Who is Held Liable in an Uber or Lyft Accident in California?

In California, figuring out who caused the Uber or Lyft accident can be complicated. It depends on several factors, like whether the rideshare driver was working during the accident and if they were at fault.

  1. If the Rideshare Driver Is Working and At Fault: If an Uber or Lyft driver causes an accident while logged into their app and either waiting for a ride request, heading to pick up a passenger, or during a trip with a passenger, then the company’s insurance might cover damages. Both Uber and Lyft have large insurance policies for such situations.
  2. If Another Driver Causes the Accident: If another driver is responsible for causing an accident that involves your rideshare vehicle, then that driver’s personal car insurance is usually considered liable to cover damages.
  3. When The Rideshare App Is Off: If the rideshare driver isn’t logged into their app at the time of an incident – meaning they’re not officially working – their car insurance would handle any claims since they are considered regular drivers in this scenario.
  4. Complicated Scenarios: Sometimes, accidents involve multiple parties’ faults or unique circumstances, which make liability determination more complex—requiring detailed investigation by legal professionals experienced in handling such cases.

Understanding these distinctions helps determine who should rightfully compensate victims injured in Uber or Lyft accidents within California’s jurisdiction—a task best navigated with assistance from an experienced San Bernardino Uber accident lawyer 

California Fault Laws

The approach to handling car accident claims is governed by a “fault” system. This means that the party found responsible for causing an accident is also liable for any resulting damages and injuries.

Under this system, victims of car accidents have several options:

  • They can file a claim with their own insurance company (who will then seek reimbursement from the at-fault driver’s insurer)
  • Directly file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance provider
  • Pursue personal injury litigation in court to recover damages.

California law requires all drivers to carry minimum amounts of liability insurance: $15,000 for injury/death to one person, $30,000 for injury/death per accident if multiple people are hurt, and $5,000 for property damage. These requirements ensure that compensation is available up to these limits in case an insured driver is deemed at fault.

For more information about these exact automobile accident laws, speak with an experienced San Bernardino Uber and Lyft accident lawyer.


How Our San Bernardino Uber Accident Law Firm Can Help

At our San Bernardino Uber Accident Law Firm, we are dedicated to assisting victims in navigating the complexities of their claims and securing comprehensive compensation. Our experienced legal team specializes in various areas to ensure you receive full support throughout your recovery journey.

  • Medical Bill Assistance: The cost of medical treatment can quickly become overwhelming. We’re here to help manage and negotiate your medical bills, striving for coverage that minimizes out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Claiming Various Types of Damages: Beyond immediate losses, our firm is skilled at identifying and claiming compensation for less obvious damages, such as road defects that contributed to the accident or automobile defects that may have exacerbated injuries. These nuanced aspects, often overlooked by trial lawyers, can significantly impact the total compensation received.
  • Emotional Recovery Support: Recognizing that accidents inflict physical and emotional trauma, we advocate for damages covering pain and suffering. Your emotional well-being is most important, so we aim for settlements to acknowledge this aspect.

Deadline To File A Personal Injury Claim

After an accident involving Uber, Lyft, or any other rideshare scheme, victims must act swiftly. The legal timeframe to file a personal injury claim—known as the statute of limitations—is two years in California. This means you have up to two years from the accident date to initiate legal action for compensation.

Delaying beyond this period could result in losing your right to seek damages altogether. Victims of rideshare accidents need to be aware of this deadline and consult with a qualified attorney early on to ensure their rights are protected and they can pursue the compensation they deserve effectively.

What Should You Do Following The Accident? 

Following an auto accident involving a rideshare, consider these important steps:

  1. Ensure Safety: Move to a safe location if possible and check for injuries.
  2. Call 911: Report the accident immediately to ensure police and medical help are dispatched.
  3. Exchange Information: Swap contact and insurance details with other involved parties but avoid discussing fault.
  4. Document the Scene: Take photos of vehicles, injuries, road conditions, and any relevant signs or signals.
  5. Gather Witness Details: Collect names and contact information from anyone who witnessed the incident.
  6. Seek Medical Attention: Visit a healthcare professional even if you feel fine; some injuries manifest later.
  7. Notify Your Insurance Company: Inform them about the accident without admitting liability.
  8. Consult With An Attorney: Speak with a qualified personal injury lawyer in San Bernardino County to explore your legal options.

Gathering Evidence With Your Experienced Attorney 

Here’s what you should focus on collecting immediately after the incident, some of which you will already have if you followed our steps above:

  1. Police Documentation: Obtain a copy of the police report from the accident scene. This official document can provide an authoritative overview and may help establish fault.
  2. Medical Records: Secure all records related to treatments received for injuries sustained during the accident. These documents are key in demonstrating the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life.
  3. Eyewitness Statements: Collect statements and contact information from anyone who witnessed the accident. Eyewitness accounts can offer valuable perspectives that support your claim.
  4. Photo/Video Evidence: Take or collect photos and videos capturing various aspects like vehicle positions, road conditions, visible damages, traffic signs/signals near the site, and any personal injuries incurred. Visual proof adds another layer of authenticity to your claim.
  5. Examples of Driver Negligence: Work with your attorney to identify specific examples of negligence by the rideshare driver that contributed to the accident—such as speeding, distracted driving (e.g., using a phone), or failure to obey traffic laws.

Gathering this comprehensive set of evidence swiftly—with guidance from your lawyer—enhances understanding and effectively demonstrates liability and negligence on another party.


How Much to Expect to Pay

At Feher Law, you’ll find that the approach to payment for personal injury attorney services is designed with your financial ease in mind. Operating on a contingency fee basis means you won’t pay anything upfront. Instead, the fee charged will be a percentage of the total compensation awarded to you after winning your case—a system ensuring legal representation is accessible regardless of your current financial state.

The advantage here is clear: no financial risk is involved when you hire one of our experienced personal injury lawyers. You’re not required to make out-of-pocket payments when economic challenges may already be heightened by medical expenses and lost wages due to being unable to work.
