What to Do After a Rideshare Accident in Miami

Rideshare accident cases are very similar to regular motor vehicle accident cases, but the only real difference is that you must account for the rideshare company. Therefore, it is advised that you follow all the general rules of thumb that you would after a typical traffic accident in addition to keeping as much information saved from your phone and applicable application that was used in securing the ride. The name of the driver, make of the car and all communications and texts surrounding the ride in question will be key evidence and must be saved. You will also need to report the accident to the rideshare company in question. For a tech company, like Uber or Lyft, you can do so through its website or app. This will create a paper or electronic trail for the accident and notify the company that you may be eligible to receive compensation.

If you have been injured in a rideshare accident through an unofficial entity (such as if you were using rideshare through a social media group), you may be at a loss regarding to whom to report the accident. In cases such as this, you can still recover compensation from the at-fault party or an insurance company—a lawyer can help you determine the best course of action for you. Thus, it is crucial to make sure that you file an accident report with the police and get the insurance and contact info of everyone involved in the crash.

Proving Negligence in a Rideshare Accident Lawsuit

Rideshare accidents can be particularly confusing because there may be more than two parties involved—and multiple parties may be liable. It all depends on the details of your case.

Several examples of parties that may be eligible for compensation include:

  • Injured rideshare drivers
  • Injured rideshare passengers
  • Other injured motorists
  • Injured passengers of a non-rideshare vehicle
  • Injured pedestrians and bicyclists

To be eligible for compensation, you must prove that another party was at fault for the accident because of some form of negligence. This may include speeding, reckless driving, distracted driving, drunk driving, failing to maintain their vehicle, and more. Our attorneys can assist you in identifying negligence and proving it before a judge and jury.

If you cannot prove negligence on the other party’s end, you will not be able to recover compensation except for the small amount available under your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. This “no-fault” insurance coverage is required for all drivers in Miami and throughout the state. PIP insurance covers medical bills and other expenses, regardless of fault.
