What Should I Do After Being Injured in an Uber Accident?
If you are reading this article and have already been injured in a serious Uber accident, you have likely missed the opportunity to gather all the information provided here. However, after a rideshare crash, you will likely want to do the following actions:
- Contact law enforcement and request that the police arrive at the scene of the crash to create a police report
- If you can, try to obtain the name and contact information of any witnesses who were present at the time of the accident
- Use your cell phone to take photos of the scene of the accident, including the license plates of the vehicles in the accident
- Ask for the personal insurance information of your Uber or Lyft driver, as well as the insurance information for any other drivers involved in the crash
- Take a screenshot of your trip in the Uber or Lyft app. That way you have a record of the time of the trip, the name of your driver, and confirmation that you were a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the crash
- Visit a physician, chiropractor, or physiotherapist to confirm the extent of your injuries and to make sure you have the proper treatment to recover from your injuries. The information from the doctor, chiropractor, or physiotherapist will also be used to determine the value of the compensation you are entitled to after your accident
- Contact a New Jersey Uber accident lawyer to determine the value of the compensation you are entitled to and which lawyer you want to hire to resolve your case. It is important to note that hiring a personal injury lawyer is just another part of the process to ensure you are entitled to the settlement you deserve to cover the injuries you sustained in the collision.
