Uber Accident Lawyer

In the early 2000s, the ridesharing industry took the country by storm. Since then, billions of people all over the United States have taken advantage of this convenient service. However, with the increase in rideshare vehicles on the road, there has been a significant rise in the number of rideshare accidents each year. If you were injured in a rideshare accident, whether you were a passenger in an Uber vehicle or your vehicle was hit by an Uber driver, you must take legal action to recover compensation that will cover the cost of your accident-related damages. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our Uber accident lawyers can investigate your accident, build a strong case, and hold the insurance company responsible for your monetary losses.

How Can an Uber Accident Attorney Help?

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our Uber accident attorneys specialize in handling cases that involve rideshare companies. Our legal team understands the challenges accident victims face and how important it is to recover compensation after a collision, especially if they are severely injured and are out of work. 

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our legal team can also help by:

  • Investigating the accident
  • Gathering evidence
  • Consulting with experts
  • Filing paperwork
  • Negotiating with the insurance company
  • Filing a lawsuit

We commonly handle Uber accidents that involve the following scenarios:

  • Rideshare passengers involved in an auto accident due to a negligent Uber driver
  • Uber passenger involved in a car crash due to another negligent motorist
  • Uber driver struck by a negligent motorist
  • Motorist struck by a negligent rideshare driver

Our legal team knows how to investigate this type of complex case to determine which insurance policy was active at the time of the collision and which party should be held financially responsible for your losses.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

When you hire an Uber accident attorney on our legal team, they will handle all interactions with the insurance company. Your attorney will know exactly what your claim is worth and will take the insurance company head-on, ensuring you recover every penny of compensation you’re owed. If the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable settlement offer, your Uber accident lawyer will prepare your case for court. During this time, they will continue to negotiate with the insurance adjuster. In most cases, Uber accident claims are settled out of court. An insurance company is often more willing to negotiate once a lawsuit has been filed.

Auto Insurance Requirements for Uber Drivers

To become an Uber driver, an individual must have personal auto insurance that extends past the state’s minimum requirements. The exact amount of coverage that’s required will depend on the rideshare driving period.

App is Off

When the Uber app is off and the driver is using their auto insurance, they are only required to have the state’s minimum insurance coverage:

  • $30,000 of bodily injury liability coverage per person injured in an accident
  • $60,000 of bodily injury liability coverage per collision
  • $25,000 of liability coverage for property damage per collision

Period One

When the driver is actively using the Uber app and waiting for a ride request, they must have a higher level of liability coverage:

  • $50,000 of bodily injury liability coverage per person injured in a car crash
  • $100,000 of bodily injury liability coverage per collision
  • $25,000 of liability coverage for property damage per collision

The driver may need to purchase coverage on their own, or Uber may provide it. Major rideshare companies commonly offer contingent coverage to their drivers during this period. Some auto insurance providers do not allow different levels of coverage that will go into effect at different times.

Periods Two and Three

When an Uber driver is on their way to pick up a passenger or when they’re transporting a passenger, the required liability is higher:

  • $1 million for bodily injury and property damage per accident and underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage

What is the Statute of Limitations for Uber Accidents in Texas?

If you were involved in an Uber accident, you will have two years to file a lawsuit against the other party. The failure to file within this time frame can result in your case being dismissed. This means that you will be unable to recover any compensation for your accident-related losses.

What Damages Can I Recover After a Rideshare Accident?

If you suffered injuries in an Uber accident, you may be entitled to the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Past and future medical care
  • Salarios perdidos
  • Pérdida de consorcio
  • Pérdida de calidad de vida
  • Pérdida del disfrute de la vida
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Incapacidad permanente
  • Cicatrices y desfiguración

To determine which damages you’re entitled to, your Uber accident lawyer will carefully review your case, consult with experts, and accurately value your losses.

What Types of Accident Injuries are Common in Rideshare Collisions?
