What to Do After a Rideshare Accident

As an Uber or Lyft passenger or anyone else injured by a driver, there are some steps you must take to protect yourself and have the evidence you need to successfully file a car accident claim. Drivers and insurance companies will do whatever it takes to avoid having to pay settlements, which is why you need an airtight claim that prevents them from evading liability.

Seek Medical Attention

After an accident, it’s of the utmost importance that you seek medical attention for any injuries – even minor injuries or symptoms like a headache. Only a medical professional can determine if you’re okay and give you the treatment you need to heal. Make sure to hold onto any receipts or medical records that can be used in your claim to establish that the accident directly caused your injuries and damages.

Gather Evidence

Next, collect as much information regarding your accident as possible that can be used in your case.

  • Take photos of car damage and your injuries
  • Collect the driver’s information
  • Get the contact information of any witnesses who can provide statements
  • Authorities who respond to the scene of an accident are also required to file a crash report, which you can obtain a copy of from the police station.

  • “Very knowledgeable in his craft.”
    I came to the Law Office of Dean Petrulakis after being referred from a friend. I was previously working with another firm who had done very little to help me, let alone communicate with me. Mr. Petrulakis took time to speak with me over the phone and after consideration of the difficulties related to my case, he agreed to take my case. I was very impressed and appreciative of the genuine concern and compassion he relayed. He is very knowledgeable in his craft, and equally kind and personable. He and his assistant Jennifer were amazing communicators who kept me well informed without delay. My case was handled quickly, professionally, and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Dean Petrulakis to everyone/anyone who has been injured and needs representation.
