Uber/Lyft Accident Help from Offices in Lakeland & Tampa, FL

Ridesharing is convenient and relatively affordable, becoming more and more popular among Florida residents and visitors alike. Unfortunately, it can present come difficulties if an accident occurs.

Factors to Consider: Rideshare Accident Insurance Coverage

Florida is a no-fault auto insurance state, meaning you would most likely pursue compensation from your own personal injury protection (PIP) coverage if you are injured in an auto accident. But what happens if you are in an Uber or Lyft? As a driver or passenger, specific factors must be considered to determine whether your insurance policy or the rideshare company’s insurance policy comes into play.

These factors include:

  • When the accident occurred, such as whether the app was on and if the ride had started, as opposed to times when a driver is waiting to be pinged.
  • Who caused the collision, such as another driver or perhaps a third party, such as the manufacturer of an auto part.
  • The level of driver, such as an UberX driver, as opposed to an Uber Select driver.
  • Whether you sustained permanent injuries and can pursue a third-party insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit.

Carefully considering your accident from every angle, the team at Dismuke Law can determine exactly who is to blame and how to pursue maximum compensation – from all potential sources.
