If you have been seriously injured, your first priority is to get medical attention.  There are many scenarios in an accident involving a ridesharing service.  Certain factors come into play in an accident that involves Uber accidents:

  • Was the app on or off?
  • Was the driver going to pick up a customer?
  • Was a customer in the vehicle?
  • Were you driving the car hit by the Uber driver?
  • Were you on a bicycle or a pedestrian
  • Were you a passenger in the Uber car?

It is always a good idea to retain a personal injury attorney in these cases.  They can investigate the accident for you and get all the details necessary.  The police will determine fault so your attorney can get the facts on your behalf.  The sooner an attorney can start getting the information together, the better for your case.  Either way, get as much information about the accident as possible so that your attorney can start putting together your case.
