Do You Need an Tampa Uber & Lyft Injury Attorney?
There are important differences between ordinary personal injury cases and personal injury cases when a ride-sharing company like Uber or Lyft is involved. When you, a loved one, or a friend have been harmed and a ride-sharing company is involved, you need a personal injury law firm that knows what to do. Our personal injury lawyers are here to help.
Why are Personal Injury Cases Involving Ride-Sharing Companies Different than Other Cases?
Ride-sharing company drivers at companies like Lyft and Uber are not actually company employees. Instead they are independent contractors. In addition, these companies are really not supervising the drivers. Instead they are only using smartphone app technology to connect drivers with passengers. Ride-sharing companies use these facts to claim they are not legally responsible for the harm caused by their drivers. The law firm you hire needs to know how to overcome these arguments.
