El Paso Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyer

Texas Law Firm for Rideshare Injuries

One of the reasons people may use a rideshare service is for safety. It can be safer to be driven directly to your destination than to use public transportation or to walk. In addition, calling for an Uber or Lyft is safer than driving yourself home from an event where you have been drinking. Sadly, many rideshare passengers do not make it safely to their destination due to the carelessness of their Uber or Lyft driver. If you are injured while using a rideshare service, you may be entitled to compensation.

The Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC fights for those who have been injured in rideshares. Whether your accident was the fault of your driver or another driver on the road, you are likely entitled to compensation for your injuries and any associated losses. Our goal is to restore you to the position you were in before the accident to the fullest extent possible. For some, this means recovering medical expenses and a limited period of lost wages. For others, this means much more.

El Paso Attorney for Holding Careless Drivers Responsible

The first step is determining who your claim is against. If your Uber or Lyft driver caused the accident, it is likely that the rideshare company or their insurance company is liable. Uber and Lyft both provide supplemental insurance coverage for their drivers, the same way Amazon does for its independent contractors.

If your injuries were caused by a third-party driver - someone you encountered on the road - then you will likely be able to proceed with a more traditional claim against that driver or their insurance policy.

This means that Cal will need to investigate carefully to prove which driver caused the accident - and how they were negligent in causing it. We can help with most accidents that occur while you are using a rideshare company, such as:

  • Distracted driver accidents - All drivers have a duty to keep their attention focused on the road. In today's busy world, drivers may attempt to use their cell phones for a variety of purposes rather than focusing on driving.
  • DWI crashes - Intoxicated drivers are everywhere. It matters little what time of day or night you are on the roads. These crashes can be destructive, as drunk drivers often fail to brake to mitigate the accident.
  • Accidents resulting from law-breaking - If the responsible driver broke a traffic law, and their decision to break the law led to your accident, there may be a legal shortcut called negligence per se available.

When you are using a rideshare service, the driver has a duty to drive using appropriate caution. When you are on the road, other drivers have a duty to drive carefully to avoid accidents. Regardless of who caused your rideshare crash, you can likely recover compensation.

Attorney for Full Compensation After an El Paso Area Rideshare Accident

The damage associated with a car accident, both economic and noneconomic, can be astronomical. Few people are prepared to handle the onslaught of medical bills while missing work due to their injuries. Fortunately, both your medical costs and your lost wages can be compensated.

All current and future medical costs are likely compensable, even if you will require long-term ongoing care. The same is true for lost wages. If you will continue to miss work for a long period of time, are no longer able to work, or must change careers, Cal may be able to help you recover the income you have lost and will lose.

The goal of compensation after a rideshare accident is to return you to the position you were in before the accident, at least from a financial perspective. You may be entitled to additional noneconomic damages, such as compensation for your pain and suffering.
