The Best Uber Accident Lawyers in Miami Lakes, FL

Rideshare companies, like Uber, are becoming more popular for those seeking an easy way to get to their destination. After all, Uber is usually cheaper and easier to access than a taxi service. In fact, you can find someone just about any time of the day or night to get you where you need to be.

Many Uber drivers are just regular people looking to earn some extra cash on the side. There are some minimum requirements to become an Uber driver, however. These criteria include one year of licensed driving experience (3 years if under 23 years old), an eligible 4-door vehicle, and proof of a valid US driver’s license and insurance. In addition, Florida ridesharing laws prohibit those with drunk or reckless driving convictions within the last five years from becoming eligible drivers.

Even with these requirements, rideshare companies don’t have extensive training in transporting others. In fact, drivers can sign up, share required documents, and start earning money in a very short time.

Many Uber drivers are courteous and conscientious when transporting others. Unfortunately, some may make dangerous, even reckless, decisions while getting their clients from point A to point B. After all, the more clients that your driver transports, the more money that he or she earns.

Sadly, poor decisions made by an Uber driver can permanent effects on your life. If you were involved in an accident using Uber or another ridesharing company, then you may be entitled to compensation. Since you weren’t the driver, however, the claims process can be tricky.

Did you know Miami-Dade County has the highest rates of vehicle accidents and injuries in Florida? According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Miami Dade County experienced a 3% increase in motor vehicle accidents from 2016 to 2017. With almost 66,000 crashes in Miami-Dade County, you have a much higher chance of being involved in an accident here than other areas of Florida.

Rideshare programs are booming in the Miami area. In fact, recent research and reports from Uber found that Miami rideshare earnings totaled over $500 million. With increased Uber drivers on the road, many more people use this service for safe transportation throughout the Miami metropolitan area.

Unfortunately, Uber drivers aren’t immune to accidents. Since Miami-Dade County has such a high accident rate, chances are likely that certain Uber drivers will experience an accident at some point in their driving career.

Types of Uber Accident Injuries

Just like any car accident, those using Uber or other rideshare companies may suffer from significant injuries while using the service. For some, these painful injuries can interrupt work, family, and personal life.

The Ward Law Group is ready to help if you suffer from any of the following injuries:

  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Concussions or traumatic brain injuries
  • Muscle damage
  • Burns or lacerations
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Psychological suffering

You worked hard all your life to establish yourself and provide for your family. Then, through no fault of your own, an Uber accident takes away these abilities. The Ward Law Group wants to make sure that your family doesn’t suffer while you recover from your injuries.

Florida Law & Auto Accident Compensation

Florida subscribes to a “no-fault” car accident policy. This means, if you were a driver injured in an Uber accident, then you need to file a claim with your insurance company under your personal injury protection (PIP) plan. Your PIP covers a specific amount described in your insurance policy after you meet your deductible.

But, what if this dollar amount doesn’t cover all your medical bills and lost wages?

By Florida law, rideshare drivers are required to carry larger insurance policies than regular motorists. In fact, they must have at least $1 million in liability coverage to pay for property damage and injuries. This means passengers involved in an Uber accident can file a claim with the rideshare driver’s insurance to recover money for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages. If you were involved in an accident where the Uber driver was at fault, then you can also file a claim with the rideshare company’s insurance if your expenses outweigh your PIP coverage.

Sound confusing? It certainly can be. This is why obtaining the help of a personal injury lawyer is so important. The Ward Law Group has extensive knowledge of Florida’s car accident laws. They can file the necessary paperwork, handle all communications with the insurance companies, and, most importantly, obtain the compensation you need to secure your family’s financial future.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

A car accident is a traumatic experience. In just a few seconds, your life can completely change. When involved in an Uber accident, the first thing you want to do is make sure that you’re safe. If possible, get out of harm’s way and call the local emergency number.

If injured, get help immediately. This is no time to be stoic if you’re feeling any pain. Some car accident injuries can be very serious. Even if you aren’t feeling pain or other symptoms, you want to get checked out by your doctor. Some accident injuries don’t start exhibiting symptoms until days or weeks after the initial incident. Your medical records are an essential part of the claims process. Waiting too long to see a doctor may alter your ability to file a successful claim.

If possible, take pictures at the accident scene. Also, ask for the names and contact information of any witnesses. Eyewitness accounts can provide crucial insights during the accident investigation.

An Uber accident claim is more complicated than typical car accidents. You may want to enlist the help of an attorney, especially if you suffered an injury. If you’re dealing with pain or debilitating medical conditions, then you certainly don’t want to navigate the complex claims process alone.

The Ward Law Group Can Help You

You may think that the insurance companies have your best interests in mind. After all, they’re supposed to be there when you need them. Sadly, this is not the case. In order for the insurance companies to make a profit, they often minimize an Uber accident victim’s claim. While they line their pockets, you are left wondering how you’ll pay all the medical bills and keep your family financially afloat.

Gregory Ward started his career representing the insurance companies. He saw how deserving families weren’t receiving their fair share of compensation during very difficult times. He knew that this was wrong. This is why he founded The Ward Law Group.

The Ward Law Group has successfully secured millions of dollars for their clients. We know how difficult an Uber accident can make your life. Why try battling the insurance companies on your own?

Our bilingual attorneys will be with you through every step of the claims process. From the initial call to the big sigh of relief when your claim is settled, we will make sure you feel supported.

Florida law limits the time you have to file an Uber accident claim. Calling 855-DOLOR-55 (855-365-6755) gets the process started today. Call now and secure a brighter future for your family!

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way.
