WHAT TO DO IF YOU’VE BEEN INJURED IN A UBER OR LYFT RIDESHARE ACCIDENT
The claims process begins as soon as an accident occurs, so it’s important to remember a few key things
- Do not admit fault
- Get a police report
- Collect the contact information from any witnesses
STEPS TO TAKE AFTER AN ACCIDENT
1. SEE THE DOCTOR
In any car accident, there is a risk of serious injuries. For example, this can include spinal damage, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and broken bones. Even if you don’t have obvious symptoms, you need to go to the hospital as soon as possible. Therefore, see a doctor to receive proper medical treatment and prevent further injury.
2. DOCUMENT THE DAMAGE
Take detailed notes about your experience, your injuries, and your medical expenses and care. Next, keep all the receipts and correspondence from your interactions with doctors, insurance companies, rideshare companies, and others. Then, take many photographs of your injuries and the damage to your vehicle. This information will be extremely valuable when it’s time to file your personal injury case.
3. STAY QUIET
The rideshare driver’s insurance company will contact you and ask for a statement. However, you do not need to provide any details about the accident just yet. Instead, get their name and phone, and inform them that your lawyer will call back. Even if you have not hired an Uber or Lyft attorney, do not share any information with insurers.
Next, contact an attorney for legal counseling. Established attorneys offer free consultations to discuss your case and provide advice about what to do next. Therefore, you have nothing to lose when confiding with a rideshare lawyer. In addition, speaking with an attorney will protect your rights and prevent any pitfalls in hurting your case.
4. CALL AN UBER ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
To insurance and rideshare companies, unrepresented accident victims involved in a crash are easy targets. As a result, they will do anything they can to undercompensate you for your injuries and medical expenses.
The Lyft and Uber accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Daniel Kim know how these companies work. Therefore, we are trained to deal with the big rideshare giants. In addition, we will fight to maximize your compensation.
