How Our Melbourne Car Accident Attorneys Help You After an Uber Accident
An accident involving an Uber vehicle can be complicated when it comes to insurance, but our car accident lawyers help you sort out where Florida’s no-fault insurance (personal injury protection or PIP) ends, and the liable party’s insurance begins.
Uber specifies how its insurance works in a rideshare accident, depending on who caused the accident:
- If the Uber driver was on the way to pick up passengers or driving with passengers, Uber’s insurance might cover damages.
- If the Uber driver was on the app and available to take ride requests but did not yet have passengers, Uber’s insurance may cover damages if the driver’s personal insurance does not.
- If the Uber driver is not on the app, their personal insurance may cover damages in an accident.
Our accident attorneys are here to fight by your side and work toward appropriate compensation on your behalf. Toward that end, we:
- Investigate the accident by noting weather and road conditions, gathering official reports and visual media of the incident, and reviewing physical data
- Identify liable party or parties
- Communicate with all involved parties on your behalf
- Negotiate with the insurance company or companies for a fair financial settlement
- Prepare for trial and represent you in court if we cannot reach an out-of-court settlement

Florida’s Statute of Limitations Applies to Your Uber Rideshare Case
In Florida, you generally have two years from the accident date to file a lawsuit for damages. Exceptions may apply, but that is not a guarantee. We recommend calling our team as soon as possible after your Uber accident to protect your rights to compensation.
It is helpful to file sooner rather than later for at least a couple of reasons:
- Witnesses’ memories are sharp, and the evidence remains available
- Receiving compensation as soon as possible to offset unexpected bills is critical to your financial security

Accident Insurance in Florida
Florida is a “no-fault” state. This requires every licensed Florida driver to carry a minimum of $10,000 in personal injury Protection (PIP) insurance and $10,000 in property damage liability (PDL).
No matter who is at fault for the accident, PIP and PDL cover a percentage of your medical expenses and lost income and a certain amount of the vehicle and property damage costs. It also covers a percentage of costs for passengers and pedestrians. However, depending on the type and severity of your injuries, you may not be limited to PIP, but you may be able to file a lawsuit or liability claim against the responsible party or parties.
