What to Do After a Rideshare Accident with Uber or Lyft

Posted on April 26, 2017

Auto accidents, whether they involve a car, truck or motorcycle, are complicated by nature. Police reports need to be made, insurance claims must be filed, and medical expenses for injuries add up quickly. These wrecks become more problematic when an Uber or Lyft vehicle is involved. If you were a paying passenger in the rideshare car or driving another vehicle in the crash, it’s important to know what to do following a rideshare accident to make sure your injuries and vehicle damages are covered.

Our lawyer in Boca Raton has ample experience with car accident lawsuits and hopes you’ll follow these steps after a rideshare wreck:

  1. Seek immediate medical attention, if necessary—Some injuries may not show symptoms until it’s too late, such as a brain injury. Always see a medical professional after a severe auto accident.
  2. File a Police Report—This should be done before any parties involved leave the scene to ensure a thorough report.
  3. Gather all relevant information—You will need the rideshare driver’s name, phone number, driver’s license number and insurance information. As well as the contact information for any witnesses to the accident.
  4. Speak to an accident attorney—This is a vital part of the process and is necessary to ensure all of your expenses and damages are covered by the Uber or Lyft driver’s insurance company or the rideshare company’s insurance provider.

These steps should be completed as soon as possible. It’s not uncommon for the rideshare driver’s account of the accident to change as they may be fired from the company due to the crash.
