Instead of owning and maintaining a car, many Long Beach residents choose to use ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft. For many residents the sheer cost compared between the two forms of transportation is unmatched and highly influences their decision to use ridesharing over purchasing a vehicle. One man even did the math which included his monthly vehicle lease, insurance premium, gas and parking fees. The total was nearly $800 a month which is a pretty high price tag. On the legal aspect of things this can get fairly complex especially when it comes to an accident. You need the expertise of a Long Beach Ridesharing accident attorney to fight big insurance and ridesharing companies.
