What to do if you are a passenger in an Uber accident

Uber and Lyft have become integral parts of many Texans' lives. Lawmakers have even begun to look toward the services to transport Medicaid patients to the hospital. 

While these apps have made life easier for many people, they can make someone's life temporarily harder if the driver ends up in an accident. Regardless if the Uber driver is at fault for the collision, you need to think about your well-being in the immediate aftermath. There are several steps to take during this time to make sure you can pay for all upcoming expenses. 

Call emergency services

Depending on the severity of the crash, you will want to get the police down to the scene. You want the cops to follow a report, so everything is on record. This becomes even more vital if someone sustained a serious injury. If you are able to, then you should also take pictures of the crash. This includes photographs of all vehicles involved as well as other factors that could have contributed to the collision. You want to get pertinent information from all of the drivers, including names and driver's license numbers. 

Contact Uber

Once you have all relevant details, you want to get in touch with Uber to inform them of what transpired. Since you were a passenger at the time of the collision, it makes the process much simpler. Uber carries $1 million personal injury coverage, so you should be able to get all medical expenses related to the crash covered. You should still retain the services of an attorney during this time just in case. 

Go to a doctor

Right after any car crash, you need to go to the hospital. Hours after a crash, you may not know how severe your injuries are. It is better to get a prompt diagnosis rather than to wait when it is harder to connect your injuries to the accident.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
