Fort Lauderdale Uber Accident Attorneys

Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale for Rideshare Vehicle Accidents

People who are looking for a convenient, cost-friendly method of transportation in South Florida will often turn to Uber and other rideshare services. These apps are increasingly becoming the preferred alternative to taxis due to their ease of access, speediness, and budget-friendly rates. Unfortunately, as the use of Uber and similar services has increased, so too has the number of car accidents involving rideshare drivers. People injured in these accidents will often be unsure about their options and the steps they can take to ensure that they will be fully compensated for their damages.

If you have been hurt in an accident with an Uber vehicle, navigating the complex network of insurance policies and related legal issues can be difficult. At The Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A., our experienced personal injury lawyers are here to help make sense of this situation, and we are prepared to fight for your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation needed for a full recovery.

Representation for Injured Rideshare Passengers in South Florida

There are a variety of measures that should be taken to ensure that the safety of rideshare passengers will be protected at all times. Drivers must pass background checks and vehicle inspections prior to joining the rideshare company's team. However, Uber's policies and the methods used to screen potential drivers have been called into question. Some safety advocates have stated that the background checks used by Uber are insufficient, and some drivers may be approved even if they have a history of unsafe driving.

Fortunately for passengers or others who are involved in rideshare accidents, Uber provides a comprehensive insurance policy. This policy provides one million dollars of coverage for accidents that occur when an Uber driver is transporting passengers or when they are en route to pick someone up. However, If an Uber driver is involved in an accident while using the app and waiting for a ride request, lower policy limits will usually apply. If a driver is offline or gets into an accident in a situation where Uber's insurance policy does not apply, their own personal auto insurance may provide coverage for people injured in the incident.

While insurance policies should cover the damages incurred by Uber accident victims, collecting compensation through these policies is not always an easy process. An insurance agency might try to refuse a person's claim by disputing the seriousness of their injuries or claiming that the victim was at fault for that accident. Victims may also need to file claims with multiple insurance companies, and determining what coverage applies and when claims should be filed can often be confusing. At The Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A., we can help injury victims develop a strategy for pursuing compensation from all available sources. We can ensure that all insurance claims are filed properly, and we can negotiate settlements that will fully address the injuries and damages a victim has suffered.
