There are few things more devastating than being involved in a motor vehicle collision, especially when you had nothing to do with causing it. Whether you were hurt in an Uber crash as a passenger or as another motorist, our Houston, Texas auto accident lawyer is here to help.

Determining Liability After an Uber Crash

Uber drivers are only human, and because of this, Uber has a liability coverage system in place for Uber drivers who cause collisions and injure others. That said, the circumstances of any given incident with an Uber driver will largely influence the amount of coverage that Uber will provide. For example, in most cases, when an Uber driver who is not yet logged into the app and hasn’t accepted a ride crashes and injures another, Uber won’t provide liability coverage, and the injured party will have to sue the driver’s private insurance company.

That said, there are certain “periods” for Uber accidents, and as they progress, Uber will provide injured motorists and passengers with more liability coverage. For example, Uber’s coverage differs depending on whether the Uber driver was logged in but had not yet accepted a passenger, was en route to pick up a passenger, or was driving with a passenger in their car at the time of the incident.

No matter the circumstances of your injury, White Personal Injury is prepared to fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

Statute of Limitations

After sustaining an injury in an Uber crash, you’re required to file a lawsuit against the party at fault within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims here in Texas is, typically, two years. In most cases, you can no longer file a personal injury claim after the statute of limitations has expired.
