Uber and Rideshare Accident Lawyers in Austin

Since its launch in 2009, Uber has built a global reach through its innovative approach to transportation, and today it operates in more than 600 cities worldwide and serves millions of users. In 2017, the company returned to Austin after a yearlong hiatus, joining a number of other ridesharing services in the city, including Lyft, Fasten, Ride Austin, and more.

But what happens if you or a loved one are involved in an Uber accident, whether as an Uber passenger, a driver or passenger of another vehicle, or a pedestrian?

Uber drivers are required to undergo a background check, have a clean driving record, and carry a personal insurance policy. However, they operate as independent contractors instead of employees, therefore Uber is not always responsible for the conduct of its drivers.

What Are My Options?

If you have sustained injuries from an Uber vehicle, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit or an insurance claim to recover compensation for your medical expenses, property damage, and other costs.

Uber carries a $1 million liability insurance policy that can cover the accident, but you must be able to prove your injuries were the result of the collision. The company will not provide coverage if the incident occurred while the driver had their Uber app turned off or was not on duty.

Do I Need an Personal Injury Attorney?

These types of incidents are usually very complex, as each accident may be treated differently based on its unique set of facts and circumstances. This is why it is essential to find a skilled personal injury attorney who has the experience necessary to handle your case.

If you have been injured in a ridesharing accident, the personal injury attorneys of Zinda Law Group will fight tirelessly to help you recover the compensation to which you are entitled. Call us at 800-863-5312 for a free consultation about your case.
