Injured in an Uber or Lyft


What should I do if I was injured in an Uber or Lyft?


Nowadays, people want to use a rideshare app, either because they?re going to be drinking later that day, so they don?t want to drive, or it?s going to be too much of a pain to find a parking spot wherever they?re going. They get involved in an accident while they?re in this rideshare app, and they don?t know what to do. First of all, you?ve got to make sure that you have notified the application as to what happened and you have to try to get as much information from everyone involved in this crash.

Chances are, the rideshare application has insurance, and they?re going to reach out to you. Make sure you get a claim number, but don?t give them a statement and don?t turn over too much information without having already spoken to a lawyer. At the end of the day, these insurance adjusters are going to be doing everything they can to try to lower the value of your claim and to delay the settlement as much as possible. You?ve got to find a lawyer that knows all their tricks and can help you avoid all those delay tactics that they?re going to try to use.

If you?re asking yourself, ?I just got into this rideshare accident, what do I do?? call a lawyer. Notify the rideshare application. Don?t give a statement until you?ve spoken to a lawyer.
