We know that you’ve heard of Uber by now. The popular ridesharing service has changed the transportation industry over the last few years. Where before most people would call a taxi when they needed a lift somewhere, now many are opening an app on their phone, pressing a few buttons, and waiting for their ride to show up.
We’ve become accustomed to riding around in someone’s personal vehicle, an idea that would have seemed crazy not so long ago.
But have you thought about what would happen if an Uber driver causes an accident and you get hurt?
If that has happened to you and you need an Uber accident attorney in Dallas, turn to the most experienced car accident attorney around. The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde has a team of experienced professionals ready to take your case.
Sometimes you don’t feel like driving, so calling an Uber may be your thought. Whether you need a quick ride to the grocery store or you need to call a designated driver after a night out, the convenience is appealing.
Think about this for a minute though – almost anyone can become an Uber driver. All someone needs is a vehicle that is 15-years-old or newer and has four doors, a valid license and insurance, and a clear background. Drivers have to be 21 or older, but certain food delivery programs allow drivers to be younger than that.
With all those vehicles with little “U” stickers in the windshield, accidents are bound to happen.
There have been multiple cases in the United States of Uber drivers driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. There have also been Uber accidents caused by drivers who were distracted by their phones. This type of reckless behavior puts people at risk. Not only could they injure their passengers, but also people in other vehicles, as well as pedestrians.
A vehicle accident can cause serious injuries that can lead to you enduring pain and suffering, not to mention high medical bills. If you have to miss work because of an Uber accident, your financial livelihood could be at risk.
We know that Uber has massive insurance policies that cover a wide range of accidents. The insurance covers incidents that happen both when a driver has passengers as well as when they are driving to or awaiting a fare.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
This past summer, council members from the City of Dallas gave the green light to rental scooters in the city. With rental scooters beginning to share the roads with cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, and motorcycles, attorneys say Texas laws are not quite prepared for accidents involving rental scooters. As evident from the experience of several […]
Buses are an excellent resource for Dallas residents. They offer a cheap alternative to get around town without much hassle. In fact, an estimated 250,000 people will ride Dallas’s public transportation system every day. However, for as convenient as they are, buses can also be very dangerous because they are large vehicles that are difficult […]
Certain dog breeds are very frightening to look at, let alone be attacked by. When you see a dog of a dangerous breed, be it the pit bull or Rottweiler, on a leash with its dog owner, you have at least some sort of reassurance that the dog might not be able to bite you […]
Some might say that it is impossible to stay concentrated on driving at all times. There is always something that distracts you to a certain degree. A stunning woman in a mini-dress crossing the road. A car accident that you pass by. But more often, a notification on your phone. More than 92 percent of […]
The aftermath of a car accident is often confusing and stressful, making the process of determining who was at fault difficult. It’s made even more difficult when you realize that fault is determined separately by insurance companies, law enforcement agencies, and courts of law. If you believe the other driver was negligent and caused the […]
