Michael and his team were so great during this entire process. They helped me to get a pretty significant settlement from my case and they were never delayed in any of the processes. I am confident that had I not "fired" the first attorney that I started to work with and called HHJ trail attorneys, I would not have gotten the results that I got with HHJ. You can't go wrong with working with these guys to settle your case.

Michael and the HHJ staff were extremely helpful from the start of my case less than a year ago. From the time I had my accident, to having doctor appointments set up to the final conclusion, it couldn’t have been a smoother process from beginning to end. Michael is very detailed and organized and always has your best interest at heart. He is very responsive and is always on top of it. I didn’t have to do much other than show up to my doctor appts and respond with info that was needed. I would without a beat use Michael and his team again if needed. HHJ is the best in Southern California!

Mr. Adam Hepburn and his firm, HHJ Trial Attorneys, took on our legal case. Mr. Adam Hepburn came recommended, luckily. We can't thank Mr. Adam Hepburn and his firm for their stellar work throughout our entire legal case. If I had any questions or concerns, Mr. Adam Hepburn would quickly address my concerns either via email, cell phone or even on text. Mr. Adam Hepburn was very truthful, thoughtful when explaining the facts of my case, and extremely professional. If you're on the fence with hiring Adam Hepburn and his firm, don't be, he's the best in the field. Adam won my case! Must hire him and his firm if you need his type of services.

What Damages Can I Seek Compensation for in a Lyft Accident Case?

If you’ve been injured in a Lyft accident case, you may be eligible to collect the following damages:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes doctor visits, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, or any other medical costs that came about due to the accident.
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: A Lyft accident might have caused you to miss work, or you might have had your earning capacity impaired in some way. In that case, you can collect compensation for the income you have lost up until this point and will lose in the future.
  • Pain and Suffering: These are the non-economic damages, including, but not limited to, physical pain, emotional pain, and the overall effect this Lyft accident has had and will have on you for the rest of your life.
  • Loss of Consortium: The Lyft accident may have affected you and your spouse or partner. Depending, you may be eligible to receive compensation for the loss of companionship, support, and intimacy you had with your spouse or partner.
  • Wrongful Death: When a Lyft accident causes the death of a loved one, his or her family members are eligible to file a wrongful death claim. You can seek compensation for any and all related costs to the death itself, including funeral costs and the loss of the deceased’s income.

Understanding the extent of these damages is crucial in building a comprehensive case for compensation. 

What Should You Do After a Lyft Accident in Los Angeles?

Taking the proper steps immediately following a rideshare accident is important for your health and the success of any potential legal claims you may have. 

These steps include:

  • Seeking Medical Attention: Your health should be your number one concern. Seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you think your injuries are minor. Not only does this step ensure your health and well-being, but it is also important documentation for your case.
  • Reporting the Accident: Report your Lyft accident to the police and to Lyft as soon as possible. Obtain a copy of the police report, and gather information at the scene, such as contact information for the Lyft driver and for any witnesses.
  • Documenting the Scene: Take photos of the scene of your accident, including damage to vehicles, road conditions, and any relevant signage. This visual evidence can be crucial to establishing liability.

Remember, what you do immediately following a Lyft accident can significantly impact any potential legal claims you may have. Keep in mind that as a passenger, you’re covered by Lyft’s insurance policy. Nonetheless, your accident may involve many parties that complicate pursuing action. Still, HHJ Trial Attorneys can help you get a claim filed against the at-fault party or parties.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lyft Accident Claim in Los Angeles?

Two years from the date of the accident. All personal injury cases, including Lyft accidents, have time limits for claims filing. These time limits are legally known as the “statute of limitations,” and adhering to these timeframes is crucial in preserving your right to seek and fight for compensation.

Here’s an in-depth look at this important aspect of Lyft accident claims:

  • Understanding the Statute of Limitations: Personal injury claims stemming from incidents such as Lyft accidents are constrained by a statute of limitations that universally spans a two-year period post-incident. This means that legal action must commence within two years subsequent to the accident’s occurrence through filing in civil court.
  • Reasons for the Time Limit: Filing sooner rather than later guarantees access to robust evidence, including health documentation, eye-witness accounts, and official collision records. Moreover, these time constraints promote an orderly judicial process by prompting claimants to seek redress while their supporting evidence remains undiminished by time.
  • Exceptions and Special Circumstances: Specific situations might activate the commencement of this two-year duration from when an individual became aware or should have recognized their injuries; This principle is commonly referred to as the “discovery rule,” pertinent in scenarios where harm doesn’t surface immediately.

Failing to file within the specified timeframe may lead to forfeiture of your entitlement to pursue damages: Courts often reject claims presented after the statute of limitations has elapsed.
