We Know How Scary Rideshare Accidents Can Be

Any car accident is scary, but rideshare accidents are often more stressful due to the complex legal nature surrounding them. You probably know that car accident cases award the injured individual at the expense of the one at fault’s insurance company. Add a rideshare company into the mix, however, and it’s not so easy to establish fault.

Who is at fault for a rideshare accident? Is it solely the driver? Is it the rideshare company? Is it the insurance company? Does rideshare have special insurance? These questions can plague your mind after an accident, but there is no need to let them consume you. Our Odessa, TX, Uber accident lawyers are here to take care of everything so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare services are getting more and more popular in Odessa and the entire Midland-Odessa region. That increase in popularity alone is going to increase the risk of accidents, so it’s always best to be prepared. You don’t have to be worried about legal repercussions with Attorney Robert White in your corner fighting for your rights.

The Three Periods of Rideshare Insurance

Rideshare services have their own insurance policies for drivers, but they don’t universally apply to all situations. While every accident is covered to some extent, the level of that coverage can vary based on what part of the job the rideshare driver is currently engaged in. These are the different periods of rideshare insurance:

The first period of insurance is in effect while the driver is on the job but hasn’t accepted any trip requests yet. During this period, rideshare services provide maximum liability coverage of $100,000 with up to $25,000 worth of coverage for property damage and up to $50,000 worth of coverage for medical expenses per person.

The second period of coverage begins once the rideshare driver accepts a trip request. From the moment the driver accepts a trip request to the moment they pick up their passenger, liability coverage extends to $1 million.

This is the period in which a passenger is involved with the rideshare. As a passenger, this is the only period you’ll ever have to deal with, and like the second period, the maximum coverage limit here is $1 million.

Uber Accident FAQs

The actions you should take after a rideshare accident are largely the same as what you’d do after any kind of vehicle accident. Make sure everyone is okay, get emergency services if need be, and report the accident to the police. The only extra step is reporting the accident to the rideshare service company like Uber or Lyft.

Compensation is owed to anyone involved in an accident who isn’t at fault for the accident. As a passenger, it’s rare to be considered partially at fault, so the vast majority of cases will have you being owed compensation for the entirety of the costs suffered as a result of the accident.

The most obvious costs you’ll suffer in an accident are medical bills and property damage. Compensation for these costs is expected, but compensation also extends to medication and ongoing medical treatment. You can even argue for lost wages if your injury prevents you from working to the same degree you used to.
