Miami Uber Accident Injury LawyersUber and Lyft Serious Injury Attorneys in Miami

Uber Uber, Lyft and other Transportation Network Companies (TNC) are revolutionizing the way people travel. But one thing hasn’t changed – people get seriously injured in car accidents in Miami and all over South Florida. And when good folks get injured in an Uber or Lyft car, they should talk to a Miami Uber Accident Injury Lawyer as soon as possible.

Many towns, cities and counties have debated how to regulate Uber and Lyft. The overwhelming majority of the electorate demanded that the politicians figure out how to allow Lyft and Uber operate in their communities. Palm Beach, Broward and now Miami-Dade counties have finally given in and, like much of the country, Uber and Lyft can now operate freely throughout South Florida including at local airports like Miami International Airport.

One of the main points of contention in the TNC debate was insurance. The politicians and the public wanted to know who would be responsible when:

These ride-sharing companies answered the question by promising that they had insurance coverage with one million dollar ($1,000,000) insurance policy limits. Uber and Lyft promised that if one of their “partners” injured another driver, pedestrian or motorist while they were “on the clock” then the Uber driver was covered for 1 million dollars.

They also promised that if an Uber or Lyft customer was injured due to the negligence of an uninsured motorist, then Uber and Lyft have 1 million dollars in uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance coverage. In other words, the Uber or Lyft passenger with personal injuries as a result of an accident with someone who did not have car insurance or not enough car insurance would have 1 million dollars in insurance available to compensate for injuries and damages.

The question of PIP, or Personal Injury Protection, benefits has not been resolved. It is fairly certain that the Uber or Lyft driver’s personal automobile policy would deny coverage. Most auto policies exclude coverage when its insured is using the insured vehicle for a commercial purpose like driving for Uber or Lyft unless the insurance company knows about it in advance. If the insurance company knows that the insured person or vehicle is driving for Lyft or Uber then they can offer the correct policy of insurance and charge an appropriate premium.
