Morgan & Morgan

  • Why Is Ridesharing So Popular?

    Ridesharing's popularity derives from its convenience, affordability, and flexibility. Apps like Uber and Lyft allow users to book rides with just a few taps on their smartphones, making it a very convenient transportation option. These services often offer competitive pricing compared to traditional taxis, and they provide various vehicle options to suit different needs. 

    That said, with the rising popularity of ridesharing, we’ve seen an increased number of accidents all over America. Research shows that ridesharing has led to a three percent increase in the rate of fatal accidents in the country.

  • Can You Sue an Uber or Lyft Driver If Involved in an Accident?

    Yes, you can, if they are at fault. In such cases, you may be able to recover damages through different parties, including but not limited to:

    • the driver’s personal insurance;
    • the rideshare company’s liability insurance (Uber and Lyft both offer up to $1 million in personal liability coverage);
    • your own PIP insurance coverage, given that Florida is a no-fault insurance state;
    • your healthcare insurance;
    • among others. 

    That said, keep in mind that determining liability and navigating insurance claims can be complex due to the involvement of multiple parties and varying insurance policies. That’s why we recommend having your case professionally reviewed by the rideshare accident team at Morgan and Morgan.

  • Can a Rideshare Driver Sue the Company If Involved in an Accident?

    A rideshare driver can attempt to sue the company if involved in an accident. However, the question of whether or not they may be entitled to compensation will depend on the employment status of the driver and the specific circumstances of the accident. Since rideshare drivers are generally classified as independent contractors, suing the company can be challenging but not impossible. Take, for example, a situation where there’s evidence that the rideshare company was negligent, such as hiring an underqualified driver, who then caused the accident. In that case, there might be grounds for a lawsuit.

  • What Damages Can I Claim?

    In a rideshare accident, you can claim various types of damages, depending on the accident's impact on your life. These include but are not limited to the following:

    • medical expenses for any injuries sustained;
    • lost wages if you're unable to work due to the accident;
    • lost future earning capacity;
    • pain and suffering (if you suffered serious injuries); and
    • property damage.
