Miami Law Firm Serving Uber & Lyft Accident Claims

MIAMI – A sixty-eight year old Uber driver lost his life this past Tuesday when his SUV was crashed into by a stolen vehicle allegedly fleeing from the police. According to official reports, surveillance camera, and cellphone footage, the Uber driver’s SUV suffered a violent impact when a stolen Dodge Ram Truck made a sharp left turn. Unfortunately, the Uber driver was unable to react in time and suffered serious personal injury which led to his death at a local hospital. Eyewitnesses report that his passengers, which included several children and a woman who was seated in the front seat, also suffered personal injuries as a result of the impact. Fortunately, none of their injuries were life-threatening despite the woman showing signs of being in extreme pain. Just seconds after the impact, Miami police officers arrived at the scene and arrested the driver of the truck, who is being charged with grand theft auto. The deceased Uber driver had been working for the ride share company since 2014 and according to loved-ones, the deceased Uber driver was a loving and dedicated father who strived to provide the best for his family. Just like all registered motor-vehicles in Florida, Uber and Lyft carry insurance policies that serve to compensate accident victims for their legitimate claims. Furthermore, Uber and Lyft insurance policies can cover up to $1 million in compensation for injury, damage or losses. Thus, The Perazzo Law firm considers it vital for Uber or Lyft passengers, drivers, or other victims to remember that they are legally protected and covered in the event of an accident that involves one of these ride-share companies. We recommend all car accident victims to visit our Car Accident section for insight into PIP coverage and other insurance policies aimed at providing compensation for personal injuries, property damage or loss.
