We all rely on Uber or Lyft from time to time but sometimes accidents happen. Because Uber and Lyft are corporate entities, the relationships they have with their drivers as contractors can be confusing to navigate. If you have been injured by the negligence of an Uber or Lyft Driver or if you were involved in an accident where you were a passenger, it's important to remember these tips:
When a ridesharing trip ends in your injury, reach out to us for dedicated legal representation.
- If you're a passenger in an Uber or Lyft vehicle, you can report most claims through the app. But if you are not the person who called or is paying for the trip, it's important that they report the trip because it's how each company validates the ride and occurrence. It allows each company to identify the driver and transactions.
- Call the police. Every detail counts and this will ensure additional documentation of the accident, time, and place which is a common defense against both companies.
