Each time you drive in a car, there is always a chance that you could be involved in a car accident. Car accidents, whether you are driving or not, can be devastating and leave you severely injured.

Rules for Rideshare Accident Injury Cases
Uber and Lyft have developed comparable insurance policies for their drivers in the event of an accident. These coverages depend on the circumstances of your accident with the rideshare driver, including:
- Option 1: You were a passenger: A driver actively transporting a passenger while on duty is typically covered by Uber or Lyft’s insurance policy. This policy provides high limits for personal injury and property damage.
- Option 2: You were not a passenger: You could initially submit a claim with the negligent driver’s insurance company. If the driver’s insurance company refuses your claim, Uber’s or Lyft’s policies may apply.
- Option 3. Rideshare driver not logged into the app: An off-duty driver is not covered by the insurance plans of Lyft or Uber. As a result, an accident involving an off-duty driver will be covered by the driver’s personal insurance.
Florida’s No-Fault Insurance Rules Affect Your Case
Due to Florida’s no-fault insurance system, you will file a claim with your insurer. Financial recovery then depends on the type of policy you acquired and the scope of coverage. It also depends on whether the driver was logged into the app, if you were a passenger, and other details.
You cannot recover pain and suffering damages under no-fault insurance rules, regardless of the circumstances, unless your injuries exceed the severe injury threshold. Our Coral Springs rideshare accident attorney will elaborate on whether your situation exceeds this threshold and how you can go about getting additional compensation for your losses under the law.
