San Francisco Personal Injury
Rideshare providers such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar provide convenient and reasonably priced personal transportation services easily accessed through smartphone apps. But the rapid expansion of these services in Oakland and throughout the Bay Area raises important questions.
Are the operators of rideshare vehicles safe drivers? Do they have adequate liability insurance? Is the driver of the rideshare vehicle you are going to use today impaired by alcohol or drugs? As a passenger in a rideshare vehicle, will you be able to obtain compensation in the event of an accident? What if your car is struck by a rideshare vehicle?
These are not usually issues that arise in accident cases involving licensed taxis. But if you were injured by a rideshare vehicle driver, you may face significant obstacles when seeking compensation. You should speak with an experienced Oakland personal injury attorney concerning your case.
At Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., in Oakland, California, we represent victims of motor vehicle accidents of all types. Our lawyers are thorough in their approach and highly knowledgeable regarding auto insurance claims. When we represent you, we will carefully investigate the accident, identify all possible sources of insurance compensation and seek the best possible settlement or jury award for you.
In the vast majority of motor vehicle accident cases, insurance coverage is available, either from the accident victim’s personal injury protection policy, uninsured/underinsured motorist policy or the liability insurance of the other driver. Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., will seek full compensation for you.
The May 2014 issue of Wired magazine included a humorous article entitled “Is My Rideshare Driver Going To Murder Me?” While the chances of that are slim, the article highlights the potential risks of rideshare services. If you have been injured by the actions of a rideshare driver, you have rights. Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., will be your strong advocate, seeking full compensation and justice for you.
