Maximum Recovery for Our Clients
Our firm aggressively defends our clients’ rights recovering the maximum compensation for their injuries and ensuring that their interests are protected.

Ride share accident Lawyer

The liability process becomes complicated if you are involved in a ride share accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver. These companies are application-based, vehicle-for-hire services, which means the drivers operate their own vehicles. This means that each Uber or Lyft driver is covered by their own auto insurance policy. These drivers are not trained in the same way as taxi or bus drivers. Additionally, the vehicles they are driving are not inspected in the same manner that taxis or buses are, and the insurance coverages are utterly different. Lyft and Uber have insurance available for their drivers that differ depending on whether they have a secured passenger or not.

Compensation For an Uber / Lyft / Rideshare Accident

This puts the financial weight that comes with being involved in an accident on the shoulders of the drivers. While Uber drivers are required to get an auto insurance policy, many of them do not have policies that cover commercial accidents. This gives their insurance providers an opportunity to deny claims from the injured passengers.

This also creates a gap in insurance coverage that can lead to difficulties. However, with the correct legal guidance, you should be able to receive financial compensation for the injuries you suffered while riding in rideshare vehicle. Whether you are in an Uber, Lyft, bus, taxi, or any other commercial vehicle, you’ll need help to secure fair compensation for: pain and suffering; medical and doctors’ bills; lost wages; and other related damages.

Typical Uber/Lyft Insurance Policy

Once the driver accepts or is assigned to a passenger:

  • Up to $1 million for total liability coverage
  • Up to $1 million for accidents caused by an uninsured and/or underinsured motorist
  • Property damage for the repair cost of the vehicle or actual cash value, with a $1,000 deductible (normally $2,500 for Lyft)

Once the driver is in “on duty” mode, but before the driver is assigned to or accepts a passenger:

  • Up to $50,000 for bodily injuries, per person, and $100,000 for bodily injuries per accident
  • Up to $25,000 for property damage

Please note that insurance limits may only be the starting point depending on the severity of the injuries.

Our firm represents all types of car accident cases, including:

Head-on Collision

A head on collision (also called a frontal collision) occurs when two vehicles traveling  the opposite direction collide into each other. If there is impact damage to the front of both vehicles, then the chances are there was a head on collision. They usually happen when one driver crosses the center of the road and drives into oncoming traffic. They also happen when a driver is simply driving the wrong way in traffic.

Common Injuries That Occur in Head-on Collision

Rear End Collision

A rear end automobile accident, also called a rear end crash, happens when a vehicle in back (the rear vehicle) hits the back of the vehicle in front of it (the front vehicle). It does not matter if either vehicle involved is a car, truck or motorcycle. If one runs into the back of the other, it is considered a rear end auto accident. It also does not matter how many cars, trucks, or motorcycles are involved. In fact, many times rear end crashes involve more than just two vehicles. This type of multi car crash is more common on highways and freeways.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) nearly half of all traffic accidents involve a rear end accident. Given the sheer number of times a rear end car accident occurs, it is important to know what it is, how fault is determined, who is at fault when it happens, and how to avoid it.

T-bone Collision

A t-bone accident happens when the front of one vehicle crashes into the side of another vehicle. It’s also called a side impact accident or broadside accident because of the location of the impact. Most of the time a t-boneis an intersection accident. But they can also happen any time a car crosses a roadway or street. The key is that the cars are going perpendicular to each other.

Common Injuries That Occur in Collision

Sideswipe Collision

A sideswipe accident occurs when two cars are going the same direction and the side of one car hits the side of the other car. Most of the time this happens because one car leaves its lane of travel and sideswipes the other car. This is commonly referred to as an unsafe lane change.The car that leaves its lane of travel is usually the one that is at fault for causing the sideswipe accident. The two most common types of sideswipe accidents occur when changing lanes and when merging. This article will address who is at fault inwhen changing lanes. It will also address who is at fault when merging.

Hit and Run Accident

In most cases, it is very easy to determine who is at fault for hitting a parked car. The general rule is that the driver that hits the parked car is at fault for hitting a parked car. The reason the driver is usually at fault is because the car was parked and not moving. So, the parked car cannot move out of the way to avoid the accident. The driver that hits a parked car, on the other hand, usually does have the ability to move out of the way. The driver has a duty to pay attention to the road ahead and see what can be seen. Therefore, the driver usually has the opportunity to see the parked car and avoid it.
Leave a Note for the Owner
If you have looked around and there is no owner in sight don’t just leave. leave a note. The note should contain the following information:Name
Address Contact, phone number, explanation of the accident, your insurance information.
Anything you put in the note is evidence that can be used against you. So, make sure the note is short and to the point. Put the note in a conspicuous place. Usually the best place in under a windshield wiper.

Multi-car Accident

It's not as simple as looking for the car with the most damage to determine who is at fault in a multi car accident.  Ultimately, fault must be determined on a case by case basis.  But there are some general principles that will help.  To start with you have to look at the individual drivers’ actions and the type of multi car accident that occurs.There are many different types of multi car accidents.  The most common types of multi car accidents involve rear end accidents, head on collisions, Intersection crashes, and lane changes.  You will learn about all of them in this article.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a personal injury attorney services cost?

MANN Law Group accepts personal injury cases on a contingency basis, which means that you don’t pay unless your claim is successfully resolved. At that point, you would pay MANN Law Group a percentage of your total award or settlement. If you don’t win, you don’t pay!

Why do you I need a lawyer after a car accident?

For every personal injury accident (including car accidents) a claim must usually be filed. Filing claims can be a very tedious process and are often hard to navigate. MANN Law Group is here to help you with this process. Our team of experts has over 30 years of experience navigating this process successfully. While we deal with the claims process, you can focus on recovering from your injuries due to your accident. Our lawyers and legal staff fight on your behalf to obtain the maximum compensation that you deserve.

Learn more about the process of filing a claim and how our attorney can help you today.

It is necessary to hire a personal injury lawyer?

The personal injury claim process is a minefield for the inexperienced. Insurance companies, at least in theory, are supposed to oversee the process in an equitable manner, but they consistently put their interests before those of accident victims. Hiring Avrek Law Firm ensures that your needs come first.

Can I still get a consultation if I already have an attorney?

Yes! You are always entitled to a free, no-obligation consultation or second opinion on your case. If you are not happy with the attorney that represents you, or feel that the offer received by your attorney from the insurance company is not enough, call us so we can properly evaluate your claim.

How long do I have to get an attorney after my accident?

Each type of case has a statute of limitations, which means you only have a certain amount of time to file a claim. In California, the statute of limitations is only 2 years for auto accident claims. But don’t wait to call! Other statutes can be much shorter, and you may not realize that you have a different type of claim that applies to your accident!
