Uber Accident Attorney Miami

People in the Miami area use just about every means of transportation available – from bicycles to buses, and indeed, ridesharing companies. Rideshares have given many people the ability to travel at the click of a button from any place in the city. However, ridesharing companies have gone unpunished when their drivers cause a car accident for quite some time. In Miami-Dade County alone, there were 65,986 car accidents that resulted in 32,389 and 285 fatalities in 2017, according to the Florida Department of Highway Traffic Safety and Motor Vehicles. These accidents can change an accident victim’s life forever, and as a company and a driver that are paid to provide transportation services, Uber and its drivers have a responsibility to protect the general public and their customers when a driver causes an accident to occur by providing accident victims with access to insurance that can effectively compensate them for their injuries.

The Florida legislature recognized this fact and passed multiple laws requiring rideshare companies to carry specific insurance, conduct background checks, and establish zero tolerance policies regarding drug and alcohol use, among other things. As such, every passenger that utilizes the services of Uber should be aware of the specific laws regarding Uber accidents that have been enacted in Florida.

What To Do After an Uber Accident as a Passenger in Florida

Passengers are considered to be both the most vulnerable and the most protected party in an Uber accident, because they are merely a customer that is paying for a ride. As such, Uber is required to carry a one million dollar liability insurance policy to cover death, personal injury, and property damage under Fla.Stat§627.748(7). This insurance is meant to cover you if you are an Uber passenger involved in an accident caused by the Uber driver or if you are an Uber passenger that is involved in an accident caused by an underinsured driver or a driver that doesn’t have insurance at all.

Due to this, you, as a passenger, need to immediately start gathering evidence for your Uber accident attorney after being involved in any type of Uber accident. The reason this is so important is, the ridesharing company will immediately begin trying to diminish the value of your claim, because you will be covered by the Uber’s insurance policy regardless of how the accident occurred. As such, there five things you should always do after being involved in an Uber accident as a passenger.

1. Call the Police Immediately

There are a few things that you need to make sure are recorded after being involved in an Uber accident as a passenger such as the fact that you were a passenger that was utilizing Uber’s services, that the Uber driver was indeed providing those services, the name of each driver, and the insurance information for each driver. The best way to obtain and record all of this information is to contact the police, regardless of whether the accident was major or minor. Moreover, the police provide an objective account of how, when, and where the accident occurred. All of this information will be used by your attorney later to prove the necessary elements needed to give you access to Uber’s insurance if needed.

2. Take Pictures of the Accident Scene

Regardless of the fact that you were an Uber passenger at the time the accident occurred, an Uber accident is still a car accident and must be treated as such by your Uber accident attorney. In this regard, you should take pictures of everything to document how the accident occurred including pictures of each vehicle, the accident scene itself including cross streets, and the license plate of each vehicle. Moreover, you should try to obtain the name and contact information for anyone that witnessed the accident occur.

3. Get Evaluated by a Doctor

Being involved in any type of a car accident can lead to an accident victim sustaining serious injuries. In fact, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), over two million Americans are injured each year due to car accidents. Due to the high likelihood that you will sustain some type of injury as a result of a car accident, you should always get evaluated by a doctor after being involved in an Uber accident. This will ensure that you have not sustained a life-threatening injury, and it will allow you to document the full extent of your injuries, which can be used by your Uber accident attorney throughout the litigation process to demonstrate the extent of your damages.

4. Contact an Uber Accident Attorney

Uber accident claims can be complicated complex legal matters that are vigorously defended by Uber. In fact, Uber literally has one million reasons to try to diminish the value of your claim. As such, you should always contact an Uber accident attorney after being involved in any type of car accident involving an Uber driver. 1800-Injured is a medical and legal referral service that connects accident victims with Uber accident attorneys in the Miami area.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
