What Makes Lyft or Uber Car Accidents So Complicated?

There are so many reasons why accidents involving Uber or Lyft drivers turn out to be complicated legal cases. Some of the reasons why include:

  • The Uber or Lyft driver who caused your crash might deny doing anything wrong.
  • The other driver might try to blame you for causing your collision.
  • The rideshare driver’s insurance company denied your accident claim.

Another reason why these accidents can be so complicated is because different rules and regulations apply to rideshare drivers, depending on what the driver was doing at the time of the accident. That’s why the circumstances involving your rideshare accident matter. Different laws often apply.

Many of these rules and regulations involve whether the rideshare driver was on duty at the time of the accident. In most cases, a Lyft or Uber driver is considered to be on duty if they were:

  • Driving with a passenger in their vehicle
  • Driving to pick up a passenger
  • Checking the ridesharing app about a prospective passenger
  • Looking up directions for a ridesharing journey
  • Driving with the ridesharing app on

It’s also important to note that Lyft or Uber drivers do not work directly for either company. The drivers are independent contractors. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced attorney on our side who can help you explore all your legal options.

  • What if I can’t come to your office?

    That’s not a problem. We understand that an accident may have left you injured and that traveling may be difficult or impossible. We care about your well-being and comfort. So if you can’t come to our office, we will come to you. One of our lawyers can meet you at your home, in your hospital room or anywhere else that is convenient.

    We’ll review the details of your case and ask you some questions. Then we can review your legal options and give you an idea about what to expect. We can also answer any questions that you have about your case.

  • How long will it take to resolve my case?

    It depends on many factors, such as the complexity of your case and how much money is at stake. In general, a case may take anywhere between a few months to a year. If your case goes to trial, it can take even longer.

    Insurance companies try to delay the resolution of a case as long as possible. They don’t want to pay you the compensation you deserve. They are hoping that the longer they delay your case, the more likely it will be that you will give up or accept a lower settlement offer. We will guide you through the process every step of the way.

  • Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?

    Soon after your accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company. They are offering you a settlement! It may not be for as much as you were hoping, but they are promising quick payment. This offer will fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered. The insurance company just wants to save money.

    You should never agree to any settlement unless you have first discussed the offer with an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer. You can get a much better settlement when an insurance company knows you have a personal injury attorney willing to go to trial on your behalf.

You Have Rights. We Can Fight for Them. Call Karam. Your Case Counts Here.

The stakes can be very high for your Lyft or Uber accident. Depending on many different factors (severity of your injury, length of your recovery, etc.) your accident-related expenses could add up to thousands or millions of dollars. Our law firm can give you an accurate assessment of what your case could be worth. We can then fight for your rights and demand the compensation you rightfully deserve.
