The build up in ride sharing services such as Lyft and Uber has several good points for people who want a simple and easy method to schedule a trip, whether to work, a day out and about, or for virtually any purpose. In Miami and all over the country, these options are incredibly desirable and are available through businesses like Uber and Lyft. They furnish the convenience of arranging a ride via a cell phone app. It is usually quicker and simpler to arrange a ride with these services compared to a conventional taxi cab service.
There are multiple drivers on call, even more so on weekends and in the heavily trafficked Miami metro region, creating a surge in accidents connected with Lyft and Uber vehicles. These transportation service providers do not carry comparable insurance coverage that a traditional taxi business is required to have in place. This absence of insurance protection may mean that you as a rider might be taking significant risks while using these services if harmed in an car accident.

Ride Share businesses such as Lyft and Uber are vested with the passenger’s security at all times and have a obligation to its passengers.

One of the main points of debate in the conflict remained insurance. The legislators and general public considered who would be accountable when:
-An Uber or Lyft vehicle injured another driver, motorcyclist, rider, walker, or bicyclist.
-A rider who became harmed in a Uber or Lyft rideshare vehicle due to the mistake of a motorist who turned out to be either uninsured or underinsured.
-A Lyft or Uber operator was injured or maimed by an uninsured motorist.
These rideshare providers responded to the challenge by making sure that they had insurance coverage with one million dollars ($1,000,000) insurance policy limits. Uber and Lyft assured that in case one of their “partners” hurt another motorist, pedestrian or vehicle driver while they were providing a ride-share service, then the Lyft or Uber driver was insured for 1 million dollars.
They also guaranteed that if an individual suffered a loss as an Uber or Lyft customer as a consequence of the mistake of an uninsured driver, then Lyft and Uber would provide, 1 million dollars in uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance coverage. To paraphrase, a Uber or Lyft rider with personal injury caused by an automobile accident with anyone who was uninsured or underinsured would have 1 million dollars in insurance accessible to compensate for injuries and damages.
