Houston Rideshare & Delivery Accident Attorneys

Houston Rideshare & Delivery Accident Attorneys

Ridesharing and food delivery are convenient services of modern times that have changed the ways people travel, shop, dine, and earn a living. While both rideshare and food delivery services can have various benefits for consumers and drivers, these services can also present some difficulties, especially when rideshare or delivery drivers are involved in crashes.

The Houston attorneys at the Amaro Law Firm have a deep understanding of these difficulties, how to overcome them, and how to advocate accident victims’ rights when it is time to seek financial recovery. Relentless and strategic, our lawyers can provide you with unparalleled representation – and help you maximize your recovery – if you have been harmed in a rideshare crash or a delivery car accident.

Uber Accidents

Uber accidents can occur when drivers are offline (i.e., not logged onto the Uber app) or online (i.e., logged onto the app). When these crashes occur during the online period, the Uber driver’s status at the time of the accident will impact the insurance coverage that applies and, namely, whether the personal auto insurance policy and/or Uber’s insurance provides coverage.

While Uber’s insurer (the James River Insurance Company) provides coverage when drivers are transporting riders, there can be a gap in coverage when drivers are using the rideshare app and they are:

Waiting for a ride request

Traveling to pick up a rider after accepting a ride request

Insurance companies can leverage these coverage gaps to avoid paying valid Uber accident claims. This can present challenges for Uber car accident victims seeking compensation for their crash-related injuries and losses.

Uber & Lyft Sexual Assaults
GrubHub Delivery Accidents
Instacart Delivery Accidents

Like GrubHub, Instacart is a food delivery service that relies on drivers, who are independent contractors, to transport products from local grocers and retailers to customers’ front doors. Also like GrubHub, Instacart does NOT provide auto insurance coverage for its drivers (who the company refers to as “full-service shoppers”).

Instead, Instacart requires drivers to take out and maintain their own personal auto insurance policy that, at least, meets the minimum coverage required by state law.

Again, this can create a coverage gap if a crash occurs during the course of a delivery, making it particularly challenging for accident victims to know and pursue their recovery option(s).
