Uber & Lyft Accidents

The lawyers at Kalfayan Merjanian are experienced in Uber and Lyft accident cases and work to help their clients pursue maximum compensation for their injuries.
Fighting for Rights in an Uber or Lyft Accident
Uber and Lyft ride services are convenient. But, using these services can have an unexpected risk. While you’re riding in the driver’s private car, you could easily be involved in an accident that leaves you to wonder if you have any rights to receive compensation for your injuries.
Uber or Lyft Passenger Accidents
If you are a passenger in an Uber or Lyft that is involved in an accident, you may benefit from the help of an attorney to settle your case. Often these drivers do not have the means to pay for your injury claims, and it may be necessary to go after Uber or Lyft to get compensation.
The California law states that Uber and Lyft maintain policies and cover their passengers the moment the transaction starts with the company. These policies may cover death, personal injury, and property damage.
Your Uber or Lyft driver’s personal auto insurance policy does not cover you during an accident. The moment the transaction begins, the driver is considered a commercial driver. This is why you may want to file a claim against Uber or Lyft to seek damages for your injuries.
Uber or Lyft Driver Accidents
Passengers are not the only ones who can be hurt in an Uber or Lyft accident. Drivers who sustain injuries may need compensation to pay for their medical bills and property losses as well.
If you are hit by an Uber or Lyft driver in your own vehicle, you may also be able to sue for compensation for injuries and damages to your car. The attorneys at KM law are not afraid to take on these popular transportation companies on behalf of their clients.
