Laredo Rideshare Attorneys at Carabin Shaw - Uber and Lyft Accident Claims

Starting in larger cities in the late 2000s, rideshare usage has exploded into a global phenomenon. In Laredo, Texas, and across the world, riders increasingly turn to rideshare options to reduce their carbon footprint, lessen the wear and tear on their vehicle, travel safely after a night out, avoid parking costs, and save money and time.

Whatever the reason, an obvious outcoming of increased rideshare usage is a proportional increase in accidents involving drivers for these companies. If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle or were the rider during an accident, you deserve support in exploring the validity and strength of your potential claim. Our team of attorneys at Carabin Shaw has decades of experience and has been working with rideshare victims since the inception of these services.

The Nuances of Uber/Lyft Accident Claims

There are various factors that impact the extent of your claim after an accident involving a rideshare driver. Some of these include:

The Rideshare’s Insurance Policy

Both Uber and Lyft have similar insurance policies that depend upon the status of the driver’s app at the time of the accident.

  • Offline - If the driver’s app is off, their personal insurance applies.
  • Waiting for a Request - If the app is on but no ride has been accepted/assigned, these companies provide limited coverage.
  • En Route to Pick Up/With Passenger - If the driver has accepted a ride, whether they have picked up the rider or not, both apps provide their highest level of coverage.

No matter the status, turn to the Laredo rideshare attorneys at Carabin Shaw to better understand your particular situation.

Determining Liability

Who is liable, will directly affect your claims. It may be that the rideshare driver or another (third-party) driver is at fault. In some cases, the blame may fall on the rideshare company for not sufficiently vetting the driver, or partial blame could fall on you. No matter the specifics, it is important to remember three things:

  1. Determining liability is key to your claim.
  2. Texas is a proportional liability state, meaning that as long as you are less than 51% liable for the accident, you can make a claim against those who share responsibility.
  3. Assessing liability is remarkably difficult and, therefore, should be done with the aid of an experienced Uber accident attorney in Laredo.
