Our Team Can Handle Complicated Lawsuits
As you might expect, Texas’ law regarding timeshare driving is complicated. Because Uber and Lyft drivers are independent contractors – and not employees of their company, the rules governing compensation can get tricky. For example, Texas uses a concept called modified comparative fault to establish fault in lawsuits. So, if you were in a rideshare drivers’ vehicle and distracted the driver, you might not be eligible for benefits. There are other challenging aspects, including car-to-car accidents with Uber drivers who are off duty and those waiting for a ride request. We can sort out the problems and get to the bottom of the situation.
We Incorporate Our Extensive Experience Into Every Case
Our ability to litigate Uber and Lyft accidents partially stems from our extensive experience in other practice areas. For example, we have represented clients who suffered a brain or spinal cord injury in a car accident. And our team understands how to litigate cases where an SUV or truck blew a tired and rolled over. Pedestrian and bicycle accidents are nothing new to us. All of these situations can intermingle with handling an Uber or Lyft lawsuit, which is why it is so important to trust a legal team with experience handling a broad array of situations successfully.
