Palm Springs Uber & Lyft Accident Attorney

Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. - Advocating for Your Interests

We live in a time where computer technology touches almost every facet of society and life. With the advent of ride-sharing apps, companies like Uber and Lyft have revolutionized the transportation industry, shaking up the market for taxi and limousine services. However, where traditional transportation service businesses are subject to stricter regulations for licensing and safety duties, companies like Uber and Lyft have a unique legal status as an intermediary that coordinates passengers with drivers who use their personal vehicles to work as independent contractors. As a result, legal issues regarding accidents involving Uber and Lyft drivers can be difficult to navigate.

If you’ve been injured in an accident involving a driver working with a transportation service company like Uber and Lyft, call the offices of Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. to consult with one of our experienced Uber & Lyft accident attorneys in Palm Springs. We have over 40 years of litigation experience in matters such as car accidents, including those involving Uber or Lyft drivers. Our legal team is available to you – even on evenings and weekends.

To learn more about how Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. can help you, call us at (888) 480-3883 or contact us online today.

Qualified Legal Representation Against Transportation Network Companies

Under California law, companies such as Uber and Lyft are legally classified as “transportation network companies” or TNCs. This is a relatively new classification specifically created for the purpose of regulating this industry. Regulations for TNCs govern the provision of insurance for drivers, accommodations for people with disabilities, and prohibition of intoxicating substances for drivers.

We have experience with a variety of issues involving TNCs, including:

  • Third-party Liability Insurance Claims
  • Insurance Coverage for Passengers
  • Distracted Driving Claims
  • Pedestrian Injuries
  • Multi-party Litigation

Uber and Lyft accidents can be relatively complicated when compared to other car accident claims. One accident can involve several parties, who may or may not have been injured. Such parties include drivers (whether working with a TNC or not), passengers, TNCs, TNC insurance providers, and private insurance providers for individual parties.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

    Arash B.

  • I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

    Jackob S.

  • Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

    Lori G.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with the insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had the entire staff at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”
