Were you riding in an Uber or Lyft when a crash left you injured?
If you or a loved one was seriously hurt in an Uber or Lyft accident in or near Tampa, you may be entitled to up to $1 million in compensation.
Uber and Lyft are popular ridesharing options, especially in such a crowded and lively city as Tampa, Florida. Ultimately, Uber and Lyft have contributed to the decrease in drunk driving accidents, and the drivers have to meet certain safety criteria before being hired, but this does not mean that Uber and Lyft vehicles are immune from collisions, or from legal consequences of negligence. If the carelessness of a driver caused you harm (either as a passenger, pedestrian, or driver of another vehicle), The Florida Law Group can help you fight for justice in the form of fair financial compensation.
Understanding liability in a Tampa Uber or Lyft accident case can be complicated. First, realize that rideshare drivers are not “employees” of the company, so for the rideshare company to be at fault, you would need to prove that Uber or Lyft itself engaged in negligence (failing to properly conduct background check or inspect vehicle, etc.). Most often, it is the driver of the ridesharing vehicle who will be found negligent. Florida has passed laws requiring that these drivers carry a minimum of $1 million in liability insurance coverage. This is used to pay out passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers for damages that result from accidents that occur when a driver is actively transporting a passenger or on their way to pick up a passenger. Depending on the severity of your injuries and/or damage to your vehicle, you can receive some or much of that amount. Contact us for a free case evaluation today!
