Under Florida Law, a driver owes a passenger the duty of exercising ordinary or reasonable care to avoid injuring him or her. Therefore if you have been injured in an accident involving a LYFT, UBER, or any ride-sharing service, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.
Although, ridesharing services are convenient and a common solution to transportation dilemmas in today’s modern times, these ride-sharing services do have their pitfalls. Accidents do tend to occur seeing that Uber and Lyft employ amateur drivers using their own personal cars (which may be defective) to transport passengers to their destinations.
If you are involved in an Uber or Lyft accident, Contact the Bijoux Law Firm so we can explain to you your options. If the Uber/Lyft driver was found to be at fault you may be able to pursue the Lyft or Uber corporation. These Ridesharing companies are regulated by the state of Florida and are required to carry certain insurance for their drivers.
Uber or Lyft may contact the accident victim immediately after the accident, our office advises do not talk to them unless and until you have consulted with a Florida personal injury lawyer.
Often times people who are victims of an accident think that they can handle a claim on their own and they for go the opportunity to adequately be advised of their legal rights. Seeking the help of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help you secure the highest value for your personal injury claim.
