Than Four Combined Decades
Dedicated Rideshare Accident Attorneys in Orlando, Florida
Our rideshare accident lawyers in Orlando understand just how much our residents count on rideshare services each day. With nearly 285,000 people living in Orlando, it is often easier — and less expensive — to request an Uber or Lyft driver to take them to the airport, shopping, dining, or other entertainment venues to avoid traffic and costly parking fees.
Our Orange County rideshare accident attorneys also know that our city is also home to multiple conference facilities and theme parks, hosting the largest number of visitors to Florida each year resulting in tourism being the largest private employer in the Orlando area.
Before the pandemic in 2020, Orlando would see an average of over 75 million visitors each year. Visit Orlando estimated there were 59.3 million visitors to Orlando last year, still eclipsing other cities in the state.
When a city sees tens of millions of visitors each year, rideshare drivers flock to the area to gain their share of the revenue from crowds that do not have their own vehicles on hand, and those that want to avoid the dangers of driving in an unknown city.
Unfortunately, when negligence is a factor, rideshare drivers and their passengers are just as likely to be involved in a collision with injuries as other drivers.
If you have been injured in an accident as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, or as a third-party driver, our skilled rideshare lawyers in Orlando, Florida can help you pursue the proper party — or combination of parties — for your full financial recovery.

Who Can Be Held Liable for a Rideshare Accident with Injuries in Orlando, Florida
Like all vehicle collisions in Florida, an Orlando rideshare accident can be caused by one driver or multiple parties.
They may include:
- A negligent rideshare driver who is distracted, impaired, speeding, disobeying traffic signs or signals, or otherwise driving recklessly.
- Another negligent driver who is distracted, impaired, speeding, disobeying traffic signs or signals, or otherwise driving recklessly crashes into the rideshare driver.
- Another third party whose negligence led to the crash of two or more vehicles.
Our Orlando rideshare accident attorneys will review the facts and circumstances surrounding the collision and investigate all potentially liable parties to ensure our injured client has access to the maximum financial recovery available under the applicable insurance coverage(s).

When they place profits over safety, everyone on our Orlando roadways is in danger.
