What You Should Do After An Uber/Lyft Accident In Whittier

While nobody gets into an Uber or Lyft expecting an accident, you should be armed with knowledge of what you should do should one occur during your ride services in Whittier.

To start with, you need to see if anyone in the vehicle has been injured. If, so, you need to see medical attention as soon as possible. When you are not able to get yourself to the emergency room, or if there are any severe injuries, you need to contact emergency services for transport as soon as you can to get help at a nearby medical facility.

If you are not suffering from major injury, you can take the time to document whatever you can from the scene of the accident. This will include information from the other vehicle involved and what their insurance provider is. Additionally, you should be asking your Uber or Lyft driver about their insurance coverage so that you can have all of the information handy in the following weeks.

There can be certain injuries that may not start to present themselves until the days or weeks following an accident. Making your way to the emergency room or to be looked at by your primary care physician will help you to have a paper trail that documents your injuries and any treatments associated with the accident.

As a passenger of an Uber or Lyft in Whittier, you need to make sure that you know all of your rights and what you can do if there are injuries that have kept you from working or enjoying your regular daily activities. Contacting a personal injury lawyer in the Whittier area will help you to make sure that you understand these rights and what you can do to seek compensation for any injuries or pain and suffering that you have suffered from.
