Dallas, TX / March 6, 2019 / -- Herbert Law Group, a respected team of legal professionals serving the greater Dallas area, has announced a new addition to their personal injury law blog. With their new release, Herbert Law Group brings attention to the rise in the use of rideshare programs and what steps a person should take if they find themselves involved in an accident while using services such as Uber or Lyft.
“Rideshare options have grown increasingly popular in recent years, with millions using these services every day,” stated Dallas car wreck lawyer Zachary Herbert, Attorney of Herbert Law Group. “In the majority of cases, rideshare services provide safe, enjoyable and uneventful transportation. However, accidents can occur and it’s important that passengers know how to react when involved in a Lyft or Uber accident.”
Because rideshare services are relatively new, there is plenty of room for confusion around who is liable and what protections a passenger has during the event of an accident. In their recent blog titled, "Dallas Personal Injury Attorney Explains Uber Accidents," Herbert Law Groups aims to help the public understand what their very first steps should be when they’re involved in a rideshare accident.
“Of course, safety is always the number one priority in any type of accident,” added Herbert. “We urge rideshare passengers to contact 911 immediately, even if an accident appears to be relatively minor. Because they may be protecting their own best interests, a rideshare driver might not take the initiative to do this on their own.”
Major rideshare services, such as Uber and Lyft, provide a certain amount of coverage for accidents. However, it is often the case that it is either required or strongly suggested that drivers carry their own additional coverage. Standard auto insurance policies do not cover damages while using a vehicle for work with a rideshare service, which can mean some drivers may lack the coverage they need.
As is the case with any other type of automobile accident, those who are involved in Uber or Lyft accidents in Dallas may be entitled to compensation for medical damages along with pain and suffering. If you’ve been injured in a rideshare accident, Herbert Law Group encourages you to contact them for a consultation. You can also learn more about protecting yourself after you’ve been involved in a rideshare accident and other important personal injury law topics on their website blog.
