We Can Help With Complex Insurance Issues
Our office understands how the insurance industry works. In Texas, anytime a driver’s rideshare app is active, the ride-share companies like Uber and Lyft must carry insurance for their drivers over and above the regular car insurance the independent drivers carry.
We can help determine to what extent the driver’s insurance will cover your damages, and if you should pursue a claim against the company. Gathering evidence to show that the driver’s app was engaged at the time of the accident can be a tricky situation. You will need an experienced attorney building your case and making sure you receive the damages you are entitled to.
What About Other Commercial Vehicle Accidents?
Other commercial drivers also involve complicated liability questions. They may be independent drivers, or they may work for a company that has separate insurance for them. Depending on the size of the vehicle, the accident may have caused significant damage and injuries. Accidents involving large trucks can cause catastrophic injuries or even death.
You should always have a skilled attorney helping you with these companies. They have their own legal teams prepared to defend their company. You need your own legal team fighting for your legal rights.
