Know When to Call an Uber Accident Lawyer

What should Uber and Lyft passengers do in the event of an accident? And at what point should they enlist the services of a rideshare accident lawyer? Get some practical suggestions in this post from AA Accident Attorneys.

Americans are driving more than ever. That’s the upshot of one recent study, which finds that, in recent years, American motorists have been accumulating miles upon miles. Largely, this is positive; it shows an overall steady trend in economic confidence and upward mobility. However, there are also some downsides: More traffic; more pedestrian deaths; more fuel emissions.

Where do rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft fit into all this? These companies play a big part in these positive trends, but also in some of the negatives. Indeed, rideshare platforms account for a decent chunk of the traffic in many of America’s largest cities.

They also account for some of the accidents and injuries. This begs the question: If you’re ever involved in an Uber or a Lyft accident, what should you do? After all, accidents can happen any time you’re in a moving vehicle, and it’s important to be prepared. Know your rights and know when it’s time to call an Uber accident lawyer.

What to Know About Hiring a Lyft Accident Attorney

In addition to knowing the name of a good Uber accident attorney or Lyft accident attorney, we also recommend the following steps.

  • Following an accident, it’s important to get to safety ASAP. If you’re able to, move away from the vehicle and onto a safe spot on the shoulder or median.
  • Survey the scene; if anyone is clearly injured and needs assistance, call 911 and have an ambulance dispatched.
  • Make sure someone calls the police and has them come out to file a report; if your rideshare driver doesn’t do this, do it yourself.
  • Go into your Uber and Lyft app and report the accident.
  • Collect the name, contact information, and insurance information of your driver and the other motorists involved in the accident.
  • Make sure you go to your doctor, the ER, or an urgent care facility to be evaluated… even if you don’t think you’ve been seriously hurt.
  • If your rideshare driver was at fault, you can file a claim with his or her insurance, or with the rideshare company’s.
  • If another driver was at fault, you will need to file with his or her insurance… assuming they are covered.
  • If you have any doubts about how to file a claim or feel like you’re not getting fair treatment from the insurance company, contact an Uber or Lyft accident lawyer right away.

I’d never been in a car accident in my whole life.I had originally hired an attorney, and he had dropped my case. So I came to the Accident Attorneys and they took on my case. They were amazing. They did a really good job. And I didn’t have to handle anything. In the end I’m very satisfied with my settlement.
