Who Is Liable for My Injuries When I Am in An Uber Accident in Dallas?

A driver transporting passengers as an agent of Uber will need to first go through Uber’s auto insurance policy before they are able to file a claim with their own insurance company. There are very specific circumstances in which Uber’s insurance will take responsibility for the damages caused in an accident.

To begin, the driver of the Uber will need to be working at the time of the accident. They can be waiting for a passenger to transport, be on their way to pick up a passenger, have a passenger in the vehicle, or have just dropped off a passenger.

As long as they are signed in to the Uber app and on the clock, Uber’s auto insurance provider is obligated to cover damage done to any other vehicles involved in the accident as well as the medical expenses and lost wages of the passenger(s) and any individuals whom the Uber driver struck when the vehicle crashed.

We Help You Get The Compensation You Deserve

When you’re injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by the negligence of someone else, that person should be expected to cover your costs. Whether the responsible party is the Uber driver’s insurance provider, Uber’s auto insurance company, or Uber itself, you shouldn’t have to pay for the mistakes of another. Some of the most frequently sought damages in a car crash include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Effects of disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost wages
  • Damage to potential future earnings
  • Loss of household services
  • Mental anguish.

Additionally, you could be awarded punitive damages if the judge determines the actions of the defendant to have been malicious. Punitive damages are meant to make an example of the defendant. Punishing them will hopefully prevent future wrongdoers from making the same decisions and inflicting harm to other accident victims.

The Dallas Uber Accident Attorneys at Crain Brogdon Answer Your Important Questions

We know that you have a lot of questions about your specific case and we would like to schedule a free consultation to discuss your injuries. However, there are many general questions that we are sometimes asked that we would like to share below.

How Long Do I Have to File an Uber Accident Lawsuit in Dallas? 

The statute of limitations to file a car accident case in Texas is two years. There are some rare exceptions to this law, which we can talk about when we discuss your specific case.

Can Uber Be Held Liable for a Car Accident in Dallas? 

A claim against Uber is difficult because they have an independent contractor relationship (Uber drivers are not considered employees), but it is possible for Uber to be held liable.

Doesn’t Uber Have Insurance?

Like all large companies, Uber does have insurance. With Uber, it is a bit different, as drivers are covered by Uber’s insurance policy when they haven’t yet matched with a passenger, but the insurance changes once a passenger is picked up.

What Happens If the Uber Accident Was Partially My Fault? 

You may still receive partial compensation if you were partially at fault. Texas is a modified comparative state, which means the blame for the accident is divided up.

What Should I Do First If I Am Involved in an Uber Accident? 

Your health is our foremost concern. The first thing you should do is get medical attention for your injuries. Once you are stable, contact a Dallas Uber accident lawyer as soon as possible.

How Do You Get Paid? 

We work on a contingency-fee basis, which means we only get paid if you get settlement compensation or are paid through a jury verdict.

We hope that these questions help with some of your general questions. Of course, we know that your case is unique. So, in order for us to look further into your case, contact us at (214) 522-9404 today for a free consultation.
