What To Do After An Uber Accident

It’s not easy being an Uber driver considering that you’re always in a rush to pick up and drop off passengers all hours of the day in order to earn a living. Yet when an accident occurs, Uber may refuse to compensate you for the injuries sustained if you don’t follow their terms of service.

Hiring a qualified Uber accident lawyer is a must if you want to get compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered. Here are steps to take if you’re involved in an accident while driving an Uber vehicle in California.

1. Check to make sure that you and your passengers are ok
When an accident happens, your number one priority is to check if you and your passengers are okay. If you are only slightly injured, then try to move to the side of the road if you can.

2. Document every detail of the accident
You are advised to document every detail of the accident to ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries. This information can be useful when seeking compensation from your insurance company and Uber. Lastly, you should call the police whether you are injured or not. Police reports don’t cost anything but can prove vital to your case.

3. Seek medical attention, if you are injured
You should seek medical attention as soon as possible if you are injured. Remember, your health and that of your passenger is critical. Ultimately, nothing else matters at this point other than the well-being of both you and your passenger. In addition, getting treated for injuries sustained will form the basis of your compensation claim.

4. Contact an Uber/Lyft accident lawyer  You should talk to a car accident attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you get in touch with a lawyer, the sooner he or she will start working on your claim. Don’t forget that getting compensation for your injuries is not that easy especially when you’re dealing with companies with massive financial resources like Uber.
