The ride-sharing industry continues to grow providing Southern California residents with an alternative to traditional taxi services. Companies such as Uber and Lyft take advantage of Smartphone technology to streamline access to transit using an app that matches passengers to drivers. With the streamlined business model in this emerging industry, there is tremendous pressure on drivers to complete fares quickly and make more money. Distractions from cell phones, GPS devices and the pressures of the job often lead to serious accidents.
California lawmakers have scrambled to create a patchwork of regulations that apply to this nontraditional form of taxicab or livery service. The relationship between the ride-share company and its drivers creates complexity in obtaining maximum compensation for injuries suffered in an accident.
