VICTIM OF A RIDESHARE ACCIDENT?

Over the past decade, rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have taken over a huge role in the transportation industry. Most people do not consider what happens if an accident occurs while they are a passenger in one.

Rideshares occupy a unique position between private vehicles, taxis and limos, where liability issues are more complex. These cases typically involve multiple insurance coverages:​

1

RIDESHARE DRIVER'S INSURANCE

2

OTHER DRIVER'S INSURANCE

3

RIDESHARE CORPORATE INSURANCE

4

YOUR OWN
INSURANCE

ACCIDENT CHALLENGES

If you are a passenger in a rideshare crash, it can be very cumbersome to communicate with the various insurance companies. This aspect adds a layer of complexity to the case and typically requires proper legal representation to help navigate the process and to obtain fair and adequate compensation for your injuries, lost income, and other damages.

​We have a history of:

  • Standing up to large corporations, such as Uber and Lyft, and their insurance companies

  • Balancing communication and case processes with multiple crash stakeholders

  • Navigating the different layers of insurance coverage and identifying who is at fault 

RENTAL CAR

 

VICTIM OF A RENTAL CAR ACCIDENT?

Florida is a destination where people from around the world travel for vacation, work and seasonal residency. As a result, Florida roadways are often congested with rental cars operated by drivers who are unfamiliar with Florida’s roads, with Florida’s traffic laws, and with the cars they are driving. Rental cars also present unique insurance challenges in which state and federal law often intersect.

ACCIDENT CHALLENGES

What do you do when an out-of-state or foreign driver causes you or your loved ones harm on the Florida roadway? What happens when they are not the owners of the vehicle? How do you seek legal action to recover damages? Let our attorneys handle these complex questions for you, while you and your family focus on healing and getting back to normal life.

  • Out-of-state drivers 

  • Foreign and international drivers

  • Vacationers and seasonal residents

  • Inadequate or lack of insurance coverage 

  • Language barriers

  • Failure to elect rental insurance coverage
