Most Common Causes of Rideshare Injuries in Florida

Compared to other public transport, rideshare drivers must meet very few requirements to start driving people around. Most rideshare drivers receive minimal training or oversight, making them riskier than alternatives like taxis or buses. They are more likely to cause accidents due to issues like:

  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence
  • Disregard of weather conditions
  • Poorly maintained vehicles

These issues can cause severe accidents and injuries to passengers and other road users.

Who Is Liable for Rideshare Accidents?

If a rideshare driver is at fault for a car accident, there are two parties who may be liable for your injuries.

First, the driver is almost always partially liable for the accident since they were the one behind the wheel. If you file a personal injury lawsuit against them, their insurance will be responsible for paying damages to you.

Second, the rideshare company that hired the driver may also be partially liable. These businesses are responsible for vetting drivers before allowing them to begin work. Suppose a rideshare company reasonably should have been aware that a driver on their app frequently behaved dangerously behind the wheel and let them keep driving anyway. In that case, the company may be partially responsible if that driver caused an accident and hurt you while on the clock.
