What Are the Most Common Causes of Rideshare Accidents In Dallas-Fort Worth?

Accidents in the Dallas-Fort Worth area have numerous causes. What most of them have in common is driver negligence. This negligence allows an injury victim to seek compensation for damages. In many cases, negligence manifests in the following ways:

  • Distracted driving;
  • Drowsy driving;
  • Driving under the influence (DUI);
  • Speeding;
  • Following too closely;
  • Poorly maintained vehicle;
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way;
  • Aggressive driving;

After an accident, you will have to prove that the other driver committed one of the actions listed above or some other act of negligence. For this reason, a Lyft and Uber car accident attorney is essential for gathering evidence and establishing the validity of your claim.

Damages You May Recover from an Uber Crash in Dallas-Fort Worth

After a Lyft or Uber crash, you’ll likely have damages, many or all of which are eligible for compensation. Your Lyft and Uber car accident lawyer will review and explain to you your potential damage claims, which may include:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost wages, both present, and future;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Property damage;

In some instances, punitive damages may be available. Punitive damages are awarded when the court wants to send a message to the defendant that their actions were grossly negligent or malicious.

It is quite common for insurance companies to dispute the value of victims’ damages or flat out deny their Lyft or Uber accident claims. You need a ride share accident attorney on your side to represent your interests. Without one, you are likely to be offered a low-ball insurance payout.

Who May Be Liable for Uber or Lyft Accidents in the DFW Area?

Uber and Lyft provide insurance for their drivers, but only under certain circumstances. In some cases, the driver’s personal liability insurance will be the primary or sole coverage applicable to an injury. In general, there are three situations, for insurance purposes, during which an Uber or Lyft driver might cause an injury accident:

  • While on their personal time and not logged into the rideshare work app;
  • While logged into the rideshare work app but not carrying a passenger;
  • While logged into the rideshare work app and carrying a passenger or on their way to pick up a passenger;

If the driver is not logged in or working, then their personal liability insurance will be used to cover damages. If an accident happens when a rideshare driver is logged in and waiting for a ride request, rideshare insurance kicks in but is severely limited. The maximum payout per injured individual is $50,000, with a $100,000 cap per incident. However, when the driver has a passenger or is on the way to pick one up, rideshare insurance for injuries increases to $1,000,000.
