What if I am in an Uber or Lyft Accident?

  1. Seek immediate medical attention.
  2. Call the police and obtain a copy of the police report.
  3. Take detailed notes of the accident. Include the time of day, weather conditions, etc.
  4. Take photos of any injuries, vehicle damage, skid marks on the road, etc.
  5. Get the contact information of any witnesses who saw the accident.
  6. Do not sign anything. Speak with an experienced Uber or Lyft accident attorney, first.
