UBER – Who Can I sue if I’m Injured?
Posted by HolzbergLegal | September 29, 2015
For many years suing a taxi company for for your personal injuries was a hassle. Taxi companies are historically either under-insured, had surplus lines coverage, use second-rate insurance companies or play the corporate shell game to try to conceal the real owner of the vehicle. The advent of UBER (and LYFT) as both a popular and better, more comfortable choice for your transportation needs is changing this old, tired industry, in many ways, for the better.
Fortunately, in many states including Florida , in which UBER is competing with local taxi companies, unlike the taxis, they have chosen to obtain good insurance coverage with relatively high limits ($500,000-$1 million or more) and with reputable companies like State Farm. While State Farm is a typical nemesis for HOLZBERG LEGAL in automobile accident claims, they pay when they settle or when you beat them in court.
