Top Rideshare Accident Attorneys in San DIego

California is the birthplace of ridesharing apps, with both Uber and Lyft being based in the state. The popularity of ridesharing has only increased in the years, and with greater demand, more ridesharing vehicles are on the road. Ridesharing companies provide valuable services and offer great alternatives to driving alone or having to work for a taxi company to make your living.

In a state as populated as California, with as many vehicles on the road as there are, it is no surprise car accidents involving a rideshare driver are also on the rise. Vehicle accidents involving a rideshare company driver are not treated like car accidents between private individuals. Insurance policies have added another level of complexity, and if you are a victim in one of these collisions, you may be overwhelmed with medical bills and your insurance claims.

If you or a loved one are involved in an auto accident involving a ridesharing company, you need to know the legal options available. This is where the expert personal injury lawyers at Mova Law Group can help. These ridesharing accident attorneys can let you know what you could expect to gain from a personal injury claim and will fight for fair compensation for you.

Whether you are a passenger or another driver in a ridesharing company vehicle collision, a pedestrian hit by a ridesharing independent contractor, a driver for Lyft, Uber, or the like, or someone who experienced property damage through no fault of your own in a car crash, the skilled personal injury attorneys will know how best to help.

In any motor vehicle accident, you must establish who is at fault for the damages and the liability coverage you will receive for your severe injuries or property damage. In a typical car accident, however, one or more drivers are not independent contractors who may or may not have driver’s personal insurance at the time.

Having liability insurance and claiming liability for your personal injuries are two different things. Lyft/Uber’s insurance does provide insurance coverage for accidents occurring in Uber vehicles while the driver is on the clock. The rideshare company’s insurance also includes other uninsured drivers who may be at fault in an Uber or Lyft collision.

As an accident victim, you cannot expect to know all of the ins and outs of insurance claims. You owe it to yourself and your recovery to let an experienced car accident lawyer who understands the rideshare company’s insurance take over your case. The Uber accident attorneys at Mova Law Group are ready to fight for you to get the coverage you need today. We will not settle until you do!


Does insurance cover these personal vehicles? Uber and Lyft accidents are very different insurance claims than taxicab accident claims. A taxi driver uses a company vehicle, whereas a rideshare services driver usually provides their own car to do their work. While rideshare apps do have their insurance policies that cover the drivers, this coverage only applies:

  • While transporting a passenger
  • While en route for a ride request
  • While logged into the rideshare app, waiting for a passenger

Otherwise, the company recommends that their Uber drivers also have their own personal insurance policy, including private auto insurance that goes above and beyond what they offer.

As an accident victim, how can you be expected to know when a driver is on the clock? You have no idea, and personal injury claims can come down to the word of the rideshare app against yours. After a free case evaluation, a rideshare accident attorney from the law firm of Mova Law Group will be able to recommend how best to proceed with a claim.

Besides having insurance coverage on a company-provided vehicle, taxi drivers are also subjected to stricter work conditions, such as background checks and specialized driver’s licenses. In California, Uber and Lyft drivers are now undergoing background checks for rideshare passenger safety. Still, their driver training can consist of short videos and is not regulated to the extent of the training for taxicab drivers. The rideshare companies will try to avoid claiming any responsibility for the at-fault driver so that they can pay you, the victim, less than you deserve.



Suppose you are involved in an accident as a passenger or driver of a rideshare vehicle. In that case, the Uber accident lawyers at Mova Law Group can help you get the financial compensation you deserve for your personal injury claim. A personal injury lawyer should be one of the first calls you make following your uber accident.

 Our expert Lyft accident attorneys will go over your legal options with you to pursue claims against the rideshare company: from covering serious injuries you received in the accident to coverage for property damage you, as a driver, experienced while waiting for a ride.

 Exploring your options through a free consultation will give you a better idea of how to proceed with your claim.


Suppose you are a driver for a rideshare company, and you are in an accident where you sustained bodily injuries or damage to your vehicle used for work. In that case, the rideshare accident attorneys at Mova Law Group can help.

You may have questions about your insurance coverage. You may have questions about what sort of claims you can make as a motorist at a rideshare company and whether your collision counts towards being covered by your rideshare company. You may not be sure of your rights as an independent contractor and want to avoid causing any issues with the company.
