What to Do If You Are Injured in a Car Accident While Riding in an Uber or Lyft Vehicle in Florida


Ride sharing apps like Uber and Lyft are expanding in popularity and are used for transportation all over Tampa, Florida and the United States. With the increase in popularity, accidents occurring in Uber and Lyft vehicles are increasingly more common as well. Uber and Lyft rides are useful in preventing drunk driving or simply for convenience when your car is getting repaired or you are traveling. But what should you do if you find yourself injured in an accident while riding in an Uber or a Lyft?

 

If you were injured while riding in an Uber or a Lyft in Florida, Franco Law Group can potentially help you in obtaining the medical treatment, compensation or financial recovery you deserve. Lyft and Uber provide $1 million in liability coverage. If you are injured while riding in an Uber or Lyft, their liability insurance will pick up and cover the damages if the driver’s insurance policy rejects your claim. If you are hit by a Lyft or Uber driver, our personal injury attorneys can assist you in getting the necessary financial recovery against the insurance company for the injury and trauma that you received. Uber and Lyft drivers do not carry a commercial driver’s license, and the car accidents that involve ride-sharing vehicles require a clear understanding of personal injury law. At Franco Law Group we can help you determine your potential claims and benefits – whether you were injured while riding in an Uber or Lyft or if you were hit by an Uber or Lyft vehicle.

 

There are many ways to contact us; by phone, our website via email or web chat. We can schedule a meeting to go over all of your legal options. To make an inquiry or schedule a free consultation, please call (813) 873-0180 or visit our secure website at www.franco-law.com.
