What To Do If You’ve Been Injured In An Uber Vehicle Or By An Uber Driver
At the tap of a finger, an Uber driver arrives at your doorstep. Texas law requires all drivers, including Uber drivers to maintain liability insurance. With the proliferation of ride- sharing, there are hundreds of accidents of ride share drivers every day. Currently, ride share drivers carry large liability insurance policies to protect the riders in their vehicles, as well as other motorists who may be involved in accidents with ride share drivers. The Alworth Law Firm understands the tricky circumstances that both the driver and the passenger are in. Jon Alworth has over three decades of personal injury law experience helping individuals across the state of Texas. As a trial lawyer, he will give you an honest evaluation and make sure you are treated fairly.
If you were the passenger, the accident cannot possibly be your fault. Your ride share driver may be at fault. Often both the ride share driver and the driver of another vehicle involved in the collision are at fault. You may have valid claims against the ride share driver, who carries a large amount of insurance, the ride share company and any other vehicle or vehicles involved in the accident. There are a lot of moving parts to these cases, and it is important that you retain experienced counsel to determine the culpable parties, secure and obtain evidence, and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Uber Drivers Often Have Claims as Well
Jon has represented Uber drivers who have been seriously injured in accidents that were not their fault. When you are out on the road as much as ride share drivers are, you are all too often exposed to careless drivers. Uber drivers and other ride share drivers often have claims against the careless motorists who caused the accident.
In serious injury cases, an Uber driver may be entitled to compensation from not only the careless motorists insurance policy, but also from the large underinsured/uninsured motorists’ coverage that may be provided by the ride share company. Consult with an experienced attorney who understands all of the types of coverage that may be available to provide you with the compensation you are entitled to receive under the law.
