In Florida, the growing popularity of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft has transformed urban transportation. These services, accessible via mobile apps, offer convenience and flexibility, making them a popular choice for residents and tourists alike. However, this surge has led to an increase in rideshare accidents, raising complex legal questions about liability and compensation
Rideshare services have become integral to Florida’s transportation system, especially in bustling areas like Miami, Orlando, and Tampa. They cater to a wide range of needs, from daily commutes to tourist transportation, demonstrating the crucial role they play in Florida’s urban mobility.
Florida’s legal landscape regarding rideshare accidents is nuanced. The state’s statute 627.748 and 627.730-627.7405, clearly outlines the insurance coverage requirements for rideshare drivers. This law differentiates between personal and rideshare use, impacting how liability is assessed in the event of an accident.
Florida Statute 627.748, concerning Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), establishes specific guidelines for insurance coverage and liability regarding rideshare services like Uber and Lyft. The statute defines key terms, including “Digital Network,” “Prearranged Ride,” and “Transportation Network Company,” among others. It clarifies that TNCs are not classified as traditional carriers like taxis and have distinct operational guidelines.
Florida’s comparative negligence rule plays a vital role in determining compensation in rideshare accidents. If you are partially at fault, your compensation might be reduced proportionally to your percentage of fault, an important aspect to consider when pursuing a legal claim.

Rideshare drivers in Florida must have insurance that provides a minimum of $50,000 for death and bodily injury per person, $100,000 per incident, and $25,000 for property damage when logged onto the digital network but not engaged in a ride. During a prearranged ride, this coverage increases to a minimum of $1 million for death, bodily injury, and property damage.
