You Deserve Compensation for Your Orange City Rideshare Accident
Filing insurance claims and negotiating a fair settlement can be a big challenge after a rideshare accident. Insurance companies may try to undermine your claim by only calculating economic damages—those that have a clear monetary value—and paying you less than what you deserve. It can also be hard to determine which parties are liable since insurance companies may deny liability if evidence is not 100% clear.
The team at Bogin, Munns & Munns can help you calculate all your damages and fight for the amount you deserve. You can claim many damages after a rideshare accident, including:
- Medical expenses
- Future medical costs
- Lost income, including salary, wages, tips, benefits, and bonuses
- Reduced earning potential
- Property damage to your vehicle and/or personal belongings
- Wrongful death and costs for the burial and lost household income support
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Disability and scarring
Our team will identify and pursue all possible sources of compensation. Which parties we can hold liable depends on whether the accident occurred while a rideshare driver was actively using the app. Some sources of compensation we can pursue include all at-fault drivers’ insurance policies, the insurance policy through Uber or Lyft, or another third party.

What to Do If You’ve Been in a Rideshare Accident in Orange City
If you’ve been in a rideshare accident around Orange City, follow these steps while at the scene and after you’ve left to promote a positive outcome in your case:
- Seek medical attention: Call 9-1-1 and get emergency medical services to the scene immediately. Get care for wounds while at the scene. If you’ve already left, you should see a doctor to assess your injuries, even if you feel that your injuries are not severe or you haven’t been injured.
- File a police report: Provide information about the accident to the police. This report is key in filing insurance claims and documents.
- Report the accident to the rideshare company: You should also contact Uber or Lyft to report the accident to them. This can start the formal claims process. If you are a rideshare driver or passenger, you can report an accident through the app. If you were not in an Uber or Lyft at the time of the accident, you must report the accident from their website.
- Swap contact and insurance information: All drivers should provide contact and insurance information to one another. Take down license plate information, too. You’ll need this to file insurance claims.
- Call an Orange City rideshare accident lawyer: As soon as you can, you should consider calling a personal injury lawyer to handle the investigation, claims, and legal tasks so you can focus on recovery.
