Types of Uber & Lyft Rideshare Accidents
If you have been involved in a rideshare accident, it is equally as likely that you were a pedestrian, passenger, or driver of another vehicle when the accident took place. We represent all plaintiffs of these types of accidents and will provide the counsel and support you need to hold the right parties accountable. We will handle all of the communications between you, your insurance provider, the driver of the Uber or Lyft, and the rideshare companies.
Preparing for Your Case
The best thing you can do to mount a successful personal injury claim against Uber, Lyft, or any other rideshare program is to document everything you can in the direct aftermath of the accident. This includes saving any communications between you and the driver, taking screenshots of any strange or questionable messages, company responses, photographing your injuries and the scene of the incident, collecting contact information and testimonials from all involved parties and witnesses, and reporting the incident to the police. That being said, do not speak directly to the driver, their insurance company, or representatives at Uber or Lyft. You should also avoid posting any mention of the accident on social media, as this may hurt your case.
