Rideshare Accident Lawyer
Lyft and Uber are by and large, the two most well-known rideshare companies in the Central Florida area. Usage has skyrocketed over the last few years, and most people have at least heard of them, if not used them multiple times. It became particularly popular among the young adult crowd as they could go out for the evening without worrying about having a designated driver. However, in the past, there have been issues with the drivers not having adequate insurance covering themselves and their passengers in the event of an accident.
In the summer of 2017 a bill was passed targeting ridesharing services. The bill made it so that drivers would have to undergo criminal background checks and require that they carry a $1 million liability and uninsured motorist insurance policy. While the disputes due to inadequate coverage were guaranteed to go down, it’s not guaranteeing a payout to the victims. Insurance companies have a long history of training their adjusters to be negotiators who, more than often, end up low-balling claims and leaving the injured to fend for themselves.
If you were injured in an accident during a rideshare trip, they are equipped with enough insurance to handle your claim.
