The build up in rideshare options such as Lyft and Uber has some advantages for travelers who require a simple and easy solution to arrange a ride, whether it be to the office, a day out on the town, or for any other reason. In Miami and across the country, these options are extremely desirable and are available through businesses such as Uber and Lyft. They furnish the convenience of arranging a ride by way of a smart phone app. It is typically quicker and easier to book a ride with these services compared to a traditional taxi cab service.
There are many drivers on call, even more so on the weekends and in the heavily trafficked Miami metro vicinity, leading to an uptick in incidents connected with Uber and Lyft vehicles. These transportation services do not carry comparable coverage that a traditional taxi business is legally bound to maintain. This absence of an insurance policy could mean that an individual as a passenger may be taking considerable risks while using these services if injured in an auto accident.

Transporting service providers like Lyft and Uber are entrusted with the passenger’s safety at all times and have a responsibility to its passengers.

One of the principal points of contention in the conflict remained insurance. The legislators and public wondered who should be liable when:
-An Lyft or Uber automobile injured another driver, motorcyclist, passenger, walker, or biker.
-A passenger who was hurt in a Uber or Lyft rideshare vehicle due to the fault of a vehicle driver who was either uninsured or underinsured.
-A Uber or Lyft driver was injured or maimed by an uninsured driver.
These rideshare companies answered the inquiry by guaranteeing that they had insurance coverage with 1 million in insurance limits. Lyft and Uber promised that if one of their “partners” hurt another motorist, pedestrian or motorist while they were rendering a rideshare service, then the Uber or Lyft operator was covered for 1 million dollars.
They also promised that if a rider was injured as an Lyft or Uber client as a result of the negligence of an uninsured motorist, then Lyft and Uber would make available $1,000,000 in uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance coverage. In other words, a Lyft or Uber rider with personal injury attributable to an accident with someone who was uninsured or underinsured will have 1 million dollars in insurance available to reimburse for injuries and damages.
