UBER Insurance Gaps

Uber or Lyft vehicles may not have adequate insurance coverage, though the services tend to add their own insurance to the mix.

Uber and Lyft both require their drivers to have personal injury insurance, also required by Texas law.

However recent improvements by the City of San Antonio, may improve your chances of being compensated.

Houston City Council also passed an app-based transportation ordinance in August of 2014 to clarify the legal situation for that city.

In Dallas, regulations require a mechanic to inspect a peer-to-peer driver’s vehicle but the city is satisfied with Uber’s background checks of potential drivers.
