If you were injured in an accident caused by a rideshare vehicle like Uber or Lyft, you can make a claim for compensation. You can receive amounts for medical expenses, lost earnings and pain, suffering and inconvenience.
If you are seriously injured, you should call 911 and take an ambulance to get medical attention as soon as possible. If your injuries aren’t that bad, you can wait until you leave the accident scene but you must visit an emergency room or see a doctor right away. If you delay getting treatment for too long, the insurance will assume you weren’t badly hurt and lower the value of a settlement offer.
An attorney can make sure the necessary evidence is presented to the rideshare driver’s insurance (with coverage up to $1M) and that you obtain what you are entitled to receive.
