Houston Uber Accident Lawyer – Injured at George Bush Intercontinental Airport
The George Bush Intercontinental Airport is located in Houston and serves the Greater Houston metropolitan area. It is located approximately 23 miles north of downtown Houston, between Interstate 69 and Interstate 45.
The airport schedules flights to many domestic destinations and is considered the second busiest airport in the State. In 2019 it served 45,264,059 passengers locking in a ranking as the 47th busiest airport in the world and the 14th busiest in the United States. This is a public airport and is owned by the City of Houston and is operated by Houston Airport System.
A busy airport means high traffic. This means an increased risk of a vehicle accident, one that could involve an Uber driver.
Uber ride-share drivers operate under three periods. During each of those periods, different insurance coverage is in play.
The three periods are:
First Period: The driver is waiting for a passenger with the Uber app on but does not have a ride request. If an accident occurs during this time, the Uber driver has ride-share insurance plus Uber coverage available. There is no comprehensive/collision coverage in period one.
Second Period: The driver has accepted a ride request and is on their way to pick up the passenger. Uber’s insurance does cover the driver, but there may be an issue if the ride is canceled before an accident. When the driver is online with a ride request but no passenger, it typically means Uber coverage is in play.
Third Period: A passenger is in the Uber, and they are heading to the destination. During this period, Uber’s insurance covers the driver because they are considered to be on the clock.
The attorneys at The de la Garza Law Group checks to see what period the Uber driver was in to determine the amount of insurance that may be available when it comes time to negotiate a settlement.

I would definitely use Mario again
Mario was very professional at all times. The one thing that made me at ease with him was that when I would text him, I would get a response every time within 10 minutes.or less. There was always an answer from him every time I had a question. I would definitely use Mario again if needed and would highly recommend him to someone else needing an attorney.

From our clients
We highly recommend this firm
On behalf of my family, we are extremely grateful to The de la Garza Law Group for all their legal assistance. One important factor for us was that this involved dealing with family where we all lived outside of Texas, which required consideration for numerous phone calls to different time zones to discuss the case.
