If you were in an accident with an Uber driver in Miami, you need an attorney who specializes in rideshare accidents. This article demonstrates why you need a Miami Uber accident lawyer.
Uber and similar rideshare services have revolutionized the way people get around Miami. Instead of walking to the bus stop and waiting or getting the car out of the garage, all you have to do is download an app and enter where you would like to go.
With convenience, however, comes risk—as a major city, Miami is teeming with traffic, and as the demand for more Uber drivers grows, the roads are getting more chaotic. Uber does not do much to vet their drivers. In fact, besides a year of driving experience in the U.S., the proper licensing, registration, and insurance, and company screening, it’s nearly as simple as becoming a passenger.
Uber drivers are also incentivized to complete their rides as quickly as possible. The more passengers they accept, the more they get paid. This incentive can increase the likelihood of an accident.
If you are in an accident in Miami with an Uber driver or someone driving for another rideshare company, you need an Uber accident lawyer. Here’s why.
Why You Need a Miami Uber Accident Lawyer
Understanding How to Prove Fault and Negligence
An attorney who has experience with Uber accidents can help you prove your case when the rideshare driver is at fault. Understanding negligent driving and the factors that can contribute to it can help your case.
Understanding of Local and State Laws
Ever city and state has their own laws for motorists, and some have specific laws for rideshare drivers. A Miami Uber accident lawyer can help you understand your local and state laws and use their knowledge to benefit your claim during negotiations and litigation.
Understanding the Different Insurance Policies of Uber Drivers
Uber drivers are covered by two separate insurance policies—their personal insurance and Uber’s company policy. While the personal insurance coverage may cover your injuries and property damage, you may qualify for coverage under the $1 million policy that Uber carries for all its drivers. It’s just a matter of knowing which policy covers your specific case.
