You Have a Limited Time to File a Lawsuit in Florida
According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you generally have four years to file a lawsuit. You have less time (two years) to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Keep in mind that this may be the best option for pursuing compensation, especially if insurance matters get complicated.

A Settlement or Verdict Can Help with Your Recovery
You deserve to recover compensation that addresses your injuries. Beginning medical treatment as soon as possible can help you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI), but this care is expensive. You should not have to foot the bill if someone else caused your accident.

- Immediate medical treatment, such as ambulatory care and surgeries
- Ongoing medical care, such as prescription medications and specialist visits
- In-home aid
- Home modifications
- Medical equipment
- Lost wages
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering

We can calculate both your economic and non-economic damages to ensure you seek fair compensation. We can consult your physicians, specialists, and other medical experts to substantiate your claim.

What Makes Uber/ Lyft Rideshare Accidents Unique?
Unlike other auto accidents, rideshare accidents involve unique circumstances. For instance, if you suffered harm as another motorist, you can file a claim with your own insurance provider. Matters change if you were hurt as a passenger. There, you could:
File a Claim With the Rideshare Company’s Insurer
If the rideshare driver was logged into the app, you can usually make a claim with the rideshare company’s insurer. Specifically, their provider would be liable if:
- The driver was en route to a destination with a passenger.
- The driver was on their way to pick up a passenger.
- The driver was idling, waiting to pair up with a passenger.

Uber and Lyft’s Policy Limits
At any covered time, both Uber and Lyft provide the following policy limits for its drivers waiting to pair up with passengers:
- $50,000 for bodily injury (per person)
- $100,000 for bodily injury (per accident)
- $25,000 for property damage (per accident)
This coverage usually kicks in after the driver exhausts their personal insurance coverage. If the driver is en route to pick up a passenger or on an active trip, the company’s insurance covers:
- Up to $1,000,000 in third-party liability
- Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury and/or first-party injury insurance
- Contingent comprehensive and collision, usually up to the actual cash value of the car with a $2,500 deductible
When a Driver’s Personal Insurance Applies
For both rideshare companies, drivers must use their personal insurance coverage whenever the app is off. Still, insurers can give you a tough time, especially when the driver is waiting to match up with a passenger. Insurers can go back and forth, denying liability and claims.
When this happens, our Gainesville Uber/Lyft rideshare accidents attorneys can step in on your behalf. We can conduct our own investigation into the collision to determine fault. We can then use evidence to counter an adjuster’s findings and counter an undervalued or denied claim.
We’re Prepared to Address Each of Your Case’s Challenges
Our firm has decades of experience advocating for injured people. During that time, we’ve managed many challenges – some of which our clients thought were insurmountable.
We are ready to help if:
- The insurance company denies your claim.
- The rideshare company disputes liability.
- The at-fault driver impedes the legal process.
- You’re not sure what your damages are worth.
- You’re unsure of how to file a claim.
With evidence, we can counter each of these challenges and pursue what you need.
