Uber And Lyft Crashes

When you need to get from here to there in Austin, the public transportation options have grown from public buses and taxis to include popular alternatives such as Uber and Lyft drivers.

Ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft are permitted by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Local, state and national criminal background checks are ordinarily conducted on drivers of public use vehicles.

Were you injured in an Uber accident? Public use vehicles have a duty to transport their riders free from harm and if they do not, they can be held liable for the harm and injuries they cause.

Contact Vasquez Law Firm to help you investigate whether your driver was negligent behind the wheel when they were:

  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on the cellphone
  • Driving while under the influence of prescription drugs
  • Driving with inadequate sleep

Attorney Scott S. Vasquez has the knowledge and resources to help you negotiate with insurance companies, as well as represent you in court with a solid case to get the maximum compensation you deserve.
