Uber/Lyft Accident Attorney Palm Beach Gardens

At Swan Law Firm our Uber and Lyft attorney knows the popularity of rideshare services has led to many our residences counting on this form of transportation for many reasons. Whether your car is in the shop, if you simply do not want to worry about parking, or if you are going to have a drink or two, Uber and Lyft have created an invaluable service.

Our traffic collision attorney knows that just because these drivers are being paid for their services does not mean they are immune to negligence that causes motor vehicle accidents with injuries. The question becomes, if you are involved in an accident with an Uber or Lyft driver, or are in one of these when the collision occurs, who is responsible for the damages? The driver? Uber? Lyft? You?

When is the Uber or Lyft Driver Responsible for a Collision?

An Uber or Lyft driver is just another driver unless they are in “driver” mode when the accident occurs. This means the driver must be logged onto the app of their employer, and physically engaged in employment which could mean picking up or dropping off riders at the time of the collision. If they are not employed at the time of the crash but were negligent in the collisions occurrence their personal injury coverage will be responsible for the damages.

The next scenario is the driver being logged into Uber or Lyft app but not yet accepted the rider’s request. If that is true, either company’s limited liability coverage will be responsible for the injuries including:

  • Liability for Property Damage $50,000
  • Liability Per Person Injured $50,000
  • Total Injury Liability Per Accident $100,000

When the Uber or Lyft driver is physically working which means they have accepted the riders request, even if the driver has not picked the individual or party up yet, the driver is officially on the clock, which makes them their employer’s insurance applicable during a collision up to $1 Million in coverage. Accidents with Uber and Lyft drivers have so many moving parts it is difficult to pursue these collisions and insurance companies on your own.

Incredible experience with this law firm.

“With little to no knowledge on how to pursue the lady that hit me, I was educated quickly on the process of taking action. My own insurance company couldn’t even point me in the right direction. It didn’t help that this lady denied fault in the police report. However, because Blake and his team cared so much and believed in my case they were able to prove this lady was driving recklessly when she hit me. Despite the police officer taking a vague report of the actions that occurred that day, due to photos and where I was hit (passenger side doors) we were able to prove she was 100% at fault.

I can’t say this enough. Thank you so much Blake for treating me like family.”
