With its proximity to the coast and its many cultural and historical sites, the city of Oxnard, California, is a beautiful place to live. As more people make Oxnard their home, the city grows busier and more exciting. A part of this expansion includes the use of ridesharing services such as Lyft and Uber. These services make transportation much easier for Oxnard’s more than 208,000 residents each day.
As with any service, ridesharing is not exempt from risk. Unfortunately, many are seriously injured in Oxnard rideshare accidents every year. If you or someone you love has been injured in a rideshare accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for any damages you sustained. The Oxnard personal injury attorneys of OnderLaw are prepared to help you as you seek the reimbursement to which you’re entitled.
