Guidance Through Rideshare Auto Accidents in San Francisco, CA
Do you remember a time when public transit or a private taxi company was the only way to get around the Bay Area? Before smartphones, Uber and Lyft didn’t provide available cars on demand in a matter of minutes. Now, these rideshare options have transformed the taxi industry and have created a new form of injury and accident risk that requires new interpretations of the law.
The Ladva Law Firm in San Francisco CA, is at the forefront of this fast-growing and uncharted area of our legal system. We have experience litigating cases related to rideshare accidents in the City and County of San Francisco. Because Uber and Lyft have a powerful local prominence and major market shares, it can be difficult to go after the companies directly. In addition, rideshare drivers are usually independent contractors, which makes the formalities of who is liable difficult to discern.
Fortunately, our legal experts are here to help in a variety of cases, including:
- Accidents in which you are the passenger in an Uber or Lyft
- Accidents in which an Uber or Lyft hits you (as a non-riding pedestrian, cyclist, etc.)
- Accidents in which an Uber or Lyft hits your vehicle while you’re parked or driving
- Injuries and death as a result of ridesharing accident
This new industry is still highly unregulated and requires delicate and deliberate legal methods to effectively secure positive results. The Ladva Law Firm is always committed to working as hard as possible for our clients’ legal rights because we always want justice to be served. If you feel you’ve been the victim of an accident caused by a Lyft or Uber driver and have insurance liability concerns, we’re the rideshare accident attorneys with the background you can trust.
Why rideshare accidents are difficult to litigate
Uber and Lyft work differently than other companies because local rideshare drivers are not full-time, salaried employees who use company cars. Instead, they’re independent contractors with their own vehicles, which makes the process of sorting out and proving the liable parties for victim compensation a challenge.
Our firm has successfully demonstrated that accidents caused by driver negligence during an Uber, Lyft, or Sidecar ride shouldn’t be limited to the actions of the driver alone. We’ll hold the company accountable for pain and suffering, lost wages, and even job loss as a result of lost time or injury. Bad publicity and unhappy or injured clients are a serious risk for these younger startup companies, so we’ll help you use your public voice to hold all liable parties responsible for your recovery and care.
