If you’ve been injured in a rideshare accident, we recommend that you do the following:
- Get the police involved –It is always a good idea to have law enforcement officers take an official report of what really happened. This method ensures that there is an undeniable account of the accident and avoids a she-said, he-said situation.
- Be careful of what you say – Sharing too much information could potentially decrease your chances at a successful injury claim and the defendant or your insurance company could use your own words against you later on. Do not admit fault and speak with an experienced lawyer right away.
- Collect information – Try to get as much information as possible as long as it is safe to do so. This includes the contact and personal information of all parties involved, license plate numbers, and insurance information. Try to take pictures of the scene of the accident if it is safe, and you can take a screenshot of your ridesharing app immediately following the accident.
