Types of ridesharing car accidents

Houston car accidents involving ridesharing companies (including Uber, Lyft, Relay, Carma, Sidecar, BlaBlaCar, etc.) present a wide range of legal challenges. That’s why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side if you were hurt in a crash caused by a ridesharing driver. Our Houston law firm can help with a wide range of ridesharing accidents, including:

Ridesharing accidents caused by ridesharing drivers:

  • With a passenger
  • Without a passenger
  • With the ridesharing app on
  • With the ridesharing app off
  • Ridesharing accident in which you’re the passenger in the vehicle
  • Car accidents in which the ridesharing driver crashed into your vehicle
  • Ridesharing driver struck you while you were walking or cycling in Houston

Don’t underestimate the complexity of your accident. Different rules apply to ridesharing accidents depending on whether you were a passenger, another driver, a pedestrian or a cyclist. Even seemingly minor issues, like whether the Uber or Lyft driver’s app was off or on, can make a big difference from a legal standpoint.

That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced Houston ridesharing accident lawyer familiar with Texas’ laws and who understands how the legal system works here. That’s why we want to meet with you.

You have rights. Our Houston ridesharing accident lawyers can fight for them.

Like most car accidents, there are many obstacles you can encounter when dealing with a collision caused by a ridesharing driver. The driver might deny doing anything wrong. They might even try to blame you.

Then there’s the issue of insurance. Ridesharing drivers must obtain additional insurance, since regular car insurance does not cover crashes caused by them while they’re working. As a result, Uber, Lyft and other ridesharing services drivers must obtain supplemental car insurance. Depending on how much coverage the driver has, their insurance might not cover all your accident-related expenses.

Regardless of how much insurance the other driver has, insurance companies notoriously do everything they can to reduce or deny accident claims. That’s because there’s often thousands or even millions of dollars at stake. They don’t intimidate us. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies and if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to file a ridesharing accident lawsuit on your behalf.
