What are My Recovery Options After Being Injured in a Rideshare Accident in Beaumont, Texas?

Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft can be held liable for Beaumont accidents and injury claims under certain circumstances, primarily depending on the driver’s status at the time of the accident.

If the rideshare driver’s negligence, like reckless driving, running a red light, or distracted driving, caused the accident, the company may be liable for the driver’s actions based on the driver’s status at the time of the crash.

That includes:

  • Offline: The driver is not logged into the ridesharing app and is not accepting ride requests. During this period, the driver’s personal auto insurance policy applies, and the rideshare company is generally not liable for accidents.
  • Available but Unmatched: The driver is logged into the ridesharing app and can accept ride requests but has not yet been matched with a passenger. Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft provide limited liability coverage during this period, typically up to $100,000.
  • En Route or Transporting Passenger: The driver is en route to pick up a passenger or has a passenger in the vehicle. Rideshare companies typically provide higher levels of liability coverage during this period, up to $1 million.

Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft are required to provide insurance coverage for their drivers and passengers. If the accident occurred while the driver was in the course and scope of their employment with the rideshare company, its insurance coverage may apply to compensate for injuries and damages.

In addition, rideshare companies have a duty to exercise reasonable care in hiring their drivers. If a rideshare company hires a driver with a history of reckless driving, and an accident occurs as a result, the company may be held liable for negligent hiring or training.
