Navigating Insurance Claims in a Ridesharing Accident
One of the most challenging parts of ridesharing accidents is understanding how the insurance coverage works and which policy was in effect at the time of your accident. Rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft have insurance policies that may cover car accident victims when:
- You were in the rideshare as a passenger when the accident occurred
- The rideshare driver caused the accident while they were on the way to pick up a rider or had a rider in their vehicle
Rideshare companies may provide contingency coverage if the driver is “on the app” but has not yet paired with a rider for pickup. If the driver is not currently working on the app, your claim may go against their personal driver’s insurance policy.
A rideshare accident lawyer in Tampa from Distasio Law Firm can identify the possible insurance policies in effect at the time of your accident and file your claim accordingly if you qualify.

Deadlines on Filing Your Tampa Ridesharing Accident Case
The statute of limitations on filing a negligence-based personal injury lawsuit, per Florida Statute 95.11, is generally four years. For Florida wrongful death lawsuits, the general statute of limitations is two years. However, there may be circumstances in your case that affect your deadlines.
We recommend calling for your free legal evaluation as early in the process as your injuries allow, so we can identify the timeline and crucial dates in your case before time runs out.
