FAQs About Uber/Lyft Car Accidents and Getting Protection
What is the first thing I should do after being in a car accident with an Uber or Lyft driver?
The first thing you should feel obligated to do is pull your car over the best you can and stop. This gets you out of the way of traffic and allows you to take a moment to assess the damage to yourself and your car. It also gives you a chance to call the police to assist you and the person, vehicle, or object you hit, or were hit by, in your car. No matter how small the incident, it is always useful for insurance purposes that you have a legal record of the accident. After that, you will want to get out of your car, if it is safe, to go over the damage and speak with the other person, or people, involved with the accident. If the person that hit you was actively driving for Uber or Lyft at the time of the accident, be sure to not only get their information and the car’s, but also their driver number and other work-related information. Make sure you find out if they had their app turned on our not and if they had accepted a ride in their program. This will also be important information to have when taking them to court for damages and filing insurance claims.
The person that hit me does not have insurance; what should I do?
Luckily, we will not have to worry about this situation happening when getting into an accident with someone who is driving for Uber or Lyft. Under the working agreement, the driver must have active insurance to drive for them, but the companies themselves also have insurance policies in place to help cover their driver, you, and your car in case of accidents. Uber, for example, has a $1 million policy. Even with this policy, though, you should reach out to the Ladva Law Firm in San Francisco, CA if you get into an accident in the Bay Area. We will ensure you get the compensation deserved and file all of the proper claims.
