As Florida's HB 221 Takes Effect, Uber Car Accident Law Launches with Answers

New website is full of information for ridesharing passengers and drivers, and has already helped many visitors, Uber Car Accident Law reports

Ridesharing has become a regular feature of everyday life for millions of people, both passengers and those who drive. Thanks to the launch of the new Uber Car Accident Law website, drivers and riders will find it easier than ever before to learn about their rights, responsibilities, and legal options.

From detailing what Florida's recently signed HB 221 statute means for ridesharing drivers, to what to do after an Uber or Lyft accident, the new site is full of helpful information and advice. Website visitors can also easily request a free case evaluation from an experienced Uber Driver Defense Attorney or Uber Car Accident Lawyer in order to make sure their interests will be protected.

"Miami ranks among the most active markets for Uber, Lyft, and other ridesharing companies, with a number of other cities in Florida also doing brisk business," said Uber Car Accident Law co-founder and Attorney Jason Neufeld. "While ridesharing can be an extremely convenient way to get around or make some money as a driver, the relative novelty of this type of service means that it's not always well understood. Our new website is designed to make it as simple as possible to learn about all the legal and other implications of ridesharing for both drivers and passengers. Early response to the site has been extremely positive, and we're glad that so many visitors have already found it helpful."

When transportation networking company Uber officially launched in San Francisco in 2011, it did so as an essentially unprecedented type of business. With Uber drivers working not as employees or sole proprietors but contractors paid by the individual ride, transportation service laws and regulations nationwide rarely anticipated such arrangements.

Since then, and as ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft have continued to grow, states, counties, and cities around the United States have sought to legitimize and regulate this relatively new style of service. Last May, for example, Miami-Dade commissioners signed an ordinance that, for the first time, made the ridesharing business model legal throughout the county. Beginning July 1, Florida statute HB 221 will govern the operation of ridesharing companies statewide, following upon Governor Rick Scott's May 9 signing of the bill.

With the legal questions surrounding ridesharing in Florida therefore now being settled, Uber Car Accident Law has launched to make it easier to learn about all the related issues. Site visitors will find many helpful, up-to-date resources already available, with more to follow in the future. Visitors can also easily request a free, no-obligation case evaluation from a Lyft and Accident Attorney in Miami or other experienced lawyer.
