What to Do If You're Injured in a San Antonio Uber or Lyft Accident
Since arriving in 2014, the Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) Uber and Lyft have solidified their presence in Texas, with a greater percentage of Texans opting to use their services each year. Sharing San Antonio roads and highways with an increased number of TNC drivers increases the possibility of car accidents involving civilians and these ridesharing services.
All car accidents are disorienting, but those in which multiple civilians are potentially injured and one party may or may not be on-the-job are especially complicated. This is why it’s best to secure quality legal representation as soon as possible following your accident.

The 2022 Crash Data and Statistics report from the Texas Department of Transportation shows that despite an overall decrease in traffic fatalities (16 fewer than in 2021), there were “no deathless days on Texas roadways in 2022.”
Urban centers like San Antonio account for many of these fatalities and many more injuries each year because they create situations where a high volume of cars are being moved around at high speeds in many directions. The kinds of injuries you can get from a car accident in San Antonio are numerous but some of the most common occur to the head and neck, which can keep a victim out of work and paying for months of ongoing medical care.

Though Texas TNC laws are more standardized than when Uber and Lyft first set up shop in the state, the insurance requirements in the Texas Occupations Code differ based on different parts of a TNC driver’s job. A victim is eligible for different amounts of compensation depending on whether the TNC driver is carrying a passenger, between rides, or en route to pick up a passenger.
