While rideshare services are beneficial most of the time, it only takes a single negligent action behind the wheel to cause serious injuries and losses.

Uber & Lyft Accidents: FAQs
While every client who comes to us has their own story, we’re asked a number of similar questions across the board. For example, some of the most frequently asked questions about rideshare accidents include the following:
What Do I Do After a Crash?
The actions you take following an Uber or Lyft accident are crucial to your recovery—both physically and financially. It’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. This will not only ensure your injuries are evaluated, diagnosed, and treated, but you will also have official records of your injuries your lawyer can use to start totaling your economic losses.
In addition to seeing a doctor, it’s important to file a report with the applicable rideshare company. Depending on the severity of the crash, police may arrive at the scene and take a statement from you. Your attorney will use all accident reports when investigating your claim.
Why Should I Work With a Rideshare Attorney?
While you are within your legal right to pursue an injury claim without representation, we highly advise against it. Our attorneys specialize in Uber and Lyft accidents, and we’re skilled at negotiating with insurance companies to ensure you receive fair compensation for your losses. If you choose to pursue a claim on your own accord, you could jeopardize your chances of receiving total compensation.
How Do I File a Claim?
The claims process is easier than you may think, but it is involved. When you reach out to our attorneys, we’ll evaluate what you’ve been through and help you determine your best options moving forward. If you choose to pursue a claim, we’ll start by investigating the crash to determine who was at fault for what happened. Once we have enough evidence to prove negligence, we can total your economic and non-economic losses to ensure you know the lowest offer you’ll accept through negotiations. Finally, we will ensure all deadlines are met, and all paperwork is properly filed.
How Do I Know Who Is At-fault for the Accident?
Determining who to hold responsible for an Uber or Lyft crash can be challenging. In many instances, you’ll likely look to hold the driver accountable. There is a chance, however, that the negligent party is actually the rideshare company. To determine the at-fault party, your attorney will first determine the cause of the crash and go from there.
How Much Is a Rideshare Claim Worth?
The value of an injury claim is based on a number of factors—both economic and non-economic. To figure out what you’re owed, your lawyer will start by taking any calculable losses into consideration. This includes medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage. When it comes to your non-economic losses, they will be based on the severity of your accident, how badly the crash affected your livelihood, and general pain and suffering.
