Hit By an Uber or Lyft in Laredo? Rideshare Injury Claims Attorneys

Everyday, thousands of Texas residents rely on rideshare apps, like Uber or Lyft, to get around. This is no different in Laredo, where citizens use the apps to navigate the city for work, a night out with friends, or any of the other reasons that these services have become so popular. However, these drivers are just as likely as any other to cause devastating accidents, if not more so.

If you were in an accident caused by an Uber/Lyft driver, the Texas Uber/Lyft accident attorneys at Carabin Shaw will help you win the compensation you are owed to cover your damages and injuries. However, rideshare companies and their insurance policies can often be complicated even at the best of times.

Uber/Lyft Insurance for Texas Drivers

When asking the questions “do Uber and Lyft cover accidents,” the answer is “well… it depends.” Both companies require their drivers to carry insurance, and provide insurance themselves, but navigating those policies without the help of Laredo rideshare injury attorneys can leave victims with a much smaller settlement than they are owed.

The circumstances that impact whether or not rideshare companies provide insurance for an accident are as follows:

1. The Rideshare App Is Off

If a driver for Uber/Lyft causes an accident when the app is off, as when they are driving for personal reasons, then only their own insurance applies. In cases like this, the Carabin Shaw rideshare collision lawyers in Laredo can help you file an injury claim against the at-fault driver, but Uber/Lyft will not be involved.

2. The Uber/Lyft App Is On and the Driver Is Waiting for a Ride

If a driver is waiting to be scheduled for a ride, and they cause an accident while waiting, then both Uber’s policy, and Lyft’s policy, provide third-party liability insurance to cover injuries or damages.

These funds include $50,000 per person, up to $100,000 per accident for injuries and $25,000 in property damage for accidents. Schedule your free case review with our experts for more information about how this policy might apply to your Laredo collision.

3. The Driver Is in the Middle of a Trip

Both Uber and Lyft have a more substance insurance policy for accidents where the rideshare driver is at-fault and they are actively driving a client. In those cases, there is a $1,000,000 policy for property damage and injuries to both riders and third-parties (such as drivers of the vehicle they hit).

Both funds for medical recovery and funds for your vehicle repair can be recovered with the help of Lyft and Uber accident lawyers in Laredo TX.

The Benefits of Laredo Personal Injury Attorneys

While Uber/Lyft insurance policies may seem substantial, it is important to note that they apply for anyone and everyone that may have been injured in the collision. In cases where multiple individuals sustained significant harm, those funds may be spread thin.

Working with a trusted lawyer means ensuring that you recover any and all funds you deserve in the aftermath of a rideshare collision.
