Our Glen Larson Law Uber and Lyft accident attorneys in Austin understand the confusion that comes with being injured in a collision with a rideshare driver. The legal issues negotiating with the rideshare insurance company and other potentially liable parties are complex in recovering for your injuries and financial compensation.
Glen Larson Law can help.
If you have been injured in a crash with an Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare vehicle in Austin, Texas, the basis of your personal injury case and the insurance coverage that will compensate you for your injuries and damages will lie in the rideshare driver’s status when the collision occurred.
Our skilled rideshare attorneys in Texas will help you determine if the driver was off the clock, which means he or she was not logged on to the driver app, on the clock, but not engaged in a fare, or on the clock and actively pursuing, transporting, or dropping off a rider.
Once the driver’s status is confirmed, we will begin building your case to pursue dedicated, driven results.
What Happens If I Was Injured in a Crash with a Texas Uber Driver Who Was Not on the Clock?
If you were injured in a collision with an Uber driver who was not on the clock meaning, not logged onto his or her driver app at the time of the crash you were simply in a collision with another driver. Their employment as an Uber or Lyft driver will have no bearing on your case.
In Texas, all drivers are required to carry minimum liability insurance on their vehicles that include $30,000 for injuries per person, up to a total of $60,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage. We will pursue the driver’s personal insurance coverage for your financial recovery.
What Happens If I Was Injured in a Crash with a Texas Uber Driver Who Was on the Clock?
There are two accident scenarios for an on-the-clock Uber or Lyft driver that will affect the insurance coverage options we may pursue your full financial recovery.
The first is, if the driver was on the clock actively logged onto the app but does not have a fare, Uber’s contingency insurance takes effect.
The second scenario is if the driver was on the clock and has a fare onboard, the rideshare company’s insurance policy fully covers the driver for both liability and property damage coverage.
You need to talk with an experienced rideshare lawyer to determine liability and maximum recovery.
