Compensation for Injured Uber & Lyft Passengers in Austin

Seeking compensation after an Austin Uber/Lyft accident is stressful under any circumstances, but especially so when the rideshare driver is at fault for the accident. Rideshare companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying compensation to accident victims, but our Austin car accident attorneys at Carabin Shaw will fight for the settlement that you are entitled to.

Rideshare Services and Austin, TX

Rideshare services have exploded since entering the scene, becoming a business that thousands of Austin residents rely on every day. The Austin metro area was the fastest growing area in the U.S. for the 12th year in a row, according to Austin Population Growth and Demographic Trends.

As the population and area of the city expands, more and more citizens turn to ridesharing apps to make long-distance travel possible. Each of these factors means that the chances of being in a rideshare collision increase every day, and the consequences can be devastating when the victims are passengers and the at-fault parties are the rideshare drivers.

If you have been the victim of a rideshare collision, where the at-fault party was your Uber/Lyft driver, schedule your free case review with Carabin Shaw. Our trusted attorneys will help you to better understand the steps involved when pursuing compensation from rideshare companies.

Driver Status and Uber/Lyft Accident Insurance

Determining whether or not rideshare insurance can be applied to your case depends on the “status” of your driver at the time of the accident. However, in cases where you are the passenger of a vehicle, both Uber and Lyft have insurance policies that a Texas rideshare injury lawyer can help you recover.

According to Uber, its insurance includes the following:

  • $1,000,000 towards property damage and injuries to any riders or third parties, in case where the driver was at fault for the accident
  • Insurance that covers car repairs for the driver with a certain deductible.

Lyft’s insurance policy is very similar. This insurance policy kicks in when the driver is proven to be at fault for the accident, and experienced rideshare injury attorneys in Austin Tx can help you prove that liability. Our lawyers will investigate the circumstances of your accident, gather evidence for your claim, and guarantee that your case is as strong as it can be.

Recoverable Damages After an Uber/Lyft Accident

If you were injured in a rideshare collision, an attorney can help you recover funds from the rideshare company’s insurance policy. This can include:

Medical Costs

Time in an emergency room, surgery, and other medical costs can be recovered with the support of our team of expert attorneys.

Missed Wages

Few people can survive without a regular paycheck, and the aftermath of an accident can leave victims unable to work. A lawyer can help you recover lost or future earnings.

Pain and Suffering

When injuries are severe enough, they may cause emotional pain and suffering in addition to physical harm. You may be able to seek compensation for these noneconomic damages.
