Filing A Ridesharing Claim After An Accident

Car accidents involving Uber and Lyft can cause serious issues for passengers in Los Angeles. Experienced attorneys are required if you have been injured while riding in an Uber or Lyft vehicle. Our lawyers at Rafii & Nazarian, LLP, will help you understand your rights and protect your interests after an accident.

Causes Of Ridesharing Accidents When You Are The Passenger

Uber and Lyft drivers may put you at risk and cause an accident by not paying attention to the road. They could be distracted by talking to passengers, using their cellphones or trying to follow directions. These hazardous behaviors can contribute to an accident and should be noted in your claim if you have been injured.

Claims involving ridesharing companies are complex. As a passenger, you may be able to file a claim against an Uber or Lyft driver as well as the other driver involved in the crash.

Important Tips For Using Uber Or Lyft

It is important to contact the police right away if you have been involved in an accident while riding in an Uber or Lyft vehicle. The driver will have his or her own insurance process to follow, and your interests will not be put first during this process. That is why it is vital to try to obtain information right away after a crash. This may include obtaining a police report, witness contact information and photographs of the scene of the accident to help document your claim.

Ridesharing is a great service, but riders should be aware of the risks they face when getting into a car with a stranger. Below are tips to stay safe while using ridesharing apps:

  • Take a picture of who is driving the vehicle.
  • Let someone know you are taking Uber or Lyft and when he or she should expect you to arrive or get home.
  • Put the destination location on the app so you can be traced.
