Ridesharing services are a new thing. They seem to exist outside the boundaries of typical business models established by taxi and livery companies. But, they’re still responsible for the injuries their driver causes. Even if companies like Lyft and Uber insist their drivers are third party contractors unaffiliated with their brand, they’re still required to provide insurance coverage in the event of an accident.
This means Lyft or Uber can be held accountable for your injuries. Depending on the type of accident, you may be able to secure damages in the form of:
- Emergency medical care and treatment
- Long term hospital accommodations
- Doctor and specialist fees
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of wages

Who is Responsible for My Injuries in an Uber or Lyft Accident in Florida?
As of today, the simplest answer to that question would be – the driver. The driver is the one who caused the accident, so they must be held accountable for your injuries. But, it will be either the driver’s own private insurance policy or the ridesharing company they drive for that will be providing the necessary coverage.
Ridesharing drivers often have multiple policies to fill in the gaps that their company policy fails to cover. The insurance company that ends up with the lion’s share of the responsibility will also do everything it can to avoid paying the full amount. This means you will need strong representation at your side to ensure you are provided the proper compensation.
