Throughout the year, many Americans depend on ride-sharing companies, like Uber and Lyft, to provide them a safe ride home. This has brought a marked rise in Lyft and Uber accidents in Southwest Florida. Since hailing a taxi cab has become a thing of the past, most people turn to their cellular devices and tap on apps. Uber and Lyft are ride sharing or ride-hailing services which have been offering transportation services to billions of people in the U.S. and worldwide.

Complications of Florida Uber Accidents or Lyft Accidents

Accidents which involve ride sharing or ride hailing companies can be legally complicated. Finding which insurance company will be responsible can be quite challenging. Does the driver of the ride sharing company have the proper insurance? Do Uber or Lyft bear responsibility for the action of their drivers? What happens if the Uber or Lyft driver were not at fault?
