Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare options are often thought of as “safe” transportation. While they do cut down on the number of drunk driving deaths, they make the roads more crowded in large cities such as Tampa, and rideshare drivers aren’t professionals. These vehicles aren’t immune from the possibility of a crash; in fact, research has shown that traffic deaths that involve ridesharing services are actually increasing. If you trusted Uber and Lyft with your safety, and you were injured in an accident, The Florida Law Group’s North Tampa Uber/Lyft accident injury lawyers can fight to help you recover the maximum compensation you deserve.

When You Weren’t At Fault, You Shouldn’t Pay. Our Firm Can Make Sure You Won’t! Trust Us To Help You Get A Fair Settlement.

Depending on how serious your injuries are, you could face paying thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars because of someone else’s negligence. You may incur expenses related to:

  • ambulatory transport
  • imaging tests (X-rays, MRIs, etc.)
  • bloodwork & transfusions
  • surgeries
  • hospitalization
  • rehabilitation
  • chiropractic care
  • physical therapy
  • mental health counseling
  • medications
  • copays
  • deductibles
  • medical devices
  • specialized care
  • emergency dental work & subsequent dental care
  • lost wages (for the time you have to take off work while you heal)
  • and more.

The accident may leave you with permanent injuries, or permanently disabled, and needing to pay for lifelong care.

If you have health insurance, some of these costs may be covered, but not all or even most of them. You have a legal right to sue the responsible party in order to get them to cover the remainder of the costs. However, determining who to make a claim against can be difficult. Uber and Lyft drivers aren’t employees of the company – they are legally considered independent contractors – but they carry up to $1 million in liability coverage that can be paid out to victims of accidents that occurred when drivers were a) actively transporting passengers or b) on their way to pick up passengers. A $50,000 limit may apply if those were not the circumstances of the accident, but a rideshare driver was still involved. If the rideshare company itself engaged in negligence – that is, if the company failed to perform a proper background check or failed to inspect the vehicle thoroughly, for example – then the company may also be held liable.

Uber and Lyft as well as their drivers’ insurance companies lose money when they pay out claims to accident victims and have large legal teams to protect their bottom lines. That’s why you need a large, aggressive legal team on your side who can stand up to them and ensure that you get paid nothing less than what your injuries are worth! The Florida Law Group’s North Tampa Uber/Lyft accident injury lawyers will advocate for justice for you.
