What to Do After an Uber Accident

Here are immediate actions you need to take to protect your safety and legal rights while ensuring fair compensation:

Document the Scene of the Accident and Gather Witness Information

If able, take photos of the accident scene and any visible injuries. Gather contact information from witnesses who may have seen the accident. And if possible, get the details of the rideshare driver’s personal insurance.

Note the time of the accident. If you can’t determine the exact time, refer to your Uber app for when you made the ride request or when the pickup happened.

Seek Medical Attention

Get medical treatment immediately, even if you feel fine. Remember, some injuries may not be immediately apparent. Some injuries (such as concussions) manifest over time.

Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions

If you stop seeing the doctor or fail to take prescribed medications, the insurance company may claim you are healed and need no further treatment.

Seek Legal Representation

Call Frantz Law Group at (855) 735-5945.

During a free consultation, a San Diego car accident lawyer at our law firm can discuss other aspects of your auto accident case. They will explain the process and nuances involved in personal injury cases, such as the statute of limitations.

Here’s the key thing. You must seek legal representation before speaking with personal auto insurance companies. Insurance companies often try to settle for the lowest amount possible, which may not fully cover your medical expenses and other damages.

Do not discuss your case with anyone other than your car accident attorney. Do not talk with an insurance company representative, sign documents, or make recorded statements without talking with Frantz Law Group.

Report the Accident to Your Insurance Company

Do not go ahead with your own insurance claim or accept a settlement offer without consulting a car accident attorney. Our San Diego law firm has years of legal experience reviewing settlement offers. We can tell you if the offer is fair or you may be entitled to more compensation.

Do not describe the car accident in detail or admit responsibility. Our experienced lawyers can assist in negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your losses.

We understand the tactics used by insurance companies and know how to fight for your rights.
