What You Need To Know About Uber And Lyft Accidents

Tourism in Florida is always booming. As an enterprising and resourceful state, our citizens are opting more and more to participate in ride-sharing companies, either as drivers or as riders.

What Makes Uber And Lyft Accidents Complicated

Not all accidents in cars can be treated like a normal car accident. When ride-sharing companies are involved, there are many more considerations. For instance:

  • Who is at fault for the accident?
  • Do both/all drivers have insurance?
  • Does the ride-sharing driver have supplemental insurance through the company?
  • If you are driving, do you qualify for workers' compensation?
  • Are you from the area or are you visiting?
  • Were all the Florida ride-sharing laws followed?

When you navigate these questions properly, you can maximize your compensation and can make sure that your settlements account for all your medical care, your time off work and other relevant expenses. Our lawyers provide you high-quality legal aid to accomplish this goal.
