While most of the estimated 2.5 million rideshare drivers in the U.S. often toggle between both Uber and Lyft apps to ensure they are maximizing their time and revenue behind the wheel, the reality is, the increase of rideshare drivers has led to a 3% increase in overall car accident fatalities nationwide in just over ten years.
If you have been involved in a collision with a rideshare driver in Texas and have suffered injuries or the tragic loss of a loved one, our skilled El Paso personal injury attorneys can help you understand what type of insurance coverage may apply to your financial recovery.

Texas Rideshare Accidents are Frequently Caused by Negligence
Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies like Blackland, Talixo, and Carmel that operate in El Paso require licensed drivers to transport customers from pick up to drop off locations to ensure their organizations produce revenue.
Unfortunately, their app-based screening processes do not allow these corporate entities to ensure drivers are operating their vehicles within our Texas traffic laws, or without posing a hazard to passengers or other drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists on our roadways.
Like most car wrecks, the causes of crashes involving rideshare drivers are typically dominated by negligence, including those who are:
- Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
- Making improper turns, unsafe lane changes, or driving the wrong way
When negligence is a factor, our injured clients have a legal right to pursue the individual rideshare driver – and potentially the company they were working for at the time – who caused the crash for financial compensation to cover their damages.
If you have been injured as a passenger, or after being hit in a collision by a negligent rideshare driver, our skilled personal injury attorneys in El Paso can help you determine who was at fault, and which insurance coverage is available to pursue the best financial recovery options for your unique injury needs.

Is the Driver or the Rideshare Company Responsible for My Financial Recovery?
Determining who is at fault for any vehicle collision is a complex undertaking, as each driver is going to place the blame anywhere but on themselves. Our Glen Larson Law Injury Attorneys personal injury attorneys use our investigative resources to determine the details of the crash, so we can hold the liable party or parties responsible.
If you are hurt in a crash with a driver who has rideshare indicators on their vehicle, that does not necessarily mean the driver was working for the entity when the collision occurred.
Typically, three scenarios will help determine which insurance policies can be pursued for our client’s rideshare accident recovery, including:
- When a driver is behind the wheel of his or her vehicle – even if it is outfitted with a rideshare sticker or other indicators – and is not logged onto the rideshare app, he or she is simply driving their car, truck, or SUV for personal reasons, which means their personal vehicle insurance coverage would be the target of a personal injury liability claim.
- When rideshare drivers are operating their vehicles on behalf of the rideshare company, and are logged into the app, but have not yet accepted a rider, the rideshare’s limited liability insurance coverage may be pursued for the injured party’s damages.
- The rideshare company’s umbrella insurance policy may be responsible for the injuries sustained during a collision, when we can prove that the rideshare driver was at fault, and he or she was logged into the app, and accepted, or is transporting a passenger,
