Maryland Ridesharing Accident Protocol
Over the last ten years, we witnessed a surge in ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft. Though convenient and generally safe, accidents happen. Complications begin as soon as an accident occurs, but the aftermath is where things truly take a turn, especially regarding insurance. Fortunately, an experienced rideshare accident attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve while focusing on healing.
If you have been injured in an accident involving ridesharing, it is crucial to follow these guidelines:
The first and most essential step after an accident is to call 911. In doing so, you ensure medical assistance and a police report. The details of the report may help your future claim, and medical treatment establishes any physical injuries as a direct result of the accident.
Even if you are unsure whether you are injured, completing a medical assessment is critical in ensuring your safety and the likelihood of a settlement.
If you can do so, take photographs of the scene, including vehicles, license plates, skid marks, injuries, your rideshare receipt and reservation, and anything else that may be of interest to your claim.
In addition to photographs, collect any witnesses' names and contact information. Record the insurance and contact information from the rideshare driver and the parties involved in the accident.
Seek medical attention
After initially receiving medical care, it is imperative to have a consistent treatment record, so follow your physician's orders to your best ability. If you miss an appointment or disregard your doctor's medical advice, the insurance company may question the legitimacy and severity of your injuries as your claim progresses.
Report the accident
You or your Uber & Lyft Accidents Lawyer can report the accident to your insurance company. Once reported, your lawyer should handle all future communication.
Hire an Uber or Lyft Claims Attorney
By this time, if you still need to retain a lawyer, reach out to a skilled legal advocate to begin the settlement process for your Uber or Lyft accident. Your attorney can work with you to recover for damages, such as:
- Medical expenses and care,
- Home modifications to help with ongoing injuries,
- Lost wages,
- Pain & suffering,
- Lost quality of life,
- And more!
