Lyft Accident Attorney Chula Vista

When someone suggests you use a ridesharing service, you no longer look at them like they’re crazy. Maybe a few years ago you would have questioned getting into a stranger’s personal vehicle, but we’re used to the idea now. Services like Lyft offer us wonderful convenience when we need to get somewhere, whether we need a designated driver or just a quick trip to the bank and back.

But sometimes accidents happen. Do you know what to do if your Lyft driver gets into an accident?

If this happens to you, you may need a Chula Vista Lyft accident attorney. When you contact the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt, you are ensuring expert help from an attorney experienced in this area of law.

California Ridesharing

California is the birthplace of ridesharing and nobody in Chula Vista thinks twice when they see a vehicle with a Lyft sticker in the window (at least it’s not the giant pink mustache anymore). Whether you use a Lyft regularly or only occasionally, we know you have certain expectations when you open your phone and press the button to call a Lyft ride. You expect your driver to be professional and the vehicle to be clean. Most of all, you expect your driver to be safe on the roadway.

But there have been numerous reports of Lyft drivers being impaired by drugs or alcohol as well as many being distracted behind the wheel. This is not fair to their passengers or the people on the roadway around them.

If you get into an accident when using a Lyft vehicle, do you know your next steps?

Many people think the ridesharing industry has grown too fast and is not regulated properly. It is true, you are essentially putting your faith in a regular driver, not one who has been trained to carry passengers. They make mistakes and can be careless. State and local authorities have little to no control over Lyft drivers.

This can lead to unsafe conditions for Lyft passengers, other vehicles on the road, as well as pedestrians near the roadway.

What To Do

If you’ve been in a Lyft vehicle accident, whether as the passenger or nearby third party, you will have many questions. At the Law Offices of Edward J. Babbitt, you will find the answers you need. From the police reports to insurance claims, we will sit down with you and go over all of your options. We want you to be aware that Lyft covers each independent driver with a $1 million liability policy. If you are due any of that because of injuries or damages, we want you to be compensated fairly.

You may need a Lyft accident attorney in Chula Vista. Don’t speak to insurance companies until you have all the details to make an informed decision.
