Uber and Lyft Accidents Injury Lawyer

Rideshare options like Uber and Lyft have changed the way people travel. There are more options than ever when you need transportation, whether you need a ride home after a night out or a lift to the airport. When you use a rideshare option, you are trusting another driver to keep you safe during your trip. If a vehicle accident occurs during your ride and you are injured, it is important to know what the options are to obtain compensation to cover injuries.

Florida Regulations for Rideshare Auto Insurance

Florida requires that all drivers have liability insurance to legally drive. For those who work for Uber, Lyft or other rideshare companies, there are higher insurance expectations. In 2017, Florida revised the law regarding insurance coverage to ensure that rideshare drivers are required to carry at least $1 million in liability coverage for death, bodily injury and property damage while providing a ride. This can be shared between the driver and the rideshare company, but the total coverage must meet these requirements.

Who Is Liable for Injuries in a Rideshare Accident?

If you hire an Uber or Lyft driver to give you a ride and are injured in a crash during the trip, you have several options when it comes to claiming liability. If another vehicle and driver were involved or at fault in the accident, a claim may be made against that driver. If the rideshare driver was at fault, as a rider, you can pursue a claim against them and possibly the parent company. However, if you are driving your own vehicle and are hit by an Uber or Lyft driver, you can also file a claim against the driver’s insurance and possibly the contracting company.

While using a rideshare service is as easy as swiping your cell phone screen, pursuing a claim for injuries caused by a rideshare driver is not as simple. These injury cases can be complex, but there are options to seek compensation for your injuries.

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
