Walnut Creek Rideshare Accident Attorneys
Legal Counsel for Uber and Lyft Accident Victims
When you use a rideshare service, you are entrusting your personal safety to a driver you have never met. As a passenger, you are essentially putting your life into another person’s hands and hoping that they make the right choices while behind the wheel of a car. Most of the time, passengers are taken from point A to point B in a timely and uneventful manner, but this is not always the case. Countless rideshare customers have been involved in traffic collisions and don’t know what to do next.

Call our office today at (925) 254-1234 to schedule a free consultation.
Why Rideshare Accidents Are Complex
Rideshare accident claims differ from those of standard traffic collisions. This is due to the fact that three different insurance companies may be involved instead of the usual two. Attempting to navigate these complex waters on your own can be frustrating, take up a large chunk of your time, and lead to you not receiving the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies may present you with low settlement offers that hardly cover your medical costs and make up for the pain and suffering you have undergone, or they may deny liability altogether.
In rideshare claims, you may be dealing with:
- Uber or Lyft’s insurance representatives.
- The rideshare driver’s private insurance carrier.
- The other driver’s private insurance.
With any dispute in fault, your claim may be more difficult to resolve and will call for the services of a personal injury lawyer familiar with traffic accident litigation. At Balamuth Law, we know how to stand up to insurance companies in order to get you the compensation you deserve, and we will make sure that the negligent parties who caused you harm are held responsible.
