What Happens if my Uber or Lyft is in an Accident?

If you are using a rideshare service like Uber, Lyft, or Alto, and you are involved in an accident, you may be wondering what your rights are as the passenger, especially if you are injured. In this article, we will break down what to do in an accident and what the next steps to take are.

What to Do in a Rideshare Accident

In the moments after a wreck, it’s critical to know what steps to take to protect your rights and ensure your well-being. If you are in a rideshare accident, initially you should follow the same steps you would in any other vehicle accident:

  1. Check for injuries
  2. Call the police to get a police report
  3. Call paramedics if injuries are severe
  4. Take pictures and video of the scene, including all involved vehicles, the location, and injuries
  5. Get both drivers’ insurance information – your driver and the other driver(s) involved in the accident
  6. Report the accident to the rideshare company you are using. This can usually be done easily through their app.

Moving forward it will be helpful to work with a personal injury law firm like Carrollton Injury Law, because there are several variables that can impact your injury claim, like who caused the wreck, whether the driver was on the way to pick up another passenger, and more.

You could potentially have multiple injury claims against multiple insurance companies as the passenger of a rideshare service, so to be sure you are compensated fairly, it is important to work with a personal injury firm like Carrollton Injury Law.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
