Ride-Share Delivery Accidents

The Perazzo Law Firm clerical staff and attorneys have ample experience handling ride-share accident claims for compensation throughout Miami and Miami-Dade and our Insurance Claims staff has the know-how to achieve righteous results to cover medical expenses, lost wages, damages, or losses as a result of a ride-share accident in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.

A ride-share delivery accident in Miami can take place at any time due to the amount of ride share delivery services companies operating non-stop seven days a week. When ride-share delivery operators take to the streets, they are usually in a hurry to deliver and move-on to the next delivery, as the more deliveries they make, the greater their profit. Ride-share operators, apart from being in a hurry, are very often distracted by the app that keeps them busy. Hence, they can easily be at fault for the accidents they are involved in. Many times, pedestrians fall victim to rideshare delivery service operators in Miami as the city is very often swarming with tourists taking to the sights and unfamiliar with city's inner workings. Motorists may often involved in accidents with ride-share delivery services as traffic congestion grows. Perazzo Law knows that motorists in Miami, as well as in almost all cities where cars dwell, are also quite often distracted by cell phone use, either due to texting and driving or by using GPS apps to help guide them through the streets. When these factors combine, the end result is usually a car accident that has innocent victims paying the price. When an accident involving a ride-share delivery service strikes, the Perazzo Law Firm personal injury staff is ready to fight for the accident victim's rights for compensation following a situation with a ride share service that ends in bodily harm or damages to you, friends, or family members in Miami.

With the rise in ride share delivery services such as UberEats, Instacart, DoorDash, and more, Walmart is striving to stay-in-tune with this food-delivery rush. With more than a million customers placing InHome Delivery orders from Walmart within several East Coast cities, Miami has become the next target for the groceries and goods giant. Online shopping is nothing new to Miami residents or anyone with a credit card and an Amazon account. But Walmart aims to take home delivery a step further. Though online shopping on Ebay, for example, offers free and reliable delivery, customers ordering groceries online from Walmart would have to pay a fee and cover the cost of a special door lock, which will enable the Walmart delivery employees to enter the customer’s home and makes their way towards the fridge. In other words, an absolute stranger will have access to your home, business, place of work, etc. However, the Walmart deliver employee will be equipped with a camera that the customer can access from a special app and be able to track the employee’s progress towards the customer’s refrigerator. Furthermore, each delivery placed by the customer will planned and scheduled at the time of the online purchase. Thus, customers can rest assured that Walmart home delivery personnel won’t be walking in on them at the wrong time. Customers were wary at first during pilot tests runs in new Jersey, as premises owners didn’t appreciate strangers walking into their homes or place of business when they are not there. But according to a Walmart executive leading this new concept in home delivery, Walmart quickly gained their customer’s trust, as there are strict requirements which the delivery staff must meet before being assigned to this style of home delivery service. In a nut shell, Walmart is eager to capitalize on the home delivery boom and the success of its grocery business, which accounted for 50% of its yearly turnover.

When is an UBER / LYFT Driver at Fault for an Auto Accident?

An Uber driver may be found at fault for an accident if the Uber or Lyft driver has acted negligently while behind the wheel of an of Uber or Lyft vehicle and caused an accident. At the scene of the accident, a police officer will write a report and if found at fault, the Uber driver will receive a citation,  usually for careless driving, failure to yield to oncoming traffic, or failure to yield to right of way, etc. The police report and eyewitness testimony are usually the two most important factors for determining fault in an accident that involves an Uber or Lyft driver. Almost all Uber or Lyft accidents will involve one or more of the following:

  • Another car, SUV, or truck
  • A motorbike
  • A cyclist
  • A pedestrian
  • Fixed objects such as light poles
  • Or other third-party victims

Following an Uber or Lyft  accident that initially finds the Uber or Lyft driver liable, a Perazzo Law Firm Uber accident lawyer in Miami will gather all pertinent information and testimony with which to file an insurance claim for compensation to present to the Uber driver's insurance provider. Most often, Uber drivers are provided with a $1 million policy consisting of the following:

  • Uninsured motorist coverage: which helps cover personal injury in the event that the other vehicle/s involved have no insurance with which to cover medical expenses or losses.
  • Underinsured motorist coverage: which helps cover medical expenses that exceed the $10,000 provided by PIP (Personal Injury Protection).
  • Bodily Injury coverage: which covers medical expenses and lost wages that the accident victim/s suffer as a result of the Uber accident when the Uber driver is or isn't at fault.
  • Comprehensive coverage:  which helps cover the cost of replacing or repairing a vehicle that has been stolen or damaged in situations that do not involve collisions. This may include fire, vandalism, or damage from adverse weather conditions.
  • Collision coverage: which helps cover the cost of repairing or replacing a vehicle that is damaged in a collision that involves another motor vehicle or fixed object.

However, Uber / Lyft mandates that all Uber or Lyft drivers carry car insurance that includes the supplemental insurance coverages mentioned above while the app is on. However, when the app is not on, their personal vehicle insurance policy covers Uber drivers. It's important to remember that regardless of fault, Uber drivers and passengers are covered from the moment the Uber App is on. Thus, if an accident occurs before, during, or after the Uber / Lyft ride, the Uber / Lyft driver is covered. Uber / Lyft drivers usually pay about $1,200 to $2,400 annually for insurance coverage. A cheaper alternative is rideshare insurance, for $10 to $350 per year, depending on your location and insurer.

Determining Fault After an Uber Car Accident

An Uber / Lyft driver may be undeniably at fault for an accident when it is clear that the Uber or Lyft driver acted negligently while behind the wheel.

Some of the main acts of negligence by an Uber / Lyft driver may include one or more of the following:

Cellphone use while driving: negligent cellphone use is one of the main causes of accidents today. An Uber driver may be easily distracted by their cellphone when using a GPS service to reach their destination. Sometimes, an Uber driver may use their cellphone to text, talk, activate an app, or even check for other rides. If you are an Uber passenger and your Uber driver is using his/her cellphone at the time of the accident, he/she will almost certainly be found at fault for the Uber car accident.

Careless driving: not paying attention to the road for whatever reason is something that most drivers do every now and then. Most rear-end collisions, which are among the most common accidents faced by Uber drivers, are the result of not paying attention to traffic ahead, especially traffic that is slowed or stopped for whatever reason. When an Uber driver is careless and an Uber car accident occurs, the police officer arriving at the scene of the Uber car accident will be able to quickly determine fault by gathering statements from those involved, as well as inspecting the damage to vehicles. Slowed or stopped traffic ahead is common at intersections or on roadways experiencing heavy traffic. Uber drivers may be distracted by conversation or by the GPS instructions appearing on their cellphones display screens. Failure to yield to oncoming traffic is another example of careless driving, especially at intersections, on/off ramps, roundabouts, parking lot exits, and even driveways. When a police officer cites an Uber for careless driving following an Uber car accident, the Uber passenger or Uber car accident victim, will most often be able to settle for just compensation through an insurance claim filed by a personal injury lawyer acting on behalf of their client.
