STEPS TO TAKE AFTER AN UBER ACCIDENT

  • As in all vehicle accidents, the first thing to do if you suffer serious injuries in an accident is to call for medical assistance immediately. If you are able, take photographs of the accident scene, any injuries, or property damage. Remember to get all the pertinent information from everyone involved in the accident, including contact information from any witnesses. Do not talk about whose fault the accident was with anyone at the scene. Remain calm and focused and make sure that your medical needs are being taken care of.

    Do not speak with any insurance adjusters until you have spoken with your attorney. There are some injuries that are commonly sustained after an Uber or Lyft accident including head injuries, spinal cord damage, knee damage, shoulder injuries, cracked or broken ribs, facial disfigurement and hand and wrist damage. It is very unwise to take money for your injuries and to sign waivers or release-of-liability forms.
