Why You Need an Austin Uber Accident Attorney

You are likely familiar with services such as Uber or Lyft as the rideshare industry continues to grow. Not only do Uber and Lyft provide a quick, affordable and easy way of transportation for those without a car, they also offer flexible hours and the opportunity to make extra cash by working as a driver. Busy cities, such as Austin, Texas, see rideshare services flourishing, but the safety and legality that accompany these types of services are often overlooked.

Uber and Lyft drivers are just as likely to be involved in an accident that could result in injury as any other vehicle on the road. These accidents and injuries are governed by laws that are still being written and rewritten as Uber and Lyft become more popular. If you were involved or injured in an Uber or Lyft accident in Austin, understanding why you need an Austin Uber accident attorney is crucial. Being cognizant of how an experienced attorney can assist you can be the key to ensuring you receive the rightful compensation you are entitled to for the injuries you have sustained.

Why You Need an Austin Uber Accident Attorney

To provide expert legal consultation: An accident in an Uber or other rideshare vehicle has many factors that differ from an accident in a regular passenger car. Because drivers are insured by Uber under certain circumstances and because passengers can be involved in accidents, some lines get blurred, and understanding who is liable and what is covered can become confusing. Some situations that can become unclear and can be best explained by experienced Austin Uber liability lawyers include but are not limited to:

  • How much insurance coverage do I have as a rideshare driver?
  • What happens if I am injured as a passenger in a rideshare vehicle?
  • Can I sue a rideshare company if I have sustained injuries in their vehicle?
  • Who is liable in rideshare accidents?
  • What damages can I gain if I am injured in a rideshare service accident?

Because laws are contingent on the situation at hand, having an experienced lawyer from Carabin & Shaw on your side will ensure that all of your questions are answered as they relate to your specific case.

To save time: As with any claim, building a solid case requires research and investigation. Because the laws surrounding rideshare services are still evolving, more time and resources may be needed to ensure your case has a solid foundation. Hiring an experienced rideshare accident attorney in Austin who is already familiar with the laws surrounding Uber accidents will alleviate the time and stress it would take for you to conduct research and investigation on your own.

To fight for you: There is a high chance that the insurance companies working for Uber, or even the other party involved, will take steps to pay you the least compensation possible for your accident and injuries. In cases like this, you need an experienced attorney to fight tooth and nail for you until you gain the compensation you are entitled. A well-versed Austin Uber and Lyft accident attorney will be able to confront those insurance companies while also providing their legal consultation to you along the way.
