Finally call us, to rapidly connect you to an attorney that specializes in Uber/Lyft accidents to begin working on your case to get you the most compensation obtainable.
Things to Know:
Unlike taxi companies, Uber and Lyft drivers use their own personal vehicles rather than commercial vehicles.
Florida Law requires coverage beyond the State standard insurance coverage for personal vehicles while logged into the ridesharing network and when providing a ride to a paying passenger.
As an Uber or Lyft driver, your ridesharing company (i.e., Uber or Lyft) is required to provide up to one million dollars in uninsured motor vehicle coverage while you are engaged in a ride and $50,000.00 in uninsured motor vehicle coverage when you are logged into the network, but not engaged in a ride. This will cover you in the event that you are injured due to the negligence of an uninsured driver or in a hit and run accident, which is not your fault.
