Don't Let a Rental Car Accident or Uber Lyft Accident Ruin Your Daytona Beach Spring Break!
Tips From a Florida Spring Break Accident Attorney
Spring break 2023 is here! Here in Daytona Beach - it is a time of fun, sun, and relaxation for college students and young adults alike. However, the excitement of the beaches and parties can quickly turn into a nightmare if you or someone you know is involved in a car accident while on your break.
On Beach Accidents
Daytona Beach is famous for its night life, warm weather, fun beaches, and beach parties. Daytona Beach is unique in that it allows for drivers to take their cars onto the beach itself. This is convenient and fun--but it can also be dangerous. With drivers on the beach, it is possible that a car may hit you while you are just enjoying yourself or, on the flip side, you may hit someone while driving on the beach. This can complicate the situation for a person involved in an accident because it is even harder to determine who is at fault as there are no rules of the road that apply.
Daytona Beach is also very popular with motorcycle enthusiasts. After all, we do host Bike Week every year! If you decide to ride on a motorcycle, rent a motorcycle, or get hit by a motorcycle -- the laws can be a bit different. Our Daytona Beach motorcycle accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Carolina Nunez, P.A. know exactly how to handle a motorcycle accident case.
Uber, Lyft, Rideshare Services, and Rental Cars
A car accident can ruin your Daytona Beach experience and leave you dealing with serious injuries, medical bills, and legal complications. Whether you were in a car accident in your own car, a rental car, Uber, or Lyft--you have legal rights. However, many involved in these types of accidents don't know how to navigate through an insurance claim where there are multiple insurances involved. Did you get additional renter's insurance when you rented the vehicle? Did you use Turo? If so--what insurances do I call to make a claim? These are all important questions that can affect your financial compensation.
