If you are hit by an Uber or other rideshare driver, what should you do? This is a question that a lot of people are asking lately. With the popularity of ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft, the number of accidents involving these drivers seems to be on the rise. If you are in this situation, it is important to know what to do. In this blog post, we will discuss the steps you need to take if you are hit by an Uber or another rideshare driver.
How to Handle a Crash with an Uber or Lyft Driver
If you are involved in a crash with a rideshare driver, first assess the situation. If you or anyone is injured and needs immediate medical attention, either call 911 or have someone else call 911 and request an ambulance. Your first priority should be getting any medical care you need. If you are able to get to a safe space away from any on-coming traffic, you should do so.
Whoever calls 911 should ask the dispatcher to send a police officer to make a police report. If you are able to, obtain identity and insurance information with the rideshare driver. Get their name, address, phone number, and insurance company information, as well as information about which company they are driving for and whether they were driving passengers or picking up passengers at the time of the crash. If you can, take photos of the damage to both vehicles.
Once you have gotten the medical treatment you need and gathered this information, it can help to get in touch with a skilled personal injury attorney to help with your case. They will contact Uber or Lyft on your behalf (depending on which service the other driver was using). You will need to file a claim with them. They will then investigate the accident and determine who is at fault.
If you are hit by an Uber or Lyft driver, it is important to know what to do. These tips will help you through this difficult situation.
