Rideshare Accident Lawyers Serving Austin, TX
After an Uber or Lyft Accident, You Have Rights
In recent years, rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have taken the entire country by storm. They offer a convenient, inexpensive method of transportation for people across the U.S., and virtually anyone can become a rideshare driver, earning extra spending money or even using fares to make a living. With this increase in rideshare usage, however, has come an increase in collisions – and the question of liability for injured passengers’ medical bills is a hotly contested topic.
Rideshare companies have come under scrutiny not only for potentially negligent driver screening practices, but also for possible lapses in insurance coverage for passengers. With these complications in mind, it is important to work with an Austin car accident attorney who understands the specific issues that apply to rideshare accidents. At the Lowenberg & Kumar Law Firm, we know the law and apply it to protect our clients’ rights in Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare collisions.

Insurance Coverage for Rideshare Accidents
In a rideshare accident, there may be various sources of compensation available to an injured passenger. Our Austin rideshare accident lawyers take all of these into account, including:
- The rideshare driver’s insurance policy
- The rideshare company’s insurance policy
- The passenger’s insurance policy
Uber has a $1 million policy in place to cover any damages that a driver’s insurance policy cannot cover. Lyft and Sidecar have similar policies. By evaluating your case and looking to all potential sources of compensation, our goal will be to recover the highest possible settlement or award on your behalf. This is necessary if you are to receive the money you need to cover all of your medical bills, ongoing treatment, lost earnings, loss of future earnings, and more.
