Informed Advocacy For People Injured In Uber And Lyft Accidents

In recent decades, ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft have become entrenched in our society. They are very common means of transportation for people who seek affordable, quickly accessible rides for short or long distances through apps on their cellphones. If you were injured while riding as a passenger in such a vehicle or if your private car or truck was struck by a ride-sharing vehicle, insurance issues can be complex. You owe it to yourself to get qualified legal counsel right away.

At Basu Law Firm, PLLC, we represent people injured in motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck and motorcycle accidents. Ride-sharing vehicle accidents sometimes present special legal challenges, but our experience and knowledge will give you the reassurance that you need to get your case started. The sooner you contact us, the more effective our fact-finding can be.

Factors Affecting Ride-Sharing Service Accidents

Ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft must insure their drivers, according to Texas laws. Determining the liability of that driver will depend, in part, on verifying whether they had the ride-sharing app running at the time of the crash. If so, then people injured in a crash that the ride-sharing driver caused should be compensated up to $1 million as needed to cover medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. But if the ride-sharing app was not activated when the accident occurred, other sources of compensation may apply instead, such as:

  • The ride-sharing driver’s personal or commercial insurance
  • Another motorist’s insurance
  • Another liable party, such as a government entity responsible for maintaining signs and roads

If our team investigates your ride-sharing vehicle crash, we will not rest until we have uncovered the appropriate source from which to pursue compensation for you.

Meanwhile, we will use accident reconstruction and your medical prognosis to begin preparing a compelling injury claim or lawsuit on your behalf.
