We Take Car Accident Cases on Contingency

We know the time following a car accident can be stressful and challenging, so we strive to make seeking compensation as easy as possible for you and your loved ones. We charge injury clients nothing up front or out of pocket, so our services will not add to your financial burden. Instead, our fees come from your successful settlement or verdict, and we do not get paid unless we win your case.

Additionally, our attorneys get results. Our team includes members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum – prestigious organizations open only to lawyers who have achieved million-dollar-plus settlements or verdicts.

We Can Act Before Time Runs Out

Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) allows four years to sue for personal injury and two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you do not pursue your insurance claims or take legal action before the statute of limitations expires, you may not be able to recover your losses. Our attorneys can help you seek damages before time runs out.

St. Cloud Uber Driver Insurance Requirements

Like all Florida motorists, Uber drivers must carry PIP and property damage liability (PDL) insurance. When a driver is not working (i.e., the Uber app is off), their private insurance applies in case of an accident.

However, when a transportation network company (TNC) driver is working, Florida Statutes § 627.748 requires the following insurance coverage:

  • When the driver is logged into the Uber app but not yet engaged in a ride:
    • $50,000 for bodily injury or death per person/$100,000 per accident

$25,000 in property damage liability

  • When the driver is en route to a ride or transporting passengers:
    • $1 million in third-party liability coverage for bodily injury, death, or property damages

According to Uber, the above coverage also applies to Uber Eats and Uber delivery drivers. Our St. Cloud Uber accident lawyers can help you pursue a fair settlement from the at-fault driver’s applicable insurance. We can also assist with a lawsuit against the driver if necessary. However, it is difficult to sue Uber for its drivers’ negligent actions because the TNC considers drivers independent contractors, not employees.

Other Liable Parties

If your Uber accident was the fault of another motorist (not the Uber driver), we can pursue compensation through their insurance coverage or take legal action to recover your losses. We can also seek compensation from a government agency, private roadway owner, or vehicle manufacturer if negligent road maintenance or defective vehicle or auto parts contributed to your collision.
