Broward County Uber Accident Lawyer | Fighting for You
Many of us rely on Uber to get us safely from place to place.

Often, behaving negligently leads to accidents. You can rely on a Broward County personal injury attorney here at our firm to fight for you.
Uber’s Liability Coverage
When someone is wrongfully injured in an accident caused by an Uber driver, they should be eligible to receive financial compensation. The compensation available through Uber’s liability coverage depends on when the accident was caused. Uber’s liability coverage system is broken down into “periods.” Uber’s liability coverage is as follows:
- Period 0: When an Uber driver isn’t logged into the rideshare app and causes an accident, Uber will not provide coverage. In this case, our firm will sue the negligent driver’s own insurance company.
- Period 1: If an Uber driver causes an accident when he or she is logged into the app but has not yet accepted a ride, Uber will provide liability coverage for up to $50,000 per person injured in the accident, $100,000 total injury liability per accident, and $25,000 in property damage liability.
- Period 2: When an Uber driver causes an accident after accepting a ride and is on the way to pick up the passenger, Uber will provide the injured party with up to $1 million in liability coverage.
- Period 3: When an Uber driver causes an accident while a passenger is in his or her car, Uber will provide $1 million in liability coverage, limited coverage for damage to the driver’s car, and uninsured motorists’ coverage.
Filing Your Claim
If you’ve been hurt in an Uber accident, you and your Broward County Uber accident lawyer will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. We can work to gather and present various types of evidence to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim. Ensure that you bring your claim within the state’s statute of limitations, which is two years. Missing the statute of limitations will most likely result in you losing your right to sue.
