Today, we're sharing the road with many rideshare drivers who've jumped into the gig economy (there are nearly 4 million Uber drivers around the world). With all these new drivers on the road, there are bound to be more accidents. And, when someone is involved in a rideshare accident, they have a lot of questions regarding fault and liability. 
 
Because laws surrounding the ridesharing industry are constantly changing, it's important to have an experienced Uber and Lyft accident 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 Ridge Manor Uber or Lyft accident, call our local team for a free consultation.

Uber & Lyft Accidents in Ridge Manor, Florida

With just the tap of an app, Ridge Manor 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 Ridge Manor still happen. If you've been injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft in Ridge Manor, contact Lowman Law Firm for expert advice and representation.

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 Ridge Manor 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 local Ridge Manor rideshare injury attorneys for expert help.

Trucking Accident Case

Dealing with insurance companies is not a pleasant experience and I wanted a professional on my side. I met with Joe Lowman who explained the process to me and put me at ease with me realizing that I had a competent, capable and experienced team fighting for me. They navigated through getting my car fixed and countless medical appointments and kept me informed as things progressed. Joe Hill was awesome at taking the facts, communicating with the doctors offices and insurance companies and getting the best outcome possible. The outcome was greater than I thought was possible. This would not have been possible without the awesome work, skills and professionalism of Joe Hill. He is great and I will always recommend Lowman Law Firm. You guys are fantastic!
