Miramar Uber & Lyft Accident Lawyers

Florida Injury Attorneys Bring Experience & Dedication into Representing Broward County Clients Injured in Uber & Lyft Ride-Sharing Accidents

Uber and Lyft accidents may be relatively new occurrences here in South Florida, but at Lawlor, White & Murphey, our Miramar Uber & Lyft accident lawyers are no strangers to car accidents and have adjusted quickly by studying the new issues and laws that can apply when an accident involves an Uber or Lyft driver. One of the primary complications in cases involving Uber and Lyft ride-sharing injuries is navigating the insurance laws that now apply in Miramar. In some cases, it can be difficult to determine which policy will cover the costs of your injuries—your own policy, the at-fault driver’s policy or one of the policies that Uber and Lyft are now required to maintain under Florida law.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we have a combined five-plus decades’ worth of experience successfully helping clients navigate the Florida insurance rules and court system to recover compensation for their injuries. We are well-versed in both the Florida no-fault insurance law and the new requirements that now apply in Uber or Lyft accident cases. We are also familiar with the tactics that insurance companies tend to employ to minimize their financial exposure after an accident—the insurance adjusters know that the insurance rules in Uber and Lyft ride-sharing injury cases are complicated, so might deny an initial claim and think that someone else’s coverage will provide the necessary compensation. We fight back against these tactics, and will thoroughly investigate your case to determine who can be held responsible for compensating you for your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions About Claims Involving Uber & Lyft Ride-Sharing Injuries in Miramar, Florida

What should I do if I was injured in an Uber or Lyft accident?

How are these cases different, apart from the insurance laws? One primary recommendation we would give to anyone who has sustained injuries in an Uber or Lyft ride-sharing accident is to be especially careful about who you talk to. Avoid making any sort of statement to Uber or Lyft, or to any insurance adjuster. Uber and Lyft are huge companies with extensive concerns regarding both publicity and profit. While it is always advisable to be careful about what you say following an accident, companies like Uber and Lyft may go to greater lengths than anticipated to avoid liability for an accident. This general recommendation against speaking also applies to social media and written documents—don’t put anything about your accident in writing without first calling our experienced lawyers, because you never know how a casual statement could damage your case. In fact, we’d recommend that you refrain from social media entirely until you talk to us.

What if I was on a bicycle in Miramar and an Uber driver caused an accident and injured me?

I don’t have my own car insurance so how does Florida’s no-fault law apply? The enhanced Uber or Lyft insurance requirements will apply even if you were on a bicycle or walking when an Uber or Lyft driver struck you and caused injuries. Even if the driver was not carrying an Uber or Lyft passenger (or looking for one), you can still bring a claim for compensation against his or her personal insurance policy when injured on a bicycle.
