Someone injured by or in a Lyft or Uber can often obtain a lawsuit settlement or judgment of $1 million or more. In this video, our personal injury lawyers explain.
Uber and Lyft are California’s two most prominent ride-sharing companies. Technically known as “Transportation Network Companies” or “TNCs,” ride sharing companies in California are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and the California Public Utilities Code. Among other things the code:
Sets forth minimum California auto insurance requirements for ride-sharing drivers (with limits of at least $1,000,000 while passengers are in the vehicle), and
Requires ride-sharing services to conduct background checks of drivers.1
People who are victims of accidents or crimes by Lyft or Uber drivers have a number of potential remedies, including:
Uber and Lyft accident lawsuits.
Suing for an assault or battery by an Uber or Lyft driver or passenger, and
Lawsuits for sexual assaults by Uber or Lyft drivers.
Additionally, drivers who are injured while driving for a TNC or believe their working conditions were violated can file a California wage and hour lawsuit against Uber or Lyft.
