Many people rely on Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare services regularly. Yet, what happens if you are in a rideshare car accident?
Here are three things you should do if you found yourself in a Uber/Lyft accident.
Alerting the police is critical. Police generate accident reports, and those reports can be useful to you later.
You should document what happened by taking photographs or videos. You also want to get the names and phone numbers of eyewitnesses.
Call the Company
Drivers may not want their rideshare companies to know that they have been in a crash. Bringing the accident to the attention of the rideshare company may help yourself later.
