Rideshare Accident Attorney in San Antonio, TX
Accident with Uber, Lyft, or a Local Rideshare company? Don’t wait to call our experienced rideshare attorneys to get started on your case.
Ridesharing is increasingly popular among residents of Texas because it is a low-cost way to get from point A to point B. It is also a great way for people to make money driving their own cars on their own schedules.
While rideshares like Uber and Lyft are beneficial to both drivers and passengers, they are also subject to human error. Accidents do happen, and it’s important to know your rights as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or third party. Uber, Lyft, or the insurance companies may try to convince you to unreasonably settle, so it is necessary to speak with a personal injury attorney to seek a professional opinion before making any rash decisions.
How do you handle an accident with Uber or Lyft?
First and foremost, call emergency services if needed, and report the accident to the rideshare company. Then, document any evidence you can, whether that is a screenshot of the part of the ride in which your accident occurred or photos of damaged vehicles and/or property. When speaking with an adjuster from the other insurance company, it is important to recount the exact details very carefully. Ideally, you should have legal counsel from a rideshare lawyer before speaking with any insurance company to ensure that they don’t use your words against you to deny your claim. Strong legal precedent has yet to be established in cases involving Lyft and Uber, so having a lawyer to help you navigate your case will help you receive the damages you deserve.
