As rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have increased in popularity in Florida and across the nation, so have accidents involving these vehicles. Some have even blamed ridesharing for the increase in auto accident injuries and fatalities across the country in recent years. Rideshare accidents also present specific complexities regarding the recovery of compensation for those who have been injured.
Spohrer Dodd offers experienced, intelligent legal counsel for those who have been seriously injured or have lost loved ones in Uber or Lyft accidents. In most cases, the ridesharing company’s insurance policy will cover damages, but we will consider all sources of compensation and will work meticulously to determine fault and therefore who should be held liable. No stone will be left unturned as we pursue the compensation you need – and deserve.

Identifying the Cause of a Lyft or Uber Accident
When you step into an Uber or Lyft, you are placing your well-being into the hands of a driver you do not know. Depending on the level of the service you have selected, this driver’s record may not be fully verified. Or, even an experienced/professional driver may be tired, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or distracted. This can easily lead to an accident.
Our Jacksonville rideshare accident attorneys take on cases involving such causes as:
- Drunk driving
- Driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs
- Distracted driving
- Defective auto parts
- Hazardous roadways
- Heavy weather
Whether fault lies with your driver or another party, we will take the necessary steps to identify legal responsibility and then prove the true value of your claim so you can recover a fair settlement or award.
