Uber & Rideshare Accident Attorneys in San Diego

Uber, Lyft and other rideshare accident injury accidents are different than a general car accident case. The insurance rules that cover drivers and passengers are unique to rideshare accidents. Our San Diego injury lawyers handle uber, lyft and other rideshare injury claims (such as taxi’s, airport buses, limos etc) and we navigate the laws and regulations so you can focus on recovery.

Perhaps you were a passenger in an Uber accident. If you were injured, there may be significant insurance coverage available to you as an injured passenger in an app vehicle. Generally, insurance coverages are defined as Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tire 3, depending upon which stage the driver app is engaged. Our rideshare accident lawyers will handle the insurance coverage issues and handle your case for you in all aspects. Once we accept your case, we work on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means we are not paid unless and until there is a recovery on your behalf.

If you were an Uber, Lyft or Rideshare driver, different rules apply, depending upon where you were in your route. For example the app may have been on and you were available, you may have been en route for a passenger or you may have had a passenger in the car when the accident occurred. Each scenario will trigger different coverages.

The Uber accident lawyers are Phillips & Pelly design a specific blueprint for each client. Perhaps the issue is outstanding medical bills, the need to get medical care or the loss of income, or all, or a multitude of other issues that occur with post accident injury. Our Uber accident lawyers will address each issue with you and provide you with all options.

Office Appointments Or We Come to You
Generally, the other insurer is looking to do one of two things:

1. Obtain information from you that could potentially decrease your final compensation.

2. Offer an immediate settlement that is lower than what you may be owed, in exchange for signing a release to your claim.

Don’t fall for these common insurance tactics. Once retained, we immediately notify the insurer of our Firm’s representation on your behalf. They are not permitted to call you once this is done. We will take over handling all of the details, negotiating, paperwork, forms and document filings on your behalf. You only need focus on healing and getting better.

Should I represent myself after an Uber or Lyft Accident?

That’s a fair question. The short answer, is that although some car accident claims are simple to handle, there are others requiring extensive litigation skills and a vast knowledge base that only experienced San Diego Uber accident lawyers like Phillips and Pelly are able to handle. Studies have consistently shown that personal injury claims represented by a skilled injury attorney receive much higher compensation than those claimants who choose to represent themselves.

Additionally, after a rideshare accident, you are dealing with an app company. Inexperience likely leads to a poor result.

The Consultation is free, and our no fee until we win guarantee means that our fees are based on a percentage of the amount we recover on your behalf.

Awards and memberships
You Use An App, Get a Ride, and Expect To Get To Your Destination Safely.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen, which is why you are likely reading this website. Experienced attorneys like Oliver Pelly and John Phillips can advise if you are eligible for compensation. 

You do have the right to expect to get to your destination safely when you call a rideshare. If that does not happen, the fortunately app companies do carry larger insurance limits.

Contact our office to discuss your Rideshare accident case and let’s talk about the issues and how we can help.

    You can go with the catchy jingles that you see on TV as I did, and become just another client. Or you can go with a firm that treats you like family, and sets the bar high by fighting for the maximum payment from your injuries. Very impressed and glad I made the switch! Thanks for everything I truly appreciate you.

    I worked with Ashley LaFontaine and she was absolutely wonderful in getting me the care I needed. When things with the doctors got hung up she helped get things moving. She was super communicative and kept me in the loop through every step of the process. Set expectations from beginning to end very well and exceed my expectations!

    I met Oliver Pelly by happenstance and after I grilled him a couple of times, I decided to hire his firm. After being my initial POC, I began working with Blake Woodhall. Both were standup guys, and Blake kept me in-the-loop the entire time. He was patient when explaining the process and going over details and understanding of my situation and concerns. Everything concluded better than I could have expected, and Blake acted as an excellent buffer to keep everything at bay. I would highly recommend Blake, Oliver and their firm for any auto accident cases.

    Going through my accident was a very difficult and emotional experience. The process of choosing the right law firm can be overwhelming. Choosing Phillips and Pelly was the best decision I could have made. They are extremely knowledgeable and I trusted Oliver’s expertise throughout the entire process. He was very responsive. Anytime I would have a question, including nights and weekends, Oliver would get back to me right away. I would recommend Phillips and Pelly for anyone going through a similar situation. They really are the best.

    I have enjoyed my experience with this law firm. Alecia Gordon represented me with my case and throughout this entire ordeal has been extremely supportive and understanding of my own lack of experience and knowledge of legal matters. She is not only kind and considerate but very intelligent and professional. The paralegal team also deserve kudos as they were always there to assist and assure me of progress and necessary document completions. All in all, I would highly recommend this firm for personal injury claims.

    Matt was very helpful in settling a case for my son that was a passenger in an automobile that crashed into a home. My son suffered cracked ribs, a concussion amongst other injuries. Matt was helpful explaining everything to us as this was a 1st dealing with anything like this for our family. It took time and patience as the other party was reluctant to settle. In the end my son had his ambulance, medical bills and a small amount of recovered monies all paid out. Great man, lawyer and law firm .Highly reccomended
