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.
There is no denying that helmets save lives and prevent major injuries in motorcycle accidents, yet there is no requirement in Dallas that says motorcyclists must wear one. That may change. Texas Representative Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) has introduced a bill that would make helmet wearing a requirement for all motorcycle riders in the state. In […]
We expect our leaders to be responsible, examples that show the community the correct way to do things. That is why it has been so shocking to hear the Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder may have committed a crime. Last month, we learned that Felder was accused of hitting a teenager who was riding a scooter […]
In late February, a Dallas deputy was injured after a driver collided with two Dallas County police cars in a hit-and-run incident. The two police cars were blocking two lanes of traffic due to a stalled tractor-trailer. The 2005 Dodge truck struck both vehicles and then fled the scene. There was a deputy in each […]
Today, we want to bring you a story from a Houston hospital because it highlights a pattern of medical errors. At St. Luke’s Medical Center, a woman was given a blood transfusion last year. The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]
Dogs are beautiful but wild creatures. They have their own personalities and often will do all they can to protect their owners. However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
