Delray Beach Uber Accidents

Attorneys Frankl & Kominsky and Delray Beach Uber AccidentsUber Accidents

Delray Beach, Florida is a popular destination for tourists and South Florida residents alike, and is a consistent winner of awards such as the most fun small town in America and one of America's happiest seaside towns. It is home to about 64,000 full-time residents - and 62,000 annual visitors - situated between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, and has retained its small-town feel even in the face of its exploding popularity. The heart of Delray is Atlantic Avenue, home to unique restaurants and shops, which ends at the wide sand beaches of the Atlantic. Delray boasts extensive live entertainment every night of the week, and hosts almost non-stop festivals during "season," from October to April. The St. Patrick's Day Parade, Christmas Tree and Menorah Lighting and Parade, and Delray's Art Festival are only a few of the many ongoing events served up by the City.

Uber Use in Delray Beach

While visitors delight in all things Delray, the massive popularity of the City means many call on Uber to deliver them to Delray destinations. Relying on Uber removes the issue of parking in Delray, which can be difficult, and eliminates the need for a designated driver. Uber was officially approved to operate in Palm Beach County last April, making the ride-sharing company even more accessible for Delray visitors. On any given day, Uber drivers and their passengers are visible in Delray, driving to and from restaurants, bars, shops and, of course, the beach.

Risks of Uber

But using Uber is not without risks. The explosion of Uber drivers on the roads of Delray Beach also raises the chances of accidents involving Uber vehicles. In South Florida, there are more than 10,000 registered Uber drivers, who have provided millions of rides to passengers. The sheer volume of traffic in Delray Beach on every day of the year makes the probability of crashes in the area even more likely. Furthermore, as an increasing number of passengers take advantage of the Uber ride-sharing service, collisions involving Uber drivers are growing. Uber crashes can impact passengers, pedestrians, other drivers, and even property-owners and businesses in Delray Beach.

Accidents involving Uber drivers can be complicated, and require involvement of experienced accident attorneys like Frankl & Kominsky to resolve the issues. Uber drivers are independent contractors, which means that each Uber driver is responsible for his or her own insurance. Only in rare cases is Uber itself responsible for paying damages resulting from an Uber accident. Because Uber requires individual drivers to carry $1 million liability insurance and $1 million in uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, a skilled attorney consulted immediately after an Uber accident may be able to obtain full compensation for someone injured from an Uber crash. This compensation could include medical costs, loss of income due to injuries, and pain and suffering.
