Ridesharing is the modern way to get around. After its debut, ridesharing quickly became the most popular alternative to traditional taxi services, with two brand names coming out on top: Uber and Lyft. Today, billions of users rely on Uber and Lyft for rides. Unfortunately, not every ride is safe or successful. Negligent rideshare drivers and other dangers can put riders at risk.

What Caused Your Rideshare Accident? Is Somebody Liable?
Liability for a rideshare accident often goes to the person who was driving the vehicle. Both Uber and Lyft use independent contractors as drivers, which protects the companies from liability in most cases. Uber and Lyft both have $1 million insurance policies, however, to help pay for passengers’ injuries in accidents. The insurance process will depend on who or what caused the crash. At The Law Firm of Aaron A. Herbert, P.C., we accept ridesharing accident claims involving all types of causes.
- Negligent Uber/Lyft drivers
- Lack of driver background checks
- Distracted driving
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Drowsy Uber/Lyft drivers
- Drunk or intoxicated drivers
- Negligent third-party drivers
- Poorly maintained vehicles/vehicle breakdowns
- Uber/Lyft driver sexual assaults
Our attorneys accept ridesharing accident cases involving rollovers, rear-end collisions, intersection accidents, pedestrian collisions and more. Once we identify the cause of your accident, we can help you understand liability. If you were a ridesharing passenger, the company’s insurance policy should cover your damages. Otherwise, the driver’s individual policy may pay.
How Can Our Lawyers Help You?
It is important to partner with an attorney for a serious ridesharing accident case. Legal representation can make all the difference to your case’s outcome. Our lawyers will investigate your ridesharing accident to determine the liable party. Then, we will collect any available evidence of the at-fault party’s negligence, such as the Uber or Lyft driver’s cellphone history to prove distracted driving. We will use this information to negotiate for an amount we believe is fair for your losses. We can go head-to-head with major insurance corporations as well as Fortune 500 companies on your behalf in San Antonio.
Why File an Injury Claim?
An Uber or Lyft accident could give you significant personal injuries, such as broken bones or a concussion. You deserve answers if someone else caused your collision. That party may owe you financial compensation for your losses. Filing a personal injury claim can hold someone accountable for causing your accident. It could result in financial recovery for your medical expenses, property repairs, lost wages and other damages you have from the accident. An injury claim could be the best way for you to move forward after an Uber or Lyft accident.
