Understand that it’s a good idea in many circumstances to utilize a taxi or a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft as a means of getting to and from events where it would be difficult or unsafe to park your car and drive it home.
However, as a passenger, you are very much at the mercy of those drivers when events happen, like in the attached article where a Uber driver tragically died while carrying a fare.
The passengers were unharmed due to their quick thinking, but it is not difficult to see personal injuries resulting from a crash from an out of control motor vehicle because of a medical condition of a driver.
If you’re injured by the actions of a driver- medically induced or not- talk to us at FL Legal Group or call 1-800-984-9951
