Utilizing a rideshare service eliminates many of the inconveniences that
can arise if you choose to drive yourself or use public transportation.
You don’t have to park or deal with traffic, and can get a ride
on demand. Of course, Uber and Lyft drivers are just as likely to get in car
accidents as any other driver. If you were injured in an accident while riding in
an Uber or Lyft, understanding the legal implications can be complex.

How Do Uber & Lyft Accidents Differ from Typical Collisions?
When you are injured in an accident as an Uber or Lyft passenger, the aftermath
can be very confusing. A normal car accident claim involves negotiation
with the other driver and their insurance company to determine fault,
and therefore who is responsible for paying the claim.
Liability when a rideshare driver is involved is not as straightforward:
Did you assume any kind of responsibility by using Uber or Lyft? Are you
supposed to pay for your own injury-related expenses? Will your own insurance
company provide you with benefits?
Lyft and Uber each have their own insurance policies that are in place
to compensate passengers in the event of an accident. The level of coverage
that is available from your own insurance provider will depend on your
policy. Or, if the other driver was at fault, you may be able to file
a claim with their insurance company. With any insurance policy, it is
possible that your claim could be denied. Our Corpus Christi Uber and
Lyft accident lawyers are committed to protecting your rights during compensation

Your path to receiving compensation will depend on the circumstances of
