We Help You Take Legal Action Against Negligent Parties
Uber and Lyft accidents can involve a wide range of circumstances. You could have been a third-party motorist, paying customer, or pedestrian.

Uber or Lyft
City of Largo
State of Florida
Other liable parties
Contact our Largo Uber/Lyft accident lawyers as soon as possible if you have legal questions. We can investigate your claim and determine if you have grounds to pursue negligent parties. If so, Salter, Healy, Rivera & Heptner will handle the negotiation from start to finish without any form of advance payment should you decide to hire our team.
Uber/Lyft Provides Coverage Where Applicable
Establishing fault might be difficult. On the one hand, if a third-party driver causes the collision, their insurer may be liable. On the other hand, if you were a passenger of a negligent Uber or Lyft driver, you file a claim against the rideshare insurance policy or through their motor vehicle insurance policy.
Determining liability for your injuries requires our Largo Uber/Lyft accident lawyers to consider the following:
Whether the driver was logged into the app
If you were being picked up as a customer
If you were a third-party vehicle
Other relevant details
Both Uber and Lyft use this information when providing insurance coverage to passengers and third-party motorists. In the event of an accident, both Uber and Lyft provide up to $1 million in coverage, but only when drivers have a passenger in the vehicle or are on their way to pick one up. If you are eligible for coverage, Salter, Healy, Rivera & Heptner will negotiate for medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering (if applicable), punitive damages (rare), and future losses.
