What happens if I'm injured in an accident as an Uber or Lyft passenger? What happens if I'm struck by an rideshare driver? At Lowman Law Firm, we've handled a number of cases involving rideshare accident injuries, and many clients come to us with questions like these. And it's not surprising; although rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have revolutionized the transportation industry, they're still fairly new and the laws surrounding them often change.

Because of the complications – and multiple parties – involved in rideshare accident cases, it's important to have an experienced attorney on your side in the event of an accident. At Lowman Law Firm, we know the ins and outs of the ridesharing industry, so if you've been injured in a Crystal River Uber or Lyft accident, call us for a free consultation.

Uber & Lyft Accidents in Crystal River, FL

With just the tap of an app, Crystal River residents can have an Uber or Lyft driver at their service in a matter of minutes. With the added convenience, however, comes some risk – ridesharing has ultimately put more cars on the road, and that means more accidents, injuries, and fatalities.

A recent ridesharing study discovered that rideshare accidents had increased traffic deaths by as much as 3% since they first rose in popularity in 2011. That’s equivalent to as many as 1,100 fatalities a year.

While the majority of increases occurred in larger cities, Uber and Lyft accidents in Crystal River still happen. If you've been injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft in Crystal River, contact Lowman Law Firm for expert advice and representation.

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Crystal River Uber & Lyft Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

Uber and Lyft generally take a “hands-off” approach to many claims when a driver is involved in an accident, partly because ridesharing drivers are independent contractors and carry their own insurance coverage in addition to the ridesharing company's additional coverage.

This corporate insurance, however, only applies at certain times. For example, if a rideshare driver is "offline" (in the vehicle but not en route to pick up a customer or transporting a customer) they are not covered and a traditional Crystal River auto accident claim would apply. 

If you're involved in an Uber or Lyft accident when a rideshare driver is active with the app, Uber or Lyft will want you to work with your own insurance company, their corporate insurer, and the driver's personal insurance company, which can quickly become a real headache.

To avoid these complications, or if you feel like you're being pressured to settle for an unfair amount, contact Lowman Law Firm's Crystal River rideshare injury attorneys for expert help.
