Types of Rideshare Accidents
Just like any other motor vehicle accident, Uber and Lyft accidents can be caused by any number of things. There are also many combinations of how a person can be involved in an accident with these vehicles. One fairly obvious type of accident is one in which a person is riding as a passenger in the Uber/Lyft and becomes injured in an accident. Another possibility is if you are injured a pedestrian that has been hit by a rideshare service car. Finally, you may be injured by an Uber or Lyft while riding in another vehicle, either as a driver or a passenger. No matter what type of rideshare accident you have been involved in, it is important that you take your legal options into consideration and speak with an experienced attorney.
After an Accident
After an accident occurs involving an Uber or Lyft, it is important that you start to gather evidence as soon as possible, as long as you are physically able to do so. Be sure to obtain the contact information of any witnesses to the accident, take photos of the accident scene, make sure you screenshot the information of your driver, and report the incident to law enforcement so they can officially document the accident. It is important that you do not post on social media after your accident regarding the circumstances, your injuries, or any activities you may be doing that can hurt your case. Typically, you will be required to file a claim with the insurance company of the rideshare service, not the rideshare service itself. If you suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident, it is important to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney who can assess the situation and guide you forward.
