Uber and Lyft
hy hire us if you were involved in an Uber or Lyft accident?
Uber and Lyft are changing the way we travel. We at Pacin Levine, P.A., are the experienced Uber and Lyft Accident Attorneys. We are familiar with the practices, procedures and insurance policies, and have represented many types of cases involving Uber, Lyft, and other ridesharing services, including:
- Pedestrians struck by Uber and Lyft vehicles;
- Passengers injured in Uber and Lyft vehicles;
- Vehicles involved in accidents with Uber and Lyft vehicles;
- Uber and Lyft drivers injured by other vehicles;
- Bicyclists struck by Uber and Lyft vehicles;
- Sexual and physical assaults by Uber and Lyft drivers.
Will there be insurance coverage?
Unlike taxi companies, Uber and Lyft drivers use their own personal vehicles rather than commercial vehicles. Accordingly, Florida Law requires coverage beyond the State standard insurance coverage for personal vehicles while logged into the ridesharing network and when providing a ride to a paying passenger. However, there are distinctions between the amount of coverage required when providing a ride and when simply logged into the network.
While logged into the network but not providing a ride:
- Coverage of at least $50,000 for death and bodily injury per person;
- Coverage of at least $100,000 for death and bodily injury per incident;
- Coverage of at least $25,000 for property damage;
- Personal injury protection benefits that meet the minimum coverage amounts required under §627.730-627.7405; and
- Uninsured and underinsured vehicle coverage as required by 627.727.
While providing a ride:
- Coverage of at least $1 million for death, bodily injury, and property damage;
- Personal injury protection benefits that meet the minimum coverage amounts required of a limousine under 627.730-627.7405; and
- Uninsured and underinsured vehicle coverage as required by §627.727.
What if I am an Uber or Lyft driver and I was hit by an uninsured motorist?
As an Uber or Lyft driver, your ridesharing company (i.e., Uber or Lyft) is required to provide up to one million dollars in uninsured motor vehicle coverage while you are engaged in a ride and $50,000.00 in uninsured motor vehicle coverage when you are logged into the network, but not engaged in a ride. This will cover you in the event that you are injured due to the negligence of an uninsured driver or in a hit and run accident, which is not your fault.
Were you assaulted by an Uber or Lyft driver?
If you were groped, sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, robbed, attacked, beaten, threatened, or otherwise suffered emotional or physical harm by an Uber or Lyft driver, then we may be able to help. Uber and Lyft are providing a service to the public and have a legal duty to ensure their drivers are offering a safe environment for their passengers.
