Ridesharing Company Insurance Coverage

Texas requires all ridesharing companies to carry auto liability insurance that compensates accident victims. The insurance must cover the driver, passenger, or another victim any time the driver operates the vehicle.

How much coverage is available depends on the driver’s job status at the time of the accident. This presents three possible scenarios as follows:

Driver Is Not Active On the App

For you to be eligible for compensation from the rideshare company, the driver must turn on the app and log in to their account when operating the vehicle. If the driver does not log in or turn on the app, the rideshare company is not liable for the accident.

A rideshare accident attorney would submit a claim to the driver’s personal auto insurance company to compensate for damages. If the insurance company accepts the claim, it would assume up to 100 percent liability for all damages.

Driver is Active On the App

If a rideshare driver is logged onto the rideshare app while operating the vehicle, the rideshare company is liable for any accidents or injuries the driver causes. It does not matter if there is a paying passenger in the vehicle.

How much compensation is available in these types of accidents? Rideshare companies offer the following coverage:

  • $50,000 for death or bodily injury per person
  • $100,000 per accident (wrongful deaths and personal injury claims)
  • $50,000 for property damage

These are the minimum amounts that Texas requires. However, the rideshare companies may offer more coverage to cover your damages.

Driver Logs Onto the App and Pairs With a Passenger

Ridesharing companies provide coverage for rideshare accident victims when the driver is responsible for the accident and they are logged onto the app with a paired, paying rider. If the driver is on the way to pick up a passenger or a passenger is in the vehicle, the rideshare company may offer a million dollars in coverage for the following:

  • Muerte por negligencia
  • Bodily injury
  • Daños materiales
  • Rideshare companies also carry uninsured motorist (UM) protection.

And many other variables.

In some cases, an auto accident victim can pursue compensation for the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Costes sanitarios pasados y futuros
  • Salarios perdidos
  • Daños materiales
  • Pérdida de consorcio
  • Pérdida de calidad de vida
  • Pérdida del disfrute de la vida
  • Incapacidad permanente

Your rideshare accident lawyer will carefully assess your damages to ensure you pursue every penny of compensation you’re owed.

What Are Common Causes Of Ridesharing Accidents

Some of the most common causes of rideshare accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Failing to stop at a red light or stop sign
  • Following too closely
  • Inclement weather
  • Poor road conditions

What is the Statute Of Limitations for Ridesharing Accidents?

In Texas, you will have two years from the date of the accident to pursue compensation. If you fail to meet this important deadline, your case may be dismissed and you will be unable to pursue compensation for your accident-related losses. When you hire a rideshare accident attorney at Loncar Lyon Jenkins, they can handle every aspect of your case, including ensuring your case is filed within the statute of limitations.
