What Should You Do After Being Injured in a Rideshare Accident?

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you are likely in shock and in the midst of chaotically navigating the processes of speaking with police at the scene or exchanging information with others involved.

There are a few major pieces of information to know and keep in mind following your accident.

  1. DO seek medical attention as soon as possible: whether or not your injuries are significant or even if you aren’t entirely sure that you have any. Injuries you may have suffered from the accident sometimes may not show up for days. However, speaking with a doctor will ensure you get professional care and any X-rays or scans to uncover internal damage or unseen breaks.
  2. DO NOT speak with insurance companies or rideshare companies about your case until AFTER meeting with a lawyer: If you speak with insurance representatives or Uber and Lyft representatives, they are going to pose questions that might put you in a tricky situation. Their questions may seem innocent at first, however, they are designed to put you in a trap where you may inadvertently admit fault or dismiss your injuries you are suffering from. Before speaking with any of these parties about your injuries or about the car accident, it is important to talk to a lawyer first to plan how to answer these questions.

Recoverable Damages for Lyft and Uber Car Accident Victims in Long Beach

Rideshare accidents may involve passengers, drivers, cyclists, or even pedestrians. Injured victims in these Uber or Lyft accidents will not only have to prove that a negligent party caused the injuries, but victims must provide evidence of the extent of their injuries.

For insurance companies to agree to a settlement, it is necessary to analyze each unique situation to determine the total sum of the losses experienced by the victim.

Losses that may be recovered include:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages or income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Funeral expenses (in wrongful death cases)

How Much is My Uber Car Accident Settlement Worth?

Calculating the value of any car accident settlement is complicated. There is no one exact answer as every case is unique.

Speaking with an experienced rideshare attorney is a good start to get an idea of how much your case may be worth. However, without a thorough investigation, there is no way to properly estimate the value.

Serious injuries often trigger other life-altering damages or losses. Rideshare accident lawyers work to investigate your case, review your situation, and calculate the maximum amount of recoverable damages for your injuries. This calculation will be unique for each case and it is a legal team’s job to make sure they get all the information in order to maximize your settlement.

Keeping track of all medical bills, insurance papers, and any recording of any trauma or suffering victims experience will all help determine the value of the case.

Injuries in Lyft and Uber Long Beach Car Accidents

Many injuries may be difficult to feel or pinpoint directly following your accident. Your body is likely in shock and full of adrenaline that buffers the pain that will come later. These types of injuries can cause serious issues as time passes.

  • Spinal cord injury and damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Internal organ damage
  • Head, neck, and back injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Sprains and strains
  • Burns or cuts
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

Remember, whether or not your injury seems minor or even if you don’t think you’ve been injured, go see a doctor.

Lyft and Uber car accident victims should visit a doctor within 24 hours of the accident or as soon as possible to get a proper check-up and make sure injuries are addressed.
