Ordering a ride through through a ridesharing app such Lyft or Uber is easy, but if you get injured in a car accident with a rideshare, getting compensation for your damages can be very difficult. Rideshare drivers are considered independent contractors of the company. That means they may NOT be covered under the insurance policies of the companies they drive for. This will lead to confusion and finger pointing over responsibility. Your simple claim has now turned into a complicated, legal tug of war. Nobody wants to deal with that if they’ve been injured in a car accident.
As Rideshare apps have gained popularity, the number of accidents involving companies such as Uber and Lyft has increased dramatically. If you’re in an accident as a passenger in a rideshare, whose insurance is covering you? What if you’re involved in a wreck with someone who’s driving a Rideshare? We’ve represented many clients in similar situations in South Florida so we know how to get you the compensation you deserve.
