Do you need a uber accident attorney miami?, here The Good News and Bad News from an Uber Accident Injury Lawyer are now significantly more Uber affiliated vehicles than there are taxi cabs in the United States. That does not even factor in other ride share companies such as Lyft. With all of these additional cars on the road, its not hard to figure out why there are now so many more car accidents involving Uber drivers and passengers. As a Miami Uber accident lawyer who handles car accident cases, we have seen an uptick in all manner of accidents, injuries and lawsuits associated with Uber drivers and their vehicles.

The good news is that Uber insures many of their drivers and vehicles. Thus, in a State like Florida, where there is no mandatory bodily injury insurance requirement (only $10,000 PIP insurance is required by the state) and in particular in Miami-Dade County, where many drivers don’t have any insurance whatsoever or think they are covered when they only buy the PIP minimum, there is recourse if you are injured by a negligent Uber driver. In other words, your Uber car accident lawyer will have someone to to pursue to compensate you for all of the damages caused by the accident, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Whether you are an Uber customer who was injured due to an accident caused by your own Uber driver,or were in your own car and hit by an Uber, there will likely be some form liability insurance to cover the loss. Even if you are an Uber driver and are injured while on a ride by another vehicle, there may also be insurance coverage for you as well. This is because the Uber insurance policy provides Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist coverage in addition to bodily injury coverage. This type of insurance is called UM insurance and protects you when you are injured by a driver who does not have bodily injury coverage or inadequate bodily injury coverage.

Carnival cruise ships accident at Mexico’s Cozumel

6 hurt in Carnival cruise ships accident at Mexico’s Cozumel

Cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Carnival Corporation and Norwegian Cruise Lines are headquartered in Miami, Florida. Most passengers do not realize that the cruise ticket they buy from those big companies is a contract for carriage. The fine print in ticket contract governs where the passenger can bring a lawsuit, called a venue provision.

Most lawsuits against the Cruise lines are required to be brought in Federal District Court in Miami. It also shortens the time in which a lawsuit can be filed down to one year as compared to most land based claims which allow two to four years to bring suit.

Cruise ship operators are large corporations with vast financial resources. They will fight these claims in court, and will not pay attention to smaller claims because they know a lawyer will have to make the proverbial Federal case out of claims.

Attorney Alex Perkins had handled cases against most of the major cruise line operators in Florida including Disney Cruises.

He is familiar with their defense tactics and most of the lawyers on the their side. Mr Perkins has also handled numerous cruise ship injury cases in Federal Court including a crewmember on passenger rape that yielded over $1,700,000 for the victim.

Slip and fall injuries are the most common complaint we come across from passengers, in particular on outdoor decks. Mr. Perkins has conducted extensive discovery and obtained Federal Court orders pertaining to the materials used on the decking of ships and the number of prior falls on thereon.

The cruise lines owe a “duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of its passengers.” See, Hall vs. Royal Caribbean Cruises, Limited, 888 So. 2d 654 (Fla. 3d DCA 2004), 2004 A.M.C. 1913; citing Kermarec v. Compagnie Generale Transatlantique, 358 U.S. 625, 79 S. Ct. 406, 3 L. Ed. 2d 550 (1959); The Moses Taylor, 4 Wall. 411, 71 U.S. 411, 18 L. Ed. 397 (1866); Carlisle v. Ulysses Line Ltd., 475 So. 2d 248 (Fla. 3d DCA 1985).

The cruise lines also owe a “duty to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances”. See, Harnesk vs. Carnival Cruise Lines, Inc, 1992 AMC 1472, 1991 WL 329584 (S. D. Fla. 1991). The cruise line’s “duty is to warn of dangers known to the carrier in places where the passenger is invited to, or may reasonably be expected to visit.” See, Carlisle vs. Ulysses Line Limited, S.A., 475 So. 2d 248 (Fla. 3d DCA 1985). The cruise line has a duty to provide safe ingress and egress to and from the ship.
