How Our Orange County Law Firm Can Handle Your Orlando Uber Accident Case
After an accident, you may face many challenges to your health, finances, and livelihood. Our team can step in and handle the legal process. While it may seem straightforward to add up the cost of your losses and request that amount from an insurance provider, many factors can affect the outcome of your case.
Here are some of the ways in which we can support you:
We Can File Your Case Within Florida’s Statute of Limitations
While it is likely that you will settle your case through negotiations with the insurance company, your case may come to a standstill. In this instance, we can file a lawsuit against the negligent party and bring your case to trial.
To file a lawsuit, your case must be in compliance with the state’s statute of limitations. Per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you generally have four years to file your injury lawsuit and two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
Some aspects of your situation could extend the amount of time you have to act. Certain exceptions are listed under Florida Statutes § 95.051. Your lawyer can explain whether any of these exceptions apply to your circumstances.
We Can Evaluate Your Losses
After being hurt in a collision, you may have a wide range of injury-related expenses. Medical care alone can put a family into debt. Accident-related losses may also include:
- Future medical expenses
- Lost income, tips, and commissions
- Lost employee benefits
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Physical or cognitive disability
- Funeral expenses
- Physical therapy and mental health counseling
Your lawyer will determine a fair value for your case, one that encompasses the full scope of your past, present, and future losses.

We Can Gather Information to Support Your Orlando Uber Accident Case
Every strong case is built on strong evidence. We could use the following information to support the cause of your injuries and the cost of your damages:
Information from the App
Data from the rideshare app can show the time and date of your collision. It can also identify the rideshare driver and what car they were driving.
The Police Report
Per Florida Statutes § 316.066, you are required to file a police report if anyone was hurt or injured in a collision. You must also notify law enforcement if any car required towing. The police report in your case could include information regarding fault, the involved insurance carriers, and your injuries.
We recommend getting a copy of your police report from the City of Orlando if you have not already done so.
Traffic Camera Footage
Some of Orlando’s roadways are outfitted with traffic cameras because of the population density. A traffic camera could have footage of your accident. This could play a critical role in determining who (or what) caused the collision.
Your Medical Records
Seeing a doctor is paramount not only for your health but also for your case for compensation. Our Orlando Uber accident attorneys can use your medical records to establish your losses, including future medical expenses. For example, if you suffered a permanent impairment, you may require ongoing medical treatment. You shouldn’t have to foot the bill for these losses due to another party’s negligence.
We can also use your medical documents to prevent an insurer from trying to undervalue or deny your claim. Make sure you follow through with your prescribed treatment plan and make your doctor’s appointments.

You Could File an Insurance Claim After Your Orlando Uber Accident
Uber has implemented similar insurance policies for when their drivers are involved in accidents. These coverages vary depending on the circumstances of your accident with the rideshare driver.
For instance, the following scenarios could be relevant when you file an insurance claim. These coverages will be applicable whether you were injured as an Uber passenger, a pedestrian, another driver, or a cyclist.
Your Options If the Rideshare Driver was Completing a Request
An on-duty driver who was actively shuttling a passenger is usually covered by Uber’s insurance policies. This coverage has high maximums for bodily injury and property damage costs. Uber could cover up to $1,000,000 in third-party liability coverage.
Your Options If the Rideshare Driver Did Not Have a Passenger
In this scenario, you could first file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier. If the driver’s insurer denies your claim, Uber’s insurance policies could apply.
Your Options If the Rideshare Driver Was Not Using the App
An off-duty driver will not receive coverage from Uber’s insurance policies. As such, an accident with an off-duty driver will involve the driver’s personal insurance coverage.
A rideshare accident attorney from Bogin, Munns & Munns can identify which insurance policies could help your situation.

Florida’s No-Fault Insurance Laws Could Affect Your Uber Accident Case
In Florida, the state’s no-fault insurance requirements mean that in the event of a collision, you will first file a claim with your own insurance carrier. From there, your financial recovery options will rest on the type of policy you purchased and what is covered.
Typically, you can only file a claim with another insurance provider if you suffered serious injuries. Some serious injuries could include limited sensation in parts of the body, disfigurement, or long-term cognitive impairments.
Our firm can tell you more about whether your case meets the serious injury threshold and what options you have.
