Since a significant part of the Villages is a retirement community, rideshare services are convenient for older citizens who don’t want to or can no longer drive. However, this convenience can come at a cost. If you were struck by an Uber or otherwise involved in a rideshare collision, The Villages Uber accident lawyer with Bogin, Munns & Munns can clarify who is liable and pursue them for the best possible compensation.
Our Uber Accident Lawyers Aren’t Afraid of Complex Rideshare Cases
Any accident involving a large company like Uber has the potential for complexity. Communication with the company alone is often challenging, with victims unsure who to contact, where to direct questions, and how to access resources.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, our personal injury lawyers strive to eliminate guesswork and your need to communicate with the other parties. We not only identify the path to getting information and pursuing damages but also embark on that path on your behalf.
That’s not all we can do as your representatives. We can also:
- Investigate and link the liable party to your injuries to demonstrate responsibility
- Assist you in getting healthcare, repairs, and financial support while your case progresses
- Help you file an insurance claim, check for errors, and provide statements to adjusters
- Review settlement offers and ensure you don’t agree to a settlement before you know your losses
- Negotiate with adjusters, attorneys, drivers, and Uber representatives to reach an accurate settlement
- File a lawsuit against the appropriate party, if necessary
Even with a big company like Uber, many cases settle out of court. This doesn’t mean you won’t need to file a lawsuit—sometimes that’s necessary to get their attention—nor does it mean we won’t go to trial to get compensation. We do whatever it takes to obtain justice for you, in court or out.
Big Rideshare Companies Put Up a Big Fight
Uber’s adjusters will fight hard to lower compensation for your serious injuries. From blaming you for the accident to claiming you aren’t severely injured, they may employ several tactics.
They may even try to avoid liability altogether. Uber’s terms and conditions don’t classify them as a transportation service, but as a service connecting third-party drivers with passengers. They can claim they aren’t liable, but the driver is.
The complex liability issues can prove frustrating for victims. Our car accident attorney can identify and combat common insurance tactics as well as understand the responsibilities of the rideshare company.

We Seek Recognition for How Your Uber Accident Injuries Affected You
In holding Uber, their drivers, or another party responsible for your serious injuries, we pursue compensation for any related expenses and losses. Damages could provide for:
- Medical bills
- Medication and equipment
- Mental health support
- Lost income
- Reduced earning ability
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Reduced quality of life
A significant portion of the Villages’ population is 55 and over. Recovering from injuries as older adults is sometimes a longer process than it is for younger people. We, therefore, consider age, activity, and lifestyle factors when pursuing compensation. More than just treating injuries, your damages should consider how those injuries affected your life.
Even if you are a younger victim, the accident may have changed your lifestyle. If your injuries affected your ability to work, engage in hobbies, or participate in relationships, we can pursue compensation for those changes.
If You Were a Cyclist or Pedestrian
As cited in U.S. News & World Report, rideshares pose a particular danger to pedestrians and bicyclists, increasing accidents at pick-up and drop-off points.
If this describes your accident, you may have suffered more serious injuries than those in a motor vehicle collision. Broken bones, head and brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries could cost thousands of dollars and keep you from working.
In cases with big price tags and longer recoveries, liable parties may try especially hard to lower your settlement, trimming off whatever they can. Our attorneys fight for appropriate compensation that supports you through your rehabilitation.
Protect Your Damages—Don’t Wait to Act
According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you typically have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, check with our Uber accident lawyers to verify the deadline for your Villages case. Some factors could change your time frame.
Adhering to the deadline protects your right to pursue compensation. Yet you can do more than just file on time to protect your damages. Working on your case before the deadline helps preserve crucial evidence.

How Liability Works in Uber Accidents in the Villages
Although you typically pursue a claim through your own personal injury protection or no-fault insurance, you can hold the other party liable if you suffered serious injuries, such as disfigurement or significant loss of a bodily function.
A rideshare driver’s insurance coverage depends on their app usage. Uber provides the following coverage:
- Driver not logged into the app – No coverage, as the driver’s personal auto insurance may take care of your losses
- Driver logged into the app and waiting for a ride – $50,000 for bodily injury person, $100,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage
- Driver driving a passenger or picking them up – $1 million in third-party liability, uninsured/underinsured coverage, and some comprehensive and collision coverage
We can investigate to determine the driver’s status when they hit you so that you file claims appropriately. If you were a passenger in an Uber, we can identify the cause of the collision to see if the Uber driver or another driver was responsible.
