The face of public transportation is changing. Now you don’t have to wait for the bus, hail a cab, drive your own vehicle or beg a friend for a ride. All you need is a smartphone and live in a city like Miami or Coral Gables that is serviced by one of today’s popular ride-sharing companies such as Uber or Lyft.
What is ride-sharing?
Unlike standing on a street corner trying to get a cabbie’s attention as he speeds by, when you use Uber or Lyft you simply download their app to your smartphone. With a finger swipe a driver is on the way to take you to your destination. Plus, you can both track your driver through your phone’s GPS and also pay for your ride using the app. But unfortunately, this modern technology isn’t problem-free. Many cities across America are struggling with legal issues brought about by these ride-sharing services. A major concern is whether or not these companies and their drivers have adequate insurance. Unfortunately, the rise in these ridesharing apps, come with a rise in the number of accidents involving Uber & Lyft automobiles. If you’ve been in a Lyft or Uber car accident, contact Miami Accident Center and see a Lyft or Uber accident chiropractor doctor!
Uber accidents and auto accident laws in Miami & Coral Gables
Traditional taxi companies supply the vehicles and are financially responsible for the registration, license tag, property tax and auto insurance. Uber contracts with individuals who as independent contractors drive their own personal cars to transport passengers. The drivers are responsible for all their expenses and are required to show proof of current license, registration and insurance. Uber does provide commercial liability automobile insurance but also requires the driver to have their own personal policy in place while driving. While on the surface it seems as though a ride-sharing passenger is adequately covered, things aren’t always as they seem.
Auto insurance policies are in place to cover passenger’s medical expenses in the event of accident injuries. But, in some circumstances, medical claims may be denied or the policy reaches its maximum coverage. So, what happens when you have exhausted your policy’s benefits or your medical claims are denied? To help answer these questions and for legal representation, Miami Accident Center can refer you to attorneys that specialize in personal injury cases. A personal injury attorney will assist you in recovering compensation for your pain, suffering and unpaid medical bills.
