At Fernandez Law Group our attorneys have decades of experience handling Taxi accident claims, including incidents involving newer and alternative means of taxi services such as Lyft and Uber. Because ridesharing is a relatively new industry, many automobile insurance policies may not offer protection for these types of accidents.

The state of Florida requires every driver to carry some form of personal injury protection (PIP) coverage which is common in most car accident cases, but there is an added layer of complexity when it comes to Uber and Lyft cases. Uber, Lyft and even Taxi companies do not always carry PIP coverage. Florida law has excluded these types of taxi companies from our state's no fault insurance law and as a result, you are able file a claim based on physical damages you've sustained without proving whether or not you have been permanently injured or disabled from the accident. The lawyers at Fernandez Law Group understand how to work through these and other difficulties some accident victims may face when filing a claim and recovering a settlement or compensation for their injuries.

Here in Tampa, taxi accidents are common due to the large numbers of people who make use of public transportation services to get around the city and region. A large number of Taxi, Uber & Lyft crashes are due to the negligence of the driver, or another driver on the roadway. The negligence of many drivers often includes speeding, texting while driving, distracted driving, intoxication, and fatigue.

If you have suffered a severe or disabling injury while riding in a Taxi, Uber or Lyft rideshare, you should contact an experienced Tampa taxi accident lawyer immediately following any taxi crash. The attorneys at Fernandez Law Group have the skills needed as well as proven results to help ensure you are properly compensated for your losses.

In fact, it could seriously impair your ability to prevail in a lawsuit. As soon as you contact us, we start our investigation of your case and begin preserving and analyzing critical evidence. As time passes, accident scenes change, eye-witness accounts waver, vehicles are salvaged, tire marks disappear, "black box" and electronically stored data may be erased.

Immediately contacting an attorney gives your law firm the ability to have their investigators visit taxi accident scenes, interview witnesses, inspect vehicular damage, tire marks, tread depth, safety and maintenance logs, driver's licensing, insurance, records and more – all of which can be extremely beneficial.

There are no costs or fees unless we obtain a settlement for you.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, do not try to handle a claim on your own or risk using an inexperienced lawyer. Not all taxi accident lawyers have our commitment to achieving full justice for their clients, nor do they have our trial experience and proven skills.

Taxi accident attorneys are everywhere, but when you come to Fernandez Law Group you can count on our team to work extremely hard to provide you with exceptional representation. We take pride in doing what it takes to earn the proper compensation our clients deserve, no matter how hard the fight.
