Injured in a ridesharing accident? Call Miami Uber & Lyft accident injury lawyers now!
When you trusted Uber or Lyft with your safety and were seriously hurt in a crash, The Florida Law Group can fight for you to recover the maximum compensation you deserve!
Ridesharing giants like Uber & Lyft are extremely popular in large cities, especially large party cities like Miami, where the traffic and parking situations drive many to a more convenient method of transportation. “Ubering” is how many in Miami get places in the city, especially at night while hopping from scene to scene. These services are often thought of as safe, but while they have claimed to reduce the amount of drunk driving accidents and deaths, Uber & Lyft drivers aren’t professionals, and no vehicle is immune from the possibility of a crash. Recent research has shown that because there are so many Uber & Lyft vehicles on the road, traffic and ridesharing deaths are actually increasing.
If you’ve been injured in a collision involving an Uber or Lyft vehicle, you’re not alone, and you do have legal rights! You can take legal action against the party responsible in order to get paid for your injuries, but doing so can be confusing, and ridesharing lawsuits can be particularly complex. Our experienced Uber & Lyft accident injury lawyers have recovered over $1 billion for injured victims. We will help you understand your rights and options, investigate the crash, collect evidence, make a strong case for compensation, and guide you every step of the way! Our elite team is dedicated to winning. We’re so confident in our abilities to recover compensation for you that we only charge legal fees if we win. Call today to schedule your FREE consultation!
What our Uber & Lyft accident injury lawyers can do for you
Being injured in any type of car accident can be a devastating and expensive life experience. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may have to pay for costly medical bills related to ambulatory transport, imaging tests like CT scans and MRIs, surgeries, hospitalization, medications, medical devices, physical therapy, chiropractic care, copays, deductibles, and more. At the same time that you are facing these expenses, you may have to take weeks or even months off of work so you can heal, missing out on lost wages or overtime pay you otherwise would have earned; you may become permanently disabled and be unable to work ever again. All of this can add up to be tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the total cost of your injuries is even more than just economical.
If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to bear the resulting financial burden alone. Unfortunately, when you incurred these costs due to an Uber/Lyft crash, getting paid the amount that your injuries are actually worth is challenging for a few reasons. Firstly, it can be hard to determine who is at fault. Uber and Lyft themselves will rarely be named the negligent party unless it can be proved that they engaged in negligence when background checking the driver or inspecting the vehicle, for example. Most of the time, it is the driver who will be held responsible. Rideshare drivers are not legally considered employees of the ridesharing company; they are independent contractors, and they do carry up to $1 million in liability insurance coverage. However, where you are in relation to the driver at the time of the crash will affect how much of that coverage you can recieve, and their insurance company will do everything in their power to avoid paying you the full amount that you deserve in order to protect their bottom line.
