Compensation You Can Recover After a Serious Injury in a Houston Lyft Accident

If you have been hurt in a Lyft crash in Houston, you could face several forms of debilitating injuries and losses. At Domingo Garcia, we promise that we will work hard to get all the compensation you deserve.

The types of monetary damages we can pursue for you, however, will depend on your circumstances. Our Houston car accident attorneys will investigate your case and determine what losses you can recover.

Here are some of the common categories of money damages that you could pursue in these cases:

  • Past and future lost wages. Lost wages cover the period from the moment of the collision until you can return to work. Future lost wages address your losses if you cannot earn as much money as before the accident.  
  • Past and future medical expenses. Your medical care includes the treatment you needed for your injuries. Future medical expenses will account for any treatments or procedures you may need in the future. 
  • Intangible losses. These damages encompass a wide range of losses that usually do not have concrete dollar amounts. Intangible losses include pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, impairment, and lost quality of life. 
  • Wrongful death-related damages. When someone passes away because of the injuries they suffered in a Houston Lyft collision, their close relatives (wife, children, and parents) may qualify for compensation. Domingo Garcia has handled numerous wrongful death lawsuits against Lyft and other rideshare companies.

Our accident lawyers know how to pursue the compensation you need and deserve. We have a track record of winning six- and seven-figure results, including $3 million for a motorcycle crash involving a commercial vehicle and multiple $1 million recoveries against Lyft and other rideshare companies.

While we can’t guarantee a certain outcome, we can review your case’s facts and explain what damages you can recover.

We Handle Insurance Issues in Houston Rideshare Crash Claims

In a typical car accident, people who get injured can file a claim with the liable insurance carrier, seeking monetary damages for their injuries and other losses. Rideshare accidents, on the other hand, involve the possibility of more than one insurance policy.

The Lyft rideshare driver should have a personal automobile liability insurance policy. Also, Lyft provides some liability insurance in certain situations. The policy that applies will depend on the facts of your individual case.

Here’s what to know:

  • If the crash happened when the Lyft rideshare driver was not working, Lyft’s liability policy will likely not cover the accident. “Not working” means that the Lyft driver had the Lyft app turned off and was not waiting for a ride request, picking up a passenger, or transporting a passenger during a ride.
  • If the collision occurred when the rideshare driver was picking up a passenger or transporting a passenger during a ride, Lyft’s liability insurance coverage will likely cover the accident.
  • The more complex situation is when the Lyft rideshare driver had the app on but was waiting for a ride request. In this instance, if the rideshare driver’s personal automobile liability insurance policy does not cover a claim, Lyft’s liability coverage will apply.

Insurance matters can get complicated in rideshare accident cases. Domingo Garcia will be happy to answer your questions about liability insurance as they apply to your claim.

Whether you were a rideshare driver, passenger, or another third party who was not in the rideshare vehicle, Domingo Garcia wants to help you. You can leave all insurance-related matters to us.

How Much Can Accident Victims Recover for Their Losses?

Every case is different and therefore comes with its own set of recoverable damages. how much your case is worth depends on the condition you suffered, its severity, and its effect on your life. We also consider your lost income and pain and suffering when determining a fair settlement amount.
