According to a bill signed into law by Rick Scott, rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft, are obliged by law to provide each passenger with 50K in compensation to cover medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and even wrongful death. Furthermore, Uber and Lyft must provide $100,000 per person in Bodily Injury Coverage when the Uber or Lyft has the application open and awaiting to take an Uber or Lyft rider to their destination but the rider is not in the vehicle at the time of an Uber car accident.
The recently established law, known as "transportation network companies" calls for Uber and Lyft to set guidelines to meet safety measures that may lack coherence in terms of rules and regulations for rideshare operation companies operating across municipalities across Florida and the entire USA.According to the new ride-share law, Uber and Lyft must abide by certain guidelines such as:
- Drivers are subject to mandatory background checks.
- Rideshare companies must submit operation audits every two years.
- Local and State Enforcement must be provided with data through digital networks.
- Rideshare companies must carry Bodily Injury Coverage for $100,000 in the event of injury or death in an Uber or Lyft accident in Florida. As well as $25,000 to cover property damage with the app on but without a passenger.
- Rideshares such as Uber and Lyft must carry insurance policies for $1,000,000 in coverage to passengers injured during a ride.
