Rideshare services like Uber and Lyft are more popular than ever. The laws governing these services are different from normal passenger vehicles. If involved in a Rideshare accident as a passenger or driver, here are some tips to help maximize your recovery.

  • Make sure that police are called so that they can properly investigate the accident.
  • Document the scene by getting the names and contact information of any witnesses. Use your phone as a tool to take pictures or video of any statements or suspicious behavior by the other driver.
  • Seek medical treatment immediately to make sure that you’re OK. If injured, keep track of your medical bills and lost wages.
  • Contact an attorney that has experience handling Uber and Lyft cases. The insurance rules governing rideshare services are very complicated. Make sure that your lawyer has the knowledge and resources.
