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.
