Our Experienced Rideshare Accident Lawyers Can Help

Who is Liable for Damages After an Uber or Lyft Rideshare Accidents in California?

The most common question after being in an accident with a rideshare company is who is liable? And Can I sue the company? The answers depend largely in part on the circumstances pertaining to the collision. Our experienced rideshare accident attorneys at Razavi Law Group consider a few factors in order to determine who is liable:

  • Whether you were the rideshare driver, a rideshare passenger, a pedestrian hit by a rideshare driver, or a driver or passenger in another vehicle;
  • The cause of your accident (who was in the wrong); and
  • Whether the rideshare driver was on duty at the time of the car accident.

It is important to keep in mind that Uber and Lyft ensure their drivers with a $1 million insurance policy while they are on duty. This means that if they hit and seriously injure you, or you are hit and seriously injured while in the car, their insurance policy will cover them up to $1 million dollars. However, their insurance policy does not cover their drivers while they are on duty so it is important to note if they were or not as their own personal insurance claims would be in effect.

Whether or not Uber and Lyft’s insurance liability is one of the many tedious parts to a rideshare accident which is why hiring a lawyer is extremely important after such an accident occurs so that their insurance does not try to undercut what you are rightly entitled to. At Razavi Law Group, we are here to ensure that you get the highest settlement possible to ensure that your damages incurred have been fully compensated for.

What to Do After an Uber Or Lyft Accident?

Every car accident, especially those involving a rideshare company, always starts at the crash scene.  To build and strength your case to receive a fair settlement, here are some helpful next steps:

  • Call the police, and if needed call for medical assistance;
  • Take detailed photos of the crash scene such as physical injuries, positions of vehicles, property damage, traffic signs. The more information the attorneys at Razavi Law Group have of the crash scene the better we can represent your case;
  • Take pictures of drivers licenses, license plates, and drivers’ insurance information;
  • Write down insurance information of every driver involved in the crash;
  • Visit a doctor immediately to assess injuries; and
  • Contact California rideshare accident attorneys.

Last year, I was in a car accident and was injured. My chiropractor recommended me contacting Razavi Law Group, and I never regretted contacting them! The whole office team was caring and responsive. They were able to help me get a settlement to help cover my medical and some extra to cover other losses. Cameron was my main point of contact and he was just the best!! He always knew who I was and I felt like he truly cared about me as a person and not just as a case. I highly recommend them!

My experience with Razavi Law Group has been a very pleasant one. The attorneys and paralegals (Gabe and Amber are total rockstars!) were incredibly supportive and helpful throughout the process. Their professionalism and candor made it easy for me to talk to them and ask never-ending questions. Importantly, they provided me with much needed guidance as this was my first time reaching out to an injury attorney for help. Razavi Law Group was recommended to me and I’m 100% glad I reached out to them. They helped with my healing and felt that they really fought for me. I can’t thank them enough for working hard and making me feel like my case matters. I highly recommend Razavi Law Group!!!
