Our Rideshare Accident Legal Team In Long Beach

Founded by esteemed trial attorney Jonathan M. Kashani, Kash Legal is one of Southern California’s most respected personal injury law firms. Our team has secured millions in judgments and client settlements for injured Californians. We fight to hold at-fault parties and insurance companies financially accountable to injured victims of preventable accidents.

Rideshare accident cases constitute a growing part of our law practice, and our team has stayed up-to-date as the laws governing rideshare companies have continued to evolve. We understand the subtle facts and legal nuances that can decide whether a rideshare crash victim receives full compensation or none at all. And we have the skills and financial resources to find evidence and make arguments to tip the scales of justice in our client’s favor.

Your Rights to Compensation as a Rideshare Accident Victim

Victims of any motor vehicle accident—Long Beach-area rideshare accidents included—generally have a right under California law to receive compensation for the harm done to them. Their rights entitle them to claim those damages from anyone whose dangerous, wrongful conduct contributed to the cause of an accident, which could include, for example, a driver of one or more of the vehicles involved, or the owner of a commercial vehicle that crashed. And they can usually demand compensation for:

  • Medical and other expenses they incur because of the crash and their injuries
  • Past and future losses of income due to losing the ability to work
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering caused by their injuries and medical treatments
  • Daily inconvenience and loss of independence
  • Overall loss of quality of life

In some cases, they can also demand additional damages to serve as punishment for the at-fault party’s extreme or willfully harmful conduct. At Kash Legal, we work hard to identify all categories of injuries our clients may have the right to claim after a rideshare accident.

The Key Role of Rideshare Insurance in California 

Most aspects of a rideshare accident resemble any other traffic crash. But in one crucial respect, getting hurt in a collision involving a rideshare car differs significantly from those other car injury incidents.

Under California insurance requirements, all rideshare companies must provide their drivers with supplemental accident injury insurance (in addition to a driver’s own personal auto insurance) that covers harm done to rideshare passengers and others in an accident. That coverage offers significant financial protection to rideshare accident victims — far more protection, in fact, than those victims, might have if their accident did not involve a rideshare vehicle.

But the applicability of supplemental rideshare insurance coverage varies. It only kicks in when the rideshare driver is logged in to a rideshare app. And during that time, the amount of coverage available depends upon what the driver was doing at the moment of the accident.

Awaiting Booking

While the driver is logged in and waiting for a ride match, the insurance covers at least $50,000 for death and personal injury per person, $100,000 for death and personal injury per incident, and $30,000 for property damage, for an accident in which the rideshare driver bears some fault.

Pending Transport

While the driver is logged in and matched with a rider, from the moment of the match through the termination of the ride, the insurance covers $1,000,000 in accident damages, for an accident in which the rideshare driver bears some fault.

During Transport

While the driver is logged in and actually transporting a passenger, the insurance provides $1,000,000 in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage for damages suffered by a passenger in a crash caused by someone other than the rideshare driver.

The potential availability of this coverage makes it critically important to have a Long Beach Injury lawyer who understands rideshare law on your side to make sure you have every possible chance to maximize your payment. Kash Legal is that kind of law firm.
