Ridesharing is a popular method of transport, especially in places in the Tampa Bay Area like Largo, which is in between major cities. Uber and Lyft, the most popular ridesharing options, are often hailed as making the roads safer. It is true that they have decreased the amount of drunk driving accidents, and they require their drivers to meet specific safety criteria, but Uber and Lyft are not immune from the possibility of an accident (and indeed, these happen more often than you may think). They are also not immune from the legal consequences of negligence if their company or their drivers caused the accident and left someone else (a pedestrian, passenger, bicyclist, motorcyclist, or driver) injured.
However, proving liability in a Largo Uber or Lyft accident injury case can be incredibly complex. For one thing, rideshare drivers are not legally considered employees of the company – they are contractors. In order to prove that Uber or Lyft was themselves at fault, you would have to be able to prove that the company engaged in negligence by failing to properly inspect the vehicle or conduct a background check, etc. Most of the time, it will be the Uber or Lyft driver who is liable. These drivers carry a minimum of $1 million in liability insurance coverage under Florida law, and this amount is used to pay settlements for injured accident victims when the vehicle was actively engaged in rideshare transport at the time of the accident. Depending on how extensive your injuries are, you may be legally entitled to some or much of this amount, but recovering damages can be challenging.

The Florida Law Group’s Largo Uber and Lyft accident injury lawyers always advocate for maximum compensation.
Trust experienced rideshare accident injury attorneys who never let you settle for less than the full financial restitution you deserve
As with any car accident, injuries sustained in a Uber or Lyft crash can be potentially life-changing and debilitating, not to mention extremely expensive to treat. You may have to pay for costs associated with ambulatory care, hospitalization, imaging tests, surgeries, doctor visits, specialized care, medical devices, medications, and more. You may have to take significant time off work and be temporarily or permanently unable to participate in activities you regularly enjoy. In some cases, your injuries may never fully heal, and you may require lifelong care.
When an accident wasn’t your fault – especially if you trusted Uber and Lyft with your safety – you should not have to suffer in pain without monetary compensation. However, insurance companies will always attempt to devalue or discredit your claim and protect their bottom line, and Uber and Lyft have huge legal teams that will defend their actions.
