Injured While Riding in an Uber or Lyft Vehicle in Tampa, FL
If you get hurt as a rideshare passenger, your injuries will likely be covered by insurance, but whose policy applies -- the at-fault driver's, or the rideshare company's?
The huge growth of ride-sharing means new financial and professional opportunities for many people. It also means an increase in issues not previously considered when it comes to transportation. Before the rise of the sharing economy, if you needed a ride, you hired a taxi or other paid transportation service, or you had a friend or family member drive you. Now, companies such as Uber and Lyft have blurred the lines somewhat.
So if you get hurt as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft-affiliated vehicle that’s involved in a car accident, how will you get compensation for your injuries and other damages? Generally speaking, financial responsibility could come from the insurance company of the at-fault driver -- whether it’s the ride-sharing company’s driver or another driver involved in the accident who caused the crash -- or from Uber or Lyft's own car insurance coverage.
Filing a Lawsuit Against Uber or Lyft Directly
According to Uber and Lyft, their drivers are not employees, but rather, independent contractors. This is an important distinction because employees have more rights than independent contractors -- such as the right to unemployment benefits -- and a company is likely to be legally responsible for the negligence of its employees, but not that of its independent contractors.
If the ride-sharing driver was responsible for the accident, you can try to argue that the ride-sharing company shares some level of blame for the crash, but this will be a difficult argument to make since Uber and Lyft have worked extremely hard to maintain the currently-accepted legal standard that Uber and Lyft drivers are independent contractors, not employees.
And keep in mind that because recovery against Uber or Lyft's insurance coverage is probably an option for you -- whether through the company's $1 million liability coverage, or through its $1 million UIM coverage -- if you're injured in a ride-sharing vehicle, going after the company directly is probably a last (and hopefully unnecessary) resort.

I recently hired Jon as an attorney and had an overall amazing experience. He worked in a professional and efficient manner. He is an exceptional attorney, and someone I highly recommend to all!
- John Crotty. 0/28/2020
John Hackworth and the entire team at Hackworth Law PA is fantastic, in every sense of the word. He's successfully resolved two issues for me that I can think of just in 2019. I'm actually a lawyer and have our offices upstairs from John. I've referred John a number of cases, all with amazing results and feedback. I've also seen John numerous times at the various courthouses around Tampa and Pinellas and Pasco; he's a true trial lawyer and zealous advocate, which is rare to find, but refreshing no doubt. John is also a great human being, always positive and upbeat; great to know as a person and as a lawyer. Thank you, John - keep up the great work!

- Farileyme Farileyme. 0/24/2020
I had an unfortunate experience recently and Jon Hackworth was highly recommended to hire as my criminal defense attorney. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy and dedicated to his clients. He was never judgmental but rather displayed kindness and concern for my well being which was invaluable to me at the time. He retuned my calls and emails promptly with good solid advice. His staff was very professional and always courteous. I highly recommend Jon Hackworth because he not only is an outstanding attorney he genuinely cares.
- T T. 0/14/2020
I initially worked with Jon as a prosecutor when he began work as a criminal defense attorney. Although we did not interact much at that time, his reputation preceded him; he was well-known around the courthouse for his diligence, vast legal knowledge, and exceptional trial skill. Even the strictest of judges appreciated his positive attitude, work ethic, and, of course, sense of humor. Now, years later, as a fellow defense attorney, I have the good fortune of working with Jon regularly. He has most certainly maintained his reputation, but the circle of attorneys and former clients who admire and respect Jon continues to grow. He is a man of his word, both as an advocate and a colleague. I would refer (and have referred) the closest of friends and family to Jon without reservation. I would give him more than 5 stars if I could.
- Tracey Sticco. 0/9/2020
Great attorney with a very positive attitude. I was involved in a hit and run and did not know what to do or who to call. My husband said, Babe let’s call John. After knowing all the great things John did for my husband it was easy to make the decision to have him represent me. Thank you for everything
- Amarilis Torres. 0/4/2020
Great guy, very honest and up front. Highly recommended. Thank you for everything John
- Shane Dellus. 0/4/2020
Jon Hackworth is awesome! I was a few days away from leaving the country for my homey moon for a few weeks and by sending one text message, Jon got everything handled! Easy. Fast. Affordable. No points. Hire him if you want stuff handled properly and easily.
- Ravit Family. 11/5/2019
Jon Hackworth is a great lawyer. Exceptionally bright, and well versed in the law. His offices are very nice, and his staff wonderful to deal with. All in all, a thumbs up!
- John Hermes. 10/18/2019
Jon Hackworth is an excellent lawyer which probably is why he's so busy. :) He did a fantastic job representing my brother in his child support case. He presented logical facts, figures, and explanation to the judge who by the looks of it was jaded by the hoards of fathers not paying their support. Without Jon, my brother would have been sucked in and spit out of the system that favors the mothers and assumes the fathers are the bad ones. In this case, the mother is on prescription drugs and suffers from a psychosis from them. She had made so many threats and spewed so much hatred. Thank goodness the judge along with Jon were able to see the truth. My brother received fair and just treatment with a satisfied outcome, great thanks to Jon Hackworth, super lawyer.
- Jo Smith. 10/8/2019
John has been an absolute pleasure to work with. He is extremely communicative and honest. Be it via phone or text he always gets back to you extremely quickly. I highly recommend John as he gets the job DONE!
- Lawrence Kalgstein. 10/6/2019
The Hackworth Law Group and Jon Hackworth are an absolute pleasure to work with! Jon is smart, cares about his clients, and gets the job done. I absolutely endorse this firm and would go back to Jon should the need arise at any time. Thanks Jon!
- Tamara Hermes. 8/30/2019
Jon Hackworth has been a absolute pleasure to work with. He not only genuinely cares about his client, he's amazing in the court room and worked far beyond my expectations. Everything I wanted through my divorce was granted due to Mr.Hackworths hard work and knowledge. Thanks Jon for all that you've accomplished for me.
- Vanessa Bufkin. 8/17/2019
Called in and had my issue taken care of in roughly 45min, cradle to grave. No BS or run around. Quick and easy. Why pay the court to mishandle your issue when you can pay about the same amount to have it quickly and effectively taken care of.
- Benjamin Bunn. 8/9/2019
Jon and his team offer the highest quality representation regarding family law matters. Jon is honest and upfront with his clients throughout the entire process. His clients needs are always a top priority and he goes above and beyond to deliver the best results possible in difficult situations. I hope for now, I will no longer need his services but, family law doesn't end the day the divorces does. I know who to call if anything comes up in the future.
- randi bergman. 7/21/2019
Jon was a godsend for me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Not only was he able to defend me from an unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor eased my mind. I am eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr Hackworth without reservation.
- J T. 7/13/2019
I hired Mr. Hackworth to handle my DUI case and it turned out to be the best decision! The DUI process as many of us know, is very frustrating and painful. Mr.Hackworth assisted me through it with ease, answering my questions and concerns without any issues. It felt good to know I hired an attorney that genuinely cared about the outcome of my case and made decisions that resulted in the best possible outcome- my DUI was reduced and I got my license back! I’d recommend him to anyone with big cases or small cases. This guy knows his stuff !

On April 10th I was burdened with the sudden need for legal aid. I was very scared and my view of my future was unknown. I begin reaching out to local attorneys and seeking advice from friends and family in the area. As per a referral that I am forever grateful to, I sought the aid of Mr. Hackworth. By April 19th he had set my mind to ease about my case and instilled my peace of mind. Mr. Hackworth has been such a blessing to myself and now my family. Since our acquaintance Mr. Hackworth has handled multiple cases for us and rightfully made the law hold accountable to it’s just cause. His legal advice is well thought and he covers everything with you clearly so you understand.He makes sure you are well prepared and he keeps you informed. He is easily contacted and returns calls promptly. His prices are fair and his services are exceptional. I will refer Mr. Hackworth in the future and I will also continue to use his services if in need.
- Brittanny Edwards. 11/6/2018
Jon is an outstanding attorney. He handled my case very friendly, yet, very professional, he always responded quickly to me and my family with any questions or concerns we may have had. When I was first arrested, Mr.Hackworth was called on a Sunday, while he was on vacation, asking if he could represent me.( A friend had referred my husband to Mr. Hackworth.) He worked quickly to get me a bond as I stood with no bond on several charges with a bond reduction , He worked diligently to have my case closed as quickly as possible, leaving me free and happy. We will give his name to anyone who needs an attorney. We can't thank him enough!

- Benjamin Lord. 7/29/2018
Jon was my attorney for my divorce. As soon as I read his reviews and spoke with him about my case I knew he was the attorney I wanted to respresent me. Going through a divorce is an emotional roller coaster. Jon was always my voice of reason and assurance. He was responsive and accessible throughout my entire 1 year 3 month journey. He is a down to earth guy that is very relatable and makes you feel comfortable in even the most uncomfortable times. During my trial he was aggressive and confident and just what we needed for a good result. I would without a doubt have him represent again if ever needed.
- Cayla Leeg. 7/10/2018
I've been using their services since I moved to Tampa about 4 years ago. Outstanding services,! Very professional, extremely helpful. I will never use any other service other than them and will continue to refer them to anyone I know. They get the job done right!!!!!
- Julie Garcia. 6/9/2018
I would definitely recommend Hackworth Law . Jon was very helpful when I needed guidance . He was great from start of my case to end, He really knows exactly how things will work out . I wish I knew Jon when I was going through, My divorce problems I was really stressed before I knew him, now I can feel that I have someone to trust if anything wrong goes on in my life, He fought for me when I could not fight for myself. after my divorce there will always be a question, To ask or need but Jon is always there to answer my question . If anyone is looking for a good good lawyer I command Jon he is always there to help .
- Sanah Joseph. 5/28/2018
Jonathan is very personal and puts his clients first. He has the ability to empathize with his clients while excuting in their needs. Jonathan communicates frequently with his clients and coaches along the way
- Christopher Fils. 5/3/2018
Reliable, persistent ,and knowledgeable are the words that best describe Jon. Throughout the duration of case, he communicated clearly , attended hearings, and used his expertise to get the results I hoped for. It was a pleasure working with him. He was referred to me through a family member and I'm glad I made that call .
- fils olivia. 4/31/2018
I hired Jon in Nov-16 and it was a very enjoyable experience, even though it was a crappy time in my life. Jon was knowledgeable, friendly, and swift. He answered every question I had (there were A LOT) and responded to communications (text/email/calls) immediately. I truly felt like he cared about me and not just my case.
I highly recommend Hackworth Law.
- Leslie Owen. 4/16/2018

Jon was very helpful when we needed guidance in a family court order situation that had changed over time. He asked questions and took his time in understanding the current status and gave us advice a in a clear and helpful manner. We are very thankful that he was recommended to us. Great attorney and very nice. In the end we had to go back to the state that the order was done, but Jon didn't leave us hanging or walking blindly. He helped refer us to a person that could stand for us and knew the law. Thank you so much!
- Caroline Lowie. 0/17/2018
I was facing jail time undoubtedly for my charge if i was to face a judge without Jon Hackworth. Im today so thankful for his services i am still home and all my charges were dropped. he kept in good contact with me and was very straight with me as to the consequences of what i had done. how he did what he did is beyond me, but the fact is he definitely is the best lawyer hands done i have ever hired... hopefully i don't need a lawyer again. but mr Hackworth is the first one i will call...
- Tony Annunziato. 0/16/2018
He was great from start to finish. Really knows about the law and knows exactly how things will work out. I remember being so scared at first about all of this but he really helped my case and reassured me along the way. I appreciated his honesty & knowledge about my case. Always answers his texts and phone calls, which i appreciated since i and a lot of questions. He's really dedicated to his job & I would recommend him to anyone that is having legal issues.
- emily salce. 11/22/2017
Finding Jon Hackworth was literally the answer to a prayer. By the time I realized I needed an attorney, I was already way behind. I really did not think I stood a chance. But thanks to Jon's guidance
and extremely smart strategies, not only did I "catch up", I achieved what
I needed to get done. A couple of observations. First and foremost, Jon is an outstanding attorney. He's honest, he's principled, and he's patient (so important when you're dealing with sometimes-emotional people like me 😁). he's extremely hard-working, and he's extremely knowledgeable. He fought for me when I could not fight for myself. On a personal level, he genuinely cares. He is kind and compassionate - there was no doubt that he truly cared about my case. I will be forever grateful that Jon Hackworth came into my life. He'll be my first call if I ever find myself needing legal advice or representation in the future. I recommend him very highly.
- Priscilla Glascock. 11/20/2017
A few years ago we needed a lawyer, and we were having a hard time finding one that we could afford after we had paid a large sum of money to another firm; they ended up dropping the ball. Mr. Hackworth took not only took our case, he took took it for a nominal fee and allowed us to make payments on to boot! Considering that Mr. Hackworth came in at almost the tail end of our case; he did a fantastic job! Highly Recommended!
- Liberty Belle. 11/12/2017
Amazing Attorney!! Extremely smart and will get the results you want. He is very responsive which is hard to find nowadays. Hackworth Law also has a very friendly and professional staff. I would definitely recommend Jon.
- Nichole Brewer. 11/11/2017
It is with great delight I write this review to share my wonderful experience with Hackwork Law. I was recommended by a friend of mine who has used them on numerous occasions. I must admit that I was extremely skeptical at first. My situation involved an accident where my father made a left turn and was hit head on by a vehicle with the lights off. It was at night and the oncoming vehicle was not visible. My dad ended up getting the ticket, and we felt that this was not fair. Mr. Hackworth took our case and represented us in court. His fees were very reasonable (extremely reasonable), and he communicated often and promptly all the way throughout the process. He was able to get our case dismissed. I would give my HIGHEST recommendation for his services as he didnt hit us over the head during such a stressful time. I just wish I knew about him sooner.
- Kit Jeerapaet. 11/8/2017
I referred a close friend with a serious criminal matter to Jon. He took care of everything, and the case was resolved. Jon made my friend feel comfortable and established the trust that someone needs to have in their attorney. I would not hesitate to send anyone to Jon.
- Richard Mockler. 11/7/2017
Great service from a top notch attorney. Helped me with my case and was on top of everything that needed to be handled. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that needs and attorney.

Easy to get in contact with, quick response time and very friendly!
- Stephanie Rivera. 9/24/2017
Jon and his team were wonderful to work with. I recently went through a divorce and they worked around my work schedule and picking up my daughter from daycare every time to make sure someone was available to meet with me when I had any kind of paperwork to get to them. He is very responsive and even got back to me after hours when there were a couple emergencies that happened. I highly recommend Jon and can say I interviewed 5 attorneys before choosing him. He got me exactly what I ask for.
- Cally Hendrick. 9/21/2017

He was also responsive and attentive - grateful to know Mr. Hackworth!
- taylore Harris. 9/9/2017
Let's face it; needing an attorney means something is or has most likely gone wrong in your life. Hiring an attorney who can mitigate the wrong is vital. When my landlord refused to refund my deposit as required by law, I contacted Mr. Hackworth. He charged minimal fees and completed work above and beyond. There is no doubt I will contact him for future assistance. Thank you again Mr. Hackworth!
- Kristy Bush. 7/31/2017

Thanks for all your help Hackworth Law, YOU GUYS ROCK...

Affordable, Hard Working, and Aggressive best sums up The Hackworth Law Firm. For the amount of work that Jon did I would have paid double at another firm. Jon was the hardest working and most aggressive attorney I have ever hired. If you are going to court, you had better have an aggressive lawyer and that is Jon Hackworth. He also, is easy to talk to and will communicate with you on a regular basis. He cares about people and has a heart. THE BEST LAWYER AROUND!!!

This was my first experience hiring an attourney, and it couldn't have went more perfect. I'm not very savvy with the legal system, but Mr. hackworth kept everything seamless as he got me a favorable result. He was very knowledgeable and made things easy to understand, as well as courtesy and personable. Very easy to reach, and keep in contact with, as he kept me updated throughout the entire process. I found him through his peers, and I would recommend him to anyone needing legal help, even if it's just consultation.

Absolutely awesome attorney, no other way to describe it. If you have a ticket, or any kind of traffic violation, I couldn't think of anyone else to go through other than Jon Hackworth. Process was very smooth and quick. Not at any point in the process did I feel lost, he literally took over from day 1, and got me off of everything. If you are looking for someone to take care of your traffic violation, or anything for that matter, Jon Hackworth is your guy!

I have used other attorneys for similar matters , and never had better results.
Excellent correspondence before the hearing, and extremely effective in court.
I will not hesitate to call on his services again.
Solid "10" for satisfaction !

You never want to be in a situation where you need an attorney, but if you ever do, Hackworth LAW is the place to call first. I had nothing but the absolute best experience dealing with Mr. Hackworth and his team. He started working on my issue quickly and it was resolved within a matter of days. He always kept me in the loop and was truthful throughout the process. I've never been in the know and able to communicate with my attorney like the Hackworth Law PA team. I couldn't have asked for a better, more knowledgeable attorney to handle my issue. I hope to never have to use him again, but the Hackworth Law phone number is stored in my phone just in case.

Mr. Hackworth is the man, really took care of me till the end and was always there when I needed to voice concerns I had regarding my case. I highly recommend him, he did a great job with my case and all in all was a really down to earth guy. If you're looking for a lawyer look no further!

If you're looking for a divorce or criminal defense attorney in Tampa, you couldn't pick anyone better than Hackworth Law. Our experience with this firm and Jonathan Hackworth, specifically, has been incredible. There is no good time for legal trouble - but a month before our wedding made it EXTREMELY stressful. His staff was pleasant and Mr. Hackworth called us back the same day, began working on our case immediately, and resolved our issue in a week...A WEEK! That's unheard of.
He is an aggressive and effective attorney who is NOT rude or intimidating to his clients; you can't go wrong with Hackworth Law for your divorce or criminal defense needs.
We hope to never need him in the future...but he is permanently stored in speed dial if we do. We'd never use anyone else. Highly recommend.

My experience with Hackworth Law was outstanding he immediately took my case and kept me informed through out the whole ordeal. He was very knowledgeable and showed he was experience with handling my case. He was fair and flexible with his payment options. He explained to me what had to be completed outside of court to on my end to better assist him and myself. all in all i would definitely use him again (hopefully i wont have to) and recommend him to others so they can experience his great service.

I can't say enough about Jonathan Hackworth. Until now I have never needed the expertise of a lawyer and I am thankful every day that I have Jon representing me. Of course the people he works with are all true professionals but to me it's the attention and the care that you are given personally by him that sets his work above others. I always felt informed and aware of our goals in the process and on many occasions he was available to answer my questions to just put my mind at ease. I think for me, for so many reasons, there are many lawyers that you can find but you will not find another with his patience, his understanding, his knowledge, and even his charisma. In the end he is just that much better.

This law firm truly cares about its community and its clients. They are in the heart of historic ybor city and are quick to contribute to the betterment of the area. They are very easy to deal with and work with its clients. As a local business owner I have been sending them clients over the last year and have not heard of one complaint. They are not ambulance chasers and will treat you fairly from a speeding ticket, to major case they do it all. Keep up the good work!

If you are looking for an excellent lawyer who will handle your case with diligence, intelligence and importance, Mr. Hackworth is your man! I found myself in a traffic incident earlier this year, and when I needed the guidance of a experienced lawyer, I was referred to John Hackworth. I was very impressed with my experience, and I would recommend him as a lawyer to help defend any incident, whether traffic or something else.

I went through a very difficult divorce, but had the best attorneys on my team to help me get through it! Blumenauer Hackworth is certainly the best law firm in Tampa!

Great attorney. I needed him for an issue with a bum tenant and he gave sound advice. I hope to never need him again but glad to know he is there if I do.
- T Barnes. 1/15/2015
Jon handled a few legal matters for me ranging from traffic tickets to a car accident. My ticket was dismissed and I was very pleased with the settlement from the car accident. I highly recommend him. His staff is also very receptive to the needs of clients and telephone calls are always returned.

Jon Hackworth is a very quality guy to work with, his office has a very friendly, welcoming vibe! I would trust him with any legal matter that came my way.

A few years ago today, my child's mother threatened to abandon state with our toddler. I filed the necessary paperwork in the courthouse pro se. Eventually, she did leave the state with child without my permission. I hired a local attorney who represented me during several mediations to reestablish my relationship with my daughter. The mother eventually decided to not mediate further and my attorney was a bit sluggish to react. I decided to fire her and consult with other attorneys. Mr. Hackworth was 1 out of 4 local attorneys. Each attorney offered trial representation at an expensive rate. Some attorneys did not speak with me and requested consultation fees. Mr. Hackworth contacted me and offered pre-trial and trial representation at a very affordable rate. To be honest, the low rate caused skepticism and hesitation at first. After further online research, I could not find anything negative. I am glad I decided to hire attorney Hackworth. He is personable, he does not make you feel rushed, he conducts business using his own cell phone which is extraordinary and that is not all, Mr. Hackworth assisted me in winning majority custody of my daughter. As a father, most people doubted the possibility of this outcome for the last two years of my life. Attorney Hackworth made this possible. Do not hesitate to hire him, he is affordable, caring and very knowledgeable.
