Uber / Lyft Accident Attorney in Fort Lauderdale
Speak with a Fort Lauderdale Car Accident Lawyer Today
Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft have become very popular in recent
years as an easy and convenient way to get a ride. However, as with any
taxi or ride-sharing service, there is an element of risk involved in
accepting a ride from someone when you are unfamiliar with his or her
driving abilities. If you were involved in an accident with a ride-share
driver, would you know who would be responsible for paying damages? Would
you know how, and with whom, to file a claim?

What Makes an Uber Accident Different?
Accidents with rideshare drivers are very different from a typical car
accident due to the following:
- Ride-sharing drivers rely on GPS navigation applications that can take
their focus off the road, which increases the likelihood of an accident.
- Just about anyone with a car, a driver’s license, and auto insurance
can become a ride-share driver. This means that you may be transported
by someone with little to no experience driving passengers around for
hours at a time.
- There are differences in insurance coverage as well. Drivers carry two
types of auto insurance when working for a rideshare service: their personal
insurance, for off-duty use, and additional liability coverage that may
be activated when the Uber/Lyft app is turned on or while you are a passenger
in the vehicle. It is critical to work with a lawyer who can ensure that
your claim(s) are submitted to the appropriate insurance carriers in a
timely manner to maximize your chances of a fair payout.
