Uber & Lyft Accidents

Dallas Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyers

Ride-Share Services & Car Accidents in Texas

Ridesharing services have become incredibly popular in the past several years. These services - including the most widely used Uber and Lyft - are preferred by customers for being more convenient and affordable than taxis or public transportation. Unfortunately, their unique policies have created concerns and issues in cases where riders are injured in accidents.

At The Daspit Law Firm, our Dallas personal injury lawyers are passionate about helping victims and families after they’ve been involved in traffic accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured in an Uber or Lyft accident in Dallas, you may face unique legal challenges when attempting to recover compensation for your damages.

Ridesharing Accidents & Personal Injury Claims

Ride-share services have introduced a number of concerns when it comes to car accidents and personal injury. This is due to the fact that they are relatively new, and because of the unique relationships between companies, drivers, and riders.

  • Insurance Coverage - When you are injured in an accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to recover compensation from that party’s insurance provider. In cases involving Uber and Lyft accidents, companies typically carry a $1 million commercial liability policy. However, your ability to recover compensation can be complicated by their unique insurance policies. For example, Uber will only cover damages if their drivers have their apps turned on during a trip. If their app is off, victims may have to pursue compensation through the driver’s personal auto insurance.
  • Drivers - Uber and Lyft drivers are considered independent contractors rather than company employees. This legal relationship can complicate the issue of liability when personal injury claims are filed. It also raises questions about the safety, regulation, and training of drivers. Most ridesharing services don’t require much from drivers in order for them to work.

  • What a great experience with the team at Daspit Law firm!

    “What a great experience with the team at Daspit Law firm! From the moment I walked in I received first class treatment. Not only did Brandon get me more than I thought possible but we didn't even go to court. Also got to meet John Daspit himself who made me feel right at home. They both get 5 stars for sure!”

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
