Ride Share Accidents

Uber / Lyft Accidents

Injured in a Uber or Lyft in Texas?

Have you sustained a serious injury after being involved in an accident while in an Uber or Lyft? At some point in your life, you’ve most likely taken an Uber or Lyft to the airport, after a night out, or just simply out of convenience. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, but it can feel scary when it happens in a situation you didn’t plan for, like being in an Uber or Lyft.

What You Need to Know When in an Uber/Lyft Accident in Texas

Uber and Lyft hire their rideshare drivers as independent contractors (instead of employees), which means the drivers own and insure their own personal vehicles. In the State of Texas our law requires Uber, Lyft and any other rideshare drivers to carry liability insurance policies. A key point to know is that Uber and Lyft also provide liability insurance to its drivers, including uninsured/underinsured coverage (UM). How does that benefit you? Well, this means that if you are involved in a Uber or Lyft accident as a passenger, and the other vehicle/driver involved is uninsured or underinsured, then you would still be eligible for compensation from Uber or Lyft’s UM insurance. When you’re involving a billion dollar company’s like Uber and Lyft things are bound to get complicated and intimidating. It’s so crucial to your personal injury claim to have a skillful and experienced rideshare accident attorney here at Mora Law.
