Tampa Uber Accident Lawyer

Uber did not begin operating in Tampa until 2014 but since that time, the service has increased in popularity year after year. Residents and tourists alike use Uber because it is convenient and affordable. Unfortunately, Uber drivers are no more immune to being involved in a crash than any other motorist on the road. After an accident, injured individuals can file a claim for compensation, but these claims are incredibly complex due to the ridesharing component of them. A Tampa Uber accident lawyer can help you navigate the process so you secure the fair settlement you deserve.

Our Tampa Uber Accident Attorney Helps Other Drivers Hit by an Uber

There are different auto insurance policies that may apply if you were another motorist on the road that was hit by an Uber driver. Florida is a no-fault auto insurance state, which means that you must first file a claim with your own insurer. If you sustained a permanent injury or exhausted the limits of your own personal injury protection (PIP) policy, you can then file an insurance claim with a third party.

The third party you file a claim with will depend on what the Uber driver was doing at the time of the crash. If the driver was not logged into the Uber app, you will have to file a claim with their own personal insurer. If the Uber driver was logged in but was not carrying a passenger, Uber will provide up to $50,000 in bodily injury liability coverage per person and up to $100,000 in bodily injury liability coverage per accident. In this instance, Uber will also provide up to $25,000 in property damage liability coverage per accident.

If the Uber driver had the app turned on and was on their way to pick up a passenger, or had a passenger in their car, Uber will provide up to $1 million for each type of coverage per accident.

Our Tampa Uber Accident Attorneys Helps Injured Passengers

It is not only other motorists on the road that become injured in Uber accidents. Passengers do, as well. If you were injured as a passenger, you also have many options for filing a claim. If you carry your own auto insurance, you may be able to file a claim with them. When another driver was negligent, and not your Uber driver, you can also file a claim with their insurance company.

If the Uber driver was at fault, you can file a claim directly against Uber. Under this coverage, you can claim up to $1 million in bodily injury coverage, as well as property damage if anything of your belongings, such as a smartphone, was damaged during the crash.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
