Lubbock Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyer

After an accident with a rideshare driver, you may find yourself trying to sort through a host of complicated insurance policies. You don’t have to face Uber or Lyft’s insurance representatives on your own. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our Uber and Lyft accident lawyers can help you determine how to get the coverage you need to heal and move on after a rideshare accident in Lubbock.

What’s more, we work based on a contingency fee, meaning that you pay nothing unless and until we win for you.

How Can a Lubbock Uber and Lyft Accident Attorney Help?

We know that you could be facing an uphill battle with your injuries and other challenges related to the accident. We can handle every aspect of your case so that you can focus on healing both your body and your wallet.

Demonstrating Evidence Of Negligence

In any claim or lawsuit, we will work to show an insurance company or a jury that the other driver was negligent. This demonstration will show that the other driver behaved carelessly or recklessly, and that this carelessness caused your accident and injuries.

If there is a police report of the accident and the rideshare driver was ticketed, we will use this as evidence of negligence. Other forms of evidence we may seek include:

  • Witness testimony
  • Traffic camera footage of the accident scene
  • The driver’s cell phone records, if available
  • Red light camera photos
Y mucho más.

Communicating and Negotiating with the Insurance Companies

Insurance companies may initially try to sympathize with your situation, but we know that there can be many hurdles in the process of seeking fair compensation in an insurance claim.

An insurer may try to:

  • Say that your injuries aren’t as extensive as you say
  • Claim you made your own injuries worse
  • Ask you to make a recorded statement and use your words out of context
  • Use your social media posts after the accident against you

It can get complicated when you seek compensation, but we will handle all the conversations with the insurance companies for you. We want to ensure that your words aren’t used to lessen your settlement and that every possible dollar available is included in your case value.

Handling the Paperwork for You

In any insurance claim or lawsuit, a good deal of paperwork changes hands, involving emails, phone calls, requesting documentation, and submitting forms. However, we’ll take care of all these legal details so that you don’t have to.

For instance, we’ll ensure that your case meets the state’s statute of limitations, an important deadline that limits your time to sue in Texas – as long as you contact us in time. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, we will generally have two years to file suit if necessary.

The Process Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated

An insurance claim or lawsuit can take time and require phone calls, negotiation, and compelling evidence of the other driver’s negligence. We can take care of these aspects of your case on your behalf.

We want you to rest easy knowing we will take on your case at no risk to you. We work based on contingency fees, meaning that:

You don’t need to offer out-of-pocket legal fees to get started.
We only secure some form of payment if we win for you.

What Types Of Economic and Non-Economic Damages Can I Pursue?

In many situations, you may be able to seek a recovery for your losses through Uber and Lyft’s insurance policies. How much compensation you could seek will depend on various factors related to your injuries, including:

  • How much you’ve spent on medical costs related to the accident
  • How serious your injuries are
  • To what extent the accident has changed your life and ability to earn a living

Other factors may determine the amount of compensation available to you, and these factors are related to the insurance coverage that applies to your situation.

In some cases, an accident victim can recover the following types of compensation:

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

What Uber and Lyft’s Insurance Covers

Here is a major determinant in your accident case: if the rideshare driver was actively picking up or driving a passenger to a destination, they (and you) will be covered by Uber or Lyft’s insurance. According to Lyft and Uber, both companies offer up to $1 million in liability insurance if you were injured in an accident caused by a rideshare driver.

However, there are scenarios where the rideshare driver’s personal auto insurance policy will kick in, and Uber and Lyft’s coverage will not apply.

Situations Where Uber and Lyft’s Coverage May not Apply

After a rideshare driver causes an accident in which you were harmed, the driver’s personal auto insurance policy may apply if:

  • They were not actively logged into the Uber or Lyft app.
  • They were logged into the app, but they were waiting to pick up a passenger.

You may find this situation more limiting, as a driver’s personal auto insurance coverage may not provide enough compensation to cover your medical bills and other losses. If this is the case, we could also pursue a lawsuit on your behalf.

Keep in mind that we will need to prove negligence on the part of the rideshare driver in order to pursue a lawsuit. Our Uber and Lyft accident lawyers can gather the evidence necessary to do so and take your case to court on your behalf.
