Why You Should Pick an Experienced College Station Uber Accident Lawyer

Ridesharing is a relatively new phenomenon that departs from more traditional, long-established means of transportation like taxi services and public transit. Simply put, taxi services and public transit are more likely to have safeguards in place to prevent accidents and subsequent injury. Ridesharing services, on the other hand, have not had the same amount of time in the market to create, improve upon, and maintain adequate safety measures.

An experienced College Station Uber accident attorney is aware of the legal differences between ridesharing services and other longer-established forms of transportation. This knowledge can be used to advance your interests and ultimately to achieve the greatest financial recovery possible. With a proven track record of success in arguing personal injury claims, it is clear that an Uber or Lyft accident attorney in College Station from Zinda Law Group is best suited to handle your case.

Are There Differences Between a Lyft Accident Lawyer in College Station and a College Station Uber Accident Attorney?

Whether your accident occurred while riding in a Lyft vehicle or an Uber will only slightly affect your claim. The primary difference is potentially to whom the liability will be assigned. Both Uber and Lyft effectively offer the same service; therefore, there will not be a massive difference in your claim depending on the service that you were using when the accident occurred.

A Zinda Law Group College Station car accident attorney is familiar with both services and any significant differences between them that may affect your case. We understand how extremely important it is to assign liability to the correct business entity. If you hire an attorney who does not, there is a chance you may gain no compensation whatsoever.


What is Ridesharing and is it hard to meet the requirements for driving for lyft or uber?

A relatively new phenomenon, ridesharing utilizes smartphone technology to enable third-party contract workers to provide transportation services. This combination of technology and contracted private drivers has been a driving force in the gig economy. The gig economy is not a new concept, but public awareness and participation has grown substantially more recently.

Part of the reason is because of services like Uber and Lyft, which have made it extremely easy for individuals to earn money. For example, to drive Uber or Lyft, all someone has to do is have a motor vehicle with aspects fitting those required by Uber and Lyft, and that’s pretty much it. If someone simply has a vehicle that meets the set forth requirements, they are practically ready to start making money in the gig economy.

This of course brings great benefit to the average rideshare driver/gig-employee. They do not need any special training, they just need:

  • A car meeting the minimum requirements,
  • Insurance,
  • A driver’s license, and
  • The ability to pass the driver background check.

While these relaxed requirements are good for drivers, they can also be a detriment to the safety of the people being driven. In fact, when you think about how little is required to become an Uber or Lyft driver, you may start second-guessing your decision to ride with them.

Differences Between Uber and Lyft and More Traditional Forms of Transportation

College Station residents have long relied on more traditional forms of public transit and taxi-cab services to get to work and the university campus. Like many American cities, public transportation offers a highly effective and cheap way of facilitating mass transit. While most Texans drive their own cars, plenty of them use the shuttles, cabs, and taxi services in Aggieland; they have at times not even been able to keep up with demand.

When Lyft and Uber became an alternative to public transit and taxicabs, an immediate impact was felt on the transportation sector of our local economy. For some people, especially our visitors, it became a useful, alternative transportation option. But there is no doubt the convenience has come with a price. For example, ridesharing has contributed to increased traffic congestion. The result of such has been many accidents and injuries.

How Ridesharing Has Led to an Increase in Automobile Accidents

It is expected that the number of car accidents in College Station will increase every August, when new Aggies arrive in town and start learning where everything is. But some of the spikes in car crash incidents in recent years may have been because of rideshare services.

A recent study conducted by the University of Chicago indicated that app-based rideshare services are associated with a 3% increase in fatalities. This determination was made by tracking the popularity of rideshare usage between 2010 and 2016 and reviewing the finances of both Lyft and Uber. The researchers’ analysis uncovered some troubling statistics, the most troubling of which is that the increase in the number of ride-share vehicles on the road caused nearly 1,000 car accident deaths daily.

To support this finding, the study points to the fact that Uber and Lyft want to keep as many drivers on the road as possible to make their riders feel that the service is convenient. In order to do that, Uber and Lyft subsidize drivers to stay on the road in between fares. The result is that more cars are on the road at any given time than usual.

Therefore, not only is ridesharing less safe than the passengers might think, it is also statistically less safe for other drivers on the road. Whether your accident injury was caused by your own rideshare driver or you were hit in your own vehicle by one, you need to learn exactly what caused the crash if you want to succeed in getting compensation for your damages.

They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.
My experience with Zinda Law Group was pretty awesome. I definitely would recommend their Law firm. Brendan and his team were very friendly, helpful and informative about my case and were able to win as well. I really appreciate all of their hard work and dedication, I highly recommend.Thank you all again for your help and your time.Sincerely,Pat.b
I was very satisfied with the professionalism of my attorney and the paralegals, they helped me threw this accident and got me a great settlement, all while keeping me involved and informed. Zinda law group made me feel comfortable and I trusted them to fight for me. The trust was well placed! Thank Yous, I appreciate all that Yous done for me and my family!!
I’ve had such a great experience with Zinda law group! They’ve handled everything relatively quickly and professionally. They really have made my life a lot easier. I recommend anyone dealing with auto accidents (or similarly) to Zinda Law group.I felt I was very important to them and that my feelings and thoughts were validated. They treated me with much care and respect, not like “just another client”. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.

Very accommodating they work extremely hard to make sure that you are compensated from start to finish they made it happen and made a rough time a lot smoother than I could of ever imagined thank you all for everything if you are looking for a lawyer that goes above beyond look no further Michael will get you taken care of!
Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
They helped me after I got into car accident, they are such a great professional business. I would honestly recommend them to anyone that would need help after a car accident for sure, they kept me up to date with everything that was happening on with my case. I had multiple people working on my said case and they were very professional and nice whenever they had called me and kept it very simple for me to understand what was actually going on. I'm extremely happy that I had found them and went with them to help me and I'm so thankful for them. 10/10 would recommend!
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I ended up getting hit by a car when I was at school at the age of 17. My whole life ended up changing after that accident and because of family matters I wasn't able to get help till I was 18. I found Zinda law firm and I can swear to anyone these guys will help you! I thought I wasn't gonna get justice till the members of Zinda proved me wrong.

I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

No one wakes up in the morning expecting tragedy to strike, but if it does we would highly recommend Zinda Law Group to anyone that should need their service. A very special thanks to everyone that worked diligently on our behalf.Sincerely,Blane and Cindy Colbert

Common Causes of Ridesharing accidents

As has been stated, ridesharing services rely on private citizens using their privately owned vehicles to provide transportation. Therefore, many of the same reasons that an ordinary passenger vehicle is involved in a car accident are the same for ridesharing accidents. Below is a list of some of the most common causes of ridesharing accidents in and around College Station:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Failure to yield
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failure to signal
  • Road rage
  • Following too closely (tailgating)
  • Distracted Driving

As stated, these causes are not entirely unique to ride-sharing services, but they are prevalent, nonetheless. If you happen to be a rideshare vehicle passenger when the driver is not abiding by the ordinary standards of driver etiquette, you should feel empowered to cancel the ride and get out of the vehicle. When a rideshare driver engages in any of the above-mentioned behaviors, the chances for an accident—and injury—are far greater.

However, adhering to ordinary safety practices is their responsibility and not yours. For this reason, Uber and Lyft have been strongly encouraged to impose more stringent requirements on who is allowed to provide ridesharing services.

If you are an alert passenger, you may notice that the driver is engaging in practices that put your safety at risk. Unfortunately, by the time you notice, it may already be too late. If you have already been injured in a rideshare-related crash, your focus should turn to documenting the accident.

What you should do after being in a rideshare accident

The first thing that you should do after being in a rideshare accident is to assess your injuries and seek proper medical attention. If you are fine, then try to assess whether the other passengers—if you have any—have suffered significant injuries. Bear in mind that some injuries will not be readily apparent, and their effect will only manifest after some time has passed. For this reason, your first action should always be to contact the authorities and have an ambulance sent to the scene if necessary.

Next, document the scene of the accident if you are able. Having documentation such as pictures of the accident scene and witness statements will be crucial to the success of your claim. When it comes to taking pictures, try to capture the full breadth of the accident scene. Specifically, try to get close-ups of the damage done to vehicles or property, the positions of the vehicles, and any injuries incurred.

Again, if your injuries are serious, documentation should not be your first concern. Contact the authorities first and have an ambulance dispatched to assess your medical status before doing anything else. But, once you know that you are stable, try to gather as much evidence as possible. Then, the next step is to contact a College Station Uber accident attorney.

A College Station Uber accident attorney can begin working on your behalf to make sure that all the reasonably attainable evidence is preserved. This is an important step in any sort of litigation or dispute resolution, and it is why it would be taken so seriously by a Zinda Law Group College Station car accident attorney.

Unfortunately, in many instances, people who believe they may be liable for injuries resulting from automobile accidents may remove evidence from the scene. They are trying to hide or even destroy anything that may suggest their culpability. A Lyft accident attorney in College Station is well aware of these facts and can begin to ensure that evidence is properly preserved.
