Why You Need an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Uber or Lyft Accident Claim in Dallas
Uber and Lyft have given millions rides to Texans since arriving in the state in 2014. A 2017 law streamlined regulations for Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) across Texas, guaranteeing their presence for many years to come. Nationally, Uber and Lyft claim 99% of the TNC market and continue to grow as more Americans choose to use their services each day.
More rideshare drivers on the road means more accidents involving these vehicles, especially in urban environments like Dallas. Many types of accidents can occur on busy, congested streets and the injuries that result from these are often severe. The Texas Department of Transportation found over 15,000 reported serious injury crashes in 2021, with a 15% increase in fatalities from 2020.

It’s important to connect with a lawyer soon after getting treatment for injuries sustained in a rideshare accident so they can begin analyzing all the details and start making a case for the Dallas Uber accident compensation you need.
In most cases, the driver or the TNC they drive for will be the primary at-fault party in a car accident. What many don’t know, however, is that the insurance coverage carried by these drivers is different depending on whether they’re actively taking rides, connected with a customer via the app, or driving with a passenger.
