UBER/LYFT ACCIDENT LAWYER
We Fight For California Uber/Lyft Accident Victims
Ridesharing is more popular than ever in the United States. Consequently, the odds of being involved in an Uber or Lyft accident is higher than ever, too. Knowing what to do after having such an accident can provide you and your lawyer with the best evidence to use in a court case, should it turn out that way.
It’s much easier to remember what to do after an accident when you are not immediately at the scene of the accident that you were involved with. Whether you were in another vehicle or a passenger of the Uber or Lyft during the accident, you’ll most likely be pretty shaken up and/or injured, so your recall memory may not function as well as we would have hoped. However, the more you know about the steps to take before you have an accident might make a big difference when you are left to deal with the “post-accident” fallout.
What To Do
First, get medical attention immediately and get documentation of the order in which getting treatment occurred and any medical action taken. Documentation is extremely valuable in an Uber or Lyft accident case.
Second, if someone has not already done it for you, you should call the police to the scene of the accident. Be sure to have the police write a Traffic Collision Report (TCR). This report will help you later in determining fault and liability.
Third, get the driver’s license number, insurance information, and phone number of the driver of the Uber or Lyft.
Fourth, ask any witnesses if they are willing to give you any information about what they saw and get their name and phone number. They may never need to be contacted, but you never know.
Fifth, be sure not to speak with any insurance adjusters about the facts or injuries caused by the accident. If you are called by an insurance adjuster, let them know that they will need to speak with your attorney. Take their name and number and tell the adjuster that you will have your lawyer contact them. Remember, anything you say to your adjuster can potentially be used against you in a court case.

Finally, contact the law offices of Guy Levy immediately. Because Uber and Lyft are a transportation business, any legal action taken may differ than if you had an accident with just another driver. Your case, for example, may end up being against Uber or Lyft instead of the driver.
