Thankfully, even if this was the case during your crash, you almost certainly have the ability to seek compensation for any injuries you sustained as a result of the accident. The experienced Texas legal team at The Law Office of John W. Shaw, PLLC is proud to represent the interests of rideshare passengers – rights which are too often overlooked.

Rideshare Passengers – Why You Need Legal Assistance in the Wake of a Crash
If you were hurt during your rideshare crash, there may be several insurance policies “at play” in your case. First, the rideshare company you were using (Uber, Lyft, etc.) has their own insurance policy that may owe you compensation, depending upon the unique details involved in your collision. Second, the insurance policy taken out by the driver of your vehicle may owe you compensation, depending upon whether the accident in question was the fault of your rideshare driver or a third-party. Third, you may be owed compensation by the insurance provider of any other motorists involved in the accident. Additionally, you may be in a position to file a personal injury lawsuit against the rideshare company, your rideshare driver, others involved in the crash, and even entities beyond those immediately involved in the collision. For example, if your accident was caused by an ill-maintained road, you may be able to sue the government tasked with maintaining that road. If your accident was caused (in-part or in-total) by a defective auto part, you may be able to sue the manufacturer of that auto part for damages.
Once our firm learns about the unique circumstances surrounding your crash, we’ll be able to assess which party or parties you can potentially hold accountable for the harm you have suffered. Even if you choose not to file formal legal action against those parties, we can assist you with ensuring that any insurance claims filed on your behalf in regards to your accident are paid out in a fair amount and in a timely manner.
