Uber & Lyft Car Accidents: What You Need to Know
Were you recently in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver? Hines Law can help you navigate the legal process and get the compensation you deserve.
The Rise of Rideshare Services
Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft have revolutionized the way we travel. With just a few taps on a smartphone, anyone can hail a ride and be on their way. However, this convenience has come with a downside.
Accidents involving rideshare vehicles are becoming more common as the number of drivers on the road continues to rise. If you have been injured in an accident involving an Uber or Lyft driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
10 Crucial Steps to Take After Being in an Uber or Lyft Car Accident
If you have been involved in an Uber or Lyft car accident, here are the steps you should take:
Seek medical attention: Your health and safety should be your top priority. Seek medical attention immediately, even if you feel fine. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
Contact the police: Call the police and report the accident. Ask for a copy of the police report.
Gather information: Collect the contact and insurance information of the rideshare driver and any other drivers involved in the accident. Take photos of the accident scene and any damage to the vehicles.
Contact Uber or Lyft: Report the accident to the rideshare company as soon as possible. They will have their own insurance policies that may apply to your case.
Contact an attorney: An experienced personal injury attorney can help you navigate the legal process and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Keep records: Keep track of all medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the accident. This information will be important when seeking compensation.
Be careful with statements: Avoid making any statements to insurance companies or other parties that could be used against you later.
Follow medical advice: Follow your doctor’s instructions and attend all follow-up appointments. Your health and recovery should be your top priority.
Stay informed: Keep in touch with your attorney and stay up-to-date on the progress of your case.
Don’t settle too quickly: Insurance companies may offer you a quick settlement, but it may not be enough to cover all of your expenses. Work with your attorney to negotiate a fair settlement that fully compensates you for your losses.
