Uber Accident Lawyer in San Antonio
As ridesharing has grown in popularity, particularly in urban areas, the number of San Antonio car accidents involving Uber vehicles has increased as well. While the requirements for becoming an Uber driver are minimal, one thing Uber does require is for all drivers to carry additional liability insurance for accident-related injuries and losses. This is a requirement under Texas law as well, and it applies any time an Uber driver is using the app – even if he or she is not providing a ride.
Uber maintains insurance coverage for its “rideshare driver-partners” as well. According to Uber’s website:
“While you’re online with Uber before you accept a request, you are covered by our insurance policy for your liability to a third party if you are in an accident when you’re at fault. . .
“While you drive to pick up a rider but before they get into your car, you are covered by our insurance policy for three things: 1) your liability to a third party, 2) any injuries due to an uninsured or underinsured motorist, and 3) collision and comprehensive coverage if you already have such coverage on your personal insurance. . .
“When a rider is in your car, you have the same coverage as you do on your way to pick them up, plus the rider in your car is covered.”
As a result, if you have been involved in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle, whether as a ridesharing passenger or as the occupant of another vehicle, your claim for compensation will most likely involve a claim against Uber’s insurance company, the Uber driver’s insurance company, or both.
