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

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • 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!”
