lengthy. 

In other words, your two-year window of opportunity can pass more quickly than you realize, and in the meantime, your opportunity to fairly address the losses you’ve suffered will come to an end. An experienced Uber and Lyft accident attorney can help, and the time to reach out for their trusted legal guidance is now.

Essential Evidence to Gather

The backbone of every strong California Uber and Lyft accident claim is evidence – accompanied by the skilled legal representation necessary to use that evidence as a means of establishing a claim that’s difficult to refute.

The categories of evidence that are likely to play a role in your case include:

  • The testimony of eyewitnesses
  • The police report and any other official documentation generated, such as any tickets that are issued 
  • Photos and videos taken in the buildup to the accident and beyond
  • Footage captured by dashcams and security cameras located near the accident scene
  • Accident reconstruction models that help flesh out how the accident happened
  • Your medical records and your doctor’s report regarding the accident-related injuries you’ve suffered

While you navigate the difficult path toward recovery, allow the experienced California Uber and Lyft attorneys at Feher Law to deftly shoulder the legal burden and skillfully guide your claim toward an advantageous resolution.

What Can I Expect to Pay?

You’re facing immense financial losses as an accident victim, and this can make it difficult to pull the trigger on hiring an experienced lawyer to defend your rights and rightful compensation, but it shouldn’t. Our Uber and Lyft rideshare attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that our pay is contingent upon – or based upon – the outcome of your claim, and no upfront fees are involved. 

If your claim prevails with either a settlement or court award, we will receive a percentage that you agreed to ahead of time. If your claim isn’t successful, however, you won’t owe anything.

Why Choose Us Over Other California Rideshare Accident Lawyers?

Working closely with an accomplished rideshare attorney at Feher Law can afford you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’re in good hands, which includes:

  • Your claim is highly specific, and we tailor our services to meet your unique needs. 
  • We are committed to being there when you need us, and that means answering our phones around the clock.
