Instead of hailing a cab with your thumb in the air, people are getting a Lyft with their thumbs in a different fashion in the last few years. Hailing rides has become far easier and more convenient for people. Without needing to step outside of the bar, home, or wherever else you may be, you can quickly tap to get a ride to wherever you need to get to next.
Lyft, the popular ridesharing app, allows young adults to get everywhere safely so the party never has to stop on a Friday night. The party gets cut short in the event of an accident. The night no longer consists of a fun worry-free eventful evening, it becomes a nightmare that can only get worse if you are unprepared and alone on the ensuing journey that follows you after a Lyft accident in Dallas.
After the accident, you will more than likely not feel right or feel like yourself. It is important to get your injuries seen and treated by a medical professional immediately. Even if you had to leave the scene of the accident, you can hire our Dallas car accident lawyers to help you receive the proper compensation for your injuries from the negligent party.
You Were in a Lyft Accident. What’s Next?
After your Lyft accident in Dallas, certain things need to occur for you to receive your rightful payout. Following the laws, Texas has put in place for ridesharing companies and their drivers they consider as general contractors. This means the drivers for Lyft are not actually employees of Lyft. So who is going to help pay for your medical bills after your car accident if Lyft is not bound by law to do so?
This is why the Texas legislation has put in place a TNC mandatory insurance policy holding law for all ridesharing contractors. To legally work on behalf of Lyft, a driver must have a higher minimum for insurance than what normal Texas state insurance maximum thresholds consists of, for your safety. This insurance turns on as soon as the driver turns on the Lyft app.
When your driver is at fault for the accident, their insurance is the one to hold responsible for your medical bills, suffering, and anguish. If another car outside of the Lyft driving network gets into an accident with your driver and you, the other car owner’s insurance is the responsible party for compensating you. Our attorneys are extremely familiar with how to pursue the proper insurance company from the beginning of the case. This means we will never waste any time pursuing the impossible, and we will never make any costly mistakes on behalf of your rightful injury claim.
