Injured In A Ridesharing Accident That Wasn’t Your Fault? The Aggressive Orlando Uber/Lyft Accident Lawyers At The Florida Law Group Can Stand Up For Your Rights & Fight For You To Receive Maximum Monetary Compensation!
In Orlando, one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world and one of the most populated metropolises in Florida, taking an Uber or Lyft to get from place to place is a popular form of transportation. Whether people need a ride to a business convention, to their hotel, to Disney or Universal or SeaWorld, to downtown, to a restaurant, or to visit friends and family in the suburbs, ridesharing is an attractive alternative to taking the bus. However, Uber & Lyft drivers aren’t professionals, and Uber and Lyft vehicles aren’t immune from the possibility of being involved in an accident.
Studies have shown that Uber and Lyft actually may be increasing the rate of accidents, injuries, and traffic accident deaths in big cities. If you were seriously hurt in a ridesharing accident with either of these companies that you trusted with your safety, you deserve to be fully compensated for all of the costs you incurred as a result of the collision. However, when Uber and Lyft are involved, it can be difficult to recover a fair settlement; there are a number of technicalities that can make it easier for the companies, the drivers, or the insurance companies to deny or devalue your claim. That’s why you need experienced Orlando Uber/Lyft accident lawyers on your side who can advocate for you to get paid!

Nuances Of Uber/Lyft Accident Injury Claims
Before you can pursue compensation for your injuries, you will first need to determine what parties are at fault. Unless Uber and Lyft (the companies themselves) can be found to be negligent – for example, if they didn’t background check the driver or inspect the vehicle thoroughly – the claim will likely need to be filed against the driver. It’s important to note that Uber and Lyft drivers are not employees of the companies. They are considered independent contractors, and they are required to carry $1 million in liability insurance coverage. This is money that is potentially accessible to you in a claim if you were a passenger or pedestrian hurt by their negligent actions. However, even if the driver was negligent, their insurance company is going to do everything in their power to avoid giving you an amount that accurately reflects how much your injuries are worth.
Our Orlando Uber/Lyft accident lawyers can investigate your case to find out who is responsible. We can answer your questions about other ways a ridesharing crash is different than a normal car crash, explain all of your legal rights and options, set realistic expectations, refer you to quality medical care or financial assistance (if needed), and relentlessly advocate for maximum compensation. We’re not afraid to go to trial if that’s what it takes to get you paid!
Types Of Damages Our Orlando Uber/Lyft Accident Lawyers Can Seek In A Settlement:
How much you can win in a settlement depends on many factors, including how much fault (if any) you shared for the crash, how extensive and permanent your injuries are, where you were in relation to the Uber/Lyft driver at the time of the collision, how much medical evidence there is for your claim, and more. Every case is different, but our attorneys can accurately value your injuries and ensure that you are paid for every dollar of medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering that the Uber or Lyft accident caused. Here are some of the categories where we may be able to recover damages for you!
- medical bills (for ambulatory transport, air transport, surgeries, hospitalization, imaging tests like X-rays and MRIs and CT scans, blood work, medical devices, medications, physical therapy, chiropractic care, copays, deductibles, counseling, etc.)
- lost wages (for any time you had to take off of work without pay as a result of the crash, including overtime pay that you would have otherwise earned)
- pain and suffering (for the mental and physical trauma associated with the accident – there is a way this amount can be quantified!)
- punitive damages (these are damages usually designed to make an example out of the bus driver or company that caused the crash, which may apply to Uber/Lyft depending on situation)
