Financial Recovery Based on Your Specific Expenses and Losses

Recovery Includes Current and Future Economic Damages
The financial recovery following a rideshare collision could include a wide range of current and future expenses and losses. We provide evidence to support your claim and seek damages for:
- Medical treatment and related costs
- Future care needs
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
We Seek Non-Economic Damages for Our Clients, Too
In addition to recovery of the expenses and losses incurred because of your accident, we may be able to seek damages for your intangible losses, as well. This centers primarily on the pain and suffering you endured due to your accident and treatment.
You may also recover other non-economic damages, such as the loss of quality of life or enjoyment in certain activities.

Rideshare Companies Provide Large Liability Policies for Drivers
When Uber and Lyft first began, there were many concerns about how insurance coverage would work. Some victims struggled to get the financial recovery they needed because the drivers’ insurers refused to pay, claiming the rideshare driver’s policy was not meant for a professional driver.
Ridesharing companies then began offering additional liability coverage for their contracted drivers.
Today, rideshare companies provide at least $1 million liability coverage during some parts of the driver’s work, according to Uber and Lyft. This includes when the driver:
- Matches with a rider
- Goes to pick up a rider
- Has a rider in their vehicle
We Can Determine What Coverage Applies in Your Accident
The rideshare company’s insurer also provides contingency coverage at other times when the driver is signed into the company’s app but is not yet matched with a rider. The driver’s own policy provides the primary coverage during this time.
While it may seem clear-cut which policy is in effect during a collision—especially if you were in the Lyft or Uber at the time—it is not always easy to take the steps to seek a financial recovery.
D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ is Here for You After Your Fort Worth Accident. We Will:
- Identify where the driver was in the cycle at the time of the accident
- Determine which insurance policy was in effect
- Investigate your accident, proving liability and your damages
- File your claim and seek the financial recovery you need to pay your bills
We know how these cases work and how to show the insurer the value of your case. We may be able to secure your recovery without needing to file a lawsuit or go to trial. With $1 million in insurance coverage in many potential accident scenarios, all but the most serious injuries will likely fall under the policy limits.
Deadlines Apply—Reach Out for Your Case Evaluation As Soon As Possible
Under Texas law, most people injured in collisions only have two years to decide if they need to sue the at-fault driver or another party. While this is not always necessary, we need to ensure we can secure a financial recovery for you before this deadline arrives.
Some cases have shorter deadlines because there are some exceptions to this statute of limitations. Let D. Miller & Associates, PLLC™ discuss your case with you today for free. We will evaluate your options and explain your next steps.
