Rideshare Accident Attorneys in Midland, Texas

When our clients are hurt in collisions with one of the estimated 2.5 million rideshare drivers in the country who are operating in Texas, their first challenge is determining who is liable for the crash. Next, they must establish whether the negligent driver, the rideshare company, or a combination of each is responsible for their medical bills, lost wages, and other damages created by the crash.

Our skilled Midland personal injury attorneys have the legal resources required to investigate and determine which insurance policies may be responsible for your financial and physical recovery

What are the Most Common Causes of Uber, Lyft, and Other Rideshare Accidents in Midland?

Rideshare drivers including those that work for Uber, Lyft, another company, or several at once depending on which platform is more active during their working hours operate from an app that requires them to consistently look down or over at their phones to identify the pick-up or drop off location of their passenger on the map.

This process significantly increases driver distraction, which is one of many negligent causes of rideshare traffic collisions throughout the Midland area.

Additional causes of Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare accidents in Midland include:

  • Speeding
  • Fatigue driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • 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.

What Type of Financial Compensation Can I Pursue After a Rideshare Accident with Injuries?

Like all accidents with injuries that were caused by negligence, the at-fault driver and their insurance company may be pursued for the financial recovery that will provide our clients with the justice they deserve.

When the at-fault driver is an Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare driver, their employer’s insurance coverage may also be pursued for the financial compensation that reflects our client’s unique injury needs.

That may include:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Loss of past wages
  • Loss of future wages
  • Loss of wage-earning capacity
  • Reduced future earning capacity

Is the Driver or the Rideshare Company Responsible for My Financial Recovery?

Our Glen Larson Law Uber, Lyft, and rideshare accident attorneys use our investigative resources to determine the details of each crash victim’s case, so we can hold the liable party or parties responsible.

That means we must determine the driver’s status at the time of the accident before we can pursue more than one party for our client’s financial recovery needs.

The Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare driver is solely responsible for the collision if he or she was at fault for the crash and was not logged onto the rideshare app, but was simply driving their car, truck, or SUV for personal reasons — even if their vehicle has Uber or Lyft stickers in the window — which means their personal vehicle insurance coverage would be the target of a personal injury liability claim.

The rideshare company may hold limited liability when a crash occurs and their rideshare driver was operating their vehicle on behalf of the rideshare company, logged onto the app, but had not yet accepted a rider.

When a rideshare driver was logged into the app, had accepted, or was transporting a passenger at the time of the collision, 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.
