Rideshare services have exploded in popularity over the last decade. There are many rideshare vehicles in and around San Antonio, and it is inevitable that they will be involved in accidents. During the latest reporting year in Texas, there were more than 500,000 total vehicle accidents. In San Antonio, there were 42,043 accidents, more than 20,000 injuries, and 139 fatalities.
Rideshare accidents are often more complicated due to the varying layers of insurance coverage. If a rideshare driver gets into an accident when not signed into the rideshare app to work, then their personal insurance carrier is responsible for any damages.
If a rideshare driver is signed into the app to work but does not have a passenger, their personal carrier is still the primary coverage. The rideshare company’s carrier only kicks in if the personal carrier’s limits are exhausted.
If a rideshare driver has a passenger or is on the way to get one, the rideshare company’s insurance policy kicks in (this is typically a $1 million liability coverage).
If you or a loved one are injured in a rideshare accident that was caused by another person’s careless or negligent actions, seek legal assistance today. At the Villarreal & Begum Law Firm, we will explore all avenues of compensation and work to secure the following:
