Renowned Personal Injury Representation & Counsel
Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are popular in Orlando, and it's easy to understand why. It's convenient, quick, and cost-effective for those needing transportation around the city. Unfortunately, more rideshare vehicles on the road also means more accidents and catastrophic injuries. But when someone is injured in an accident involving a rideshare vehicle, their options for compensation are much different than if the accident involved two private parties.
What Damages Can I Be Compensated for If I’m Injured in a Rideshare Accident?
Whether you were the rideshare driver or passenger in an accident, your right to damages will depend on many factors. Responsibility for your injuries or property damage can depend on a number of factors, including when the accident occurred, who was at fault, and whether your rideshare driver had active driver coverage in place. And unfortunately, insurance companies, even those that provide rideshare drivers with coverage, are not always easy to work with.
If you were injured in a rideshare accident and want to learn more about who is liable for the injuries and damages, then please contact our personal injury attorneys at the Sekou Clarke Law Group so we can discuss all of your options under the law.
Our lawyers have years of experience handling rideshare accidents. We have seen your case from all sides, and we can offer the specific advice you need for your personal situation – whether you are a rideshare driver or passenger.
What If I’m a Rideshare Driver?
When driving with rideshare services like Uber and Lyft, your insurance coverage is contingent on where you are in the journey. If you’re not yet on your way to pick up a passenger, or have dropped a passenger off and are waiting for another to request your services, you’re covered by your personal insurance.
But as soon as you turn the rideshare app on to start looking for a passenger ride request to accept, your rideshare provider insurance kicks in and provides you with at least $50,000 in physical injury or death liability coverage and $25,000 for property damage.
Once the rideshare driver accepts a ride request, the rideshare company provided insurance coverage increases to $1 million. If you collide with someone else while transporting a passenger—or while on your way to pick up a fare—this policy covers damage done to other people and their property.
