Uber Accident Personal Injury Attorney


Hurt in an Uber ride in Miami, either before, during, or after? The Perazzo Law Firm Shares best personal injury attorney advice for dealing with Uber ride-share car accidents and Uber Accident insurance claims for compensation related to Uber Car Accidents in Miami-Dade.

Miami and North Miami Beach Personal Injury Law offices handle personal injury and property damage claims as a result of an accident involving Uber, Uber Eats, Lyft, or any other rideshare services company operating in Miami and Orlando.

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:
  1. Drivers are subject to mandatory background checks.
  2. Rideshare companies must submit operation audits every two years.
  3. Local and State Enforcement must be provided with data through digital networks.
  4. 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.
  5. Rideshares such as Uber and Lyft must carry insurance policies for $1,000,000 in coverage to passengers injured during a ride.

When an Uber car accident occurs in Miami and injuries or damages are involved, it may not necessarily be the fault of the Uber driver. Sometimes an Uber driver may be on the receiving end of a collision and regardless of whether or not there was a passenger on board, he/she may be eligible for compensation through an insurance claim.

Uber drivers carry Bodily Injury insurance policies aimed at providing economic support to cover any bodily injuries incurred in an accident that involves their vehicle. This holds true whenever their app is on and they are searching for or on route to pick up an Uber rider. In other words, they are covered by Bodily Injury Insurance and may receive up to $50,000 in compensation to cover personal injuries such as broken bones, fractures, or head and neck injuries. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm urges Uber drivers involved in accidents while their app is on, to contact the Perazzo Law Firm offices in Miami-Dade immediately after an accident in Miami or any other city in which they operate.
