California Uber & Lyft Accidents
Uber and Lyft have grown in popularity over the past several years as a means of transportation. These services are available in an instant, eliminating the need for car payments and maintenance, and can be incredibly affordable. Unfortunately, when an accident occurs, ridesharing can complicate the process of filing for a personal injury claim.
There are four common types of Uber and Lyft incidents in California.
- Injured Driver – You as the contractor for a ridesharing service have suffered injuries while carrying, picking up, and/or dropping off a passenger or passengers.
- Injured Passenger – While in a car driven by the contractor, you have been injured.
- Injured Third Party With Active Driver – You were hit by a driver who was actively working for Uber or Lyft picking up or transporting passengers, not being in the rideshare yourself.
- Injured Third Party With Inactive Driver – You were hit by an Uber or Lyft driver who wasn’t currently working as a contractor with not being in the rideshare yourself.
