In an Accident as a Passenger of a Rideshare Service?

If you are injured in a vehicle accident while a rideshare company like Uber or Lyft is the driver in Florida, then you should be aware of a few legal considerations.

  • The responsible driver’s insurance company will be liable for compensating injured parties.
  • The rideshare company can also provide compensation for injuries and damages based on the policy limits.
  • Florida is a no-fault state. Therefore, personal injury protection coverage (PIP) should cover you regardless of who was at fault.
  • As of 2022, Uber or Lyft will cover up to $100,000 in bodily injury per accident (maximum $50,000 per person) and $25,000 for property damage.
  • Rideshare companies and their drivers must carry liability insurance that covers passengers and others in the event of an accident.
  • You have up to two years from the date of the car accident to file a claim against the at-fault driver and their insurance company.

The best way to ensure you receive compensation is to contact a personal injury attorney immediately after an accident. You have the right to hold the responsible party legally liable for your injuries and other damages, including pain and suffering. Contact our office today and learn more about your options.
