What To Do If You Are Injured In An Uber or A Lyft

After there has been an accident, the first thing that you should always do is to call 911. They will send an ambulance to make sure that anyone who has been seriously injured will be taken care of. On top of that, they will also send an officer to make sure that there is a report of the incident.

You should be taking your own notes on the scene of the accident. We understand that it is incredibly traumatic to go through a crash, it is a good idea to keep your own record of where the accident happened, the other driver’s information, the information of any witnesses, and information about the make and model of the vehicles involved. You will also want to record, as best you can, the details of the crash and how it happened.

This is important because there are three insurances plans that could come into play here: the driver’s insurance, the other driver’s insurance, or Lyft/Uber’s insurance. 

After this, it is important to go to a healthcare facility. Even if you do not have any injuries right away, it is still important to go. This is because certain injuries, especially head and neck injuries, do not show up for a few days.

Common Rideshare Accident Injuries

There are many different injuries that can come from a rideshare accident. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Back Injuries
  • Burns
  • Internal Injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Road rash
  • PTSD

Filing A Lawsuit After Uber & Lyft Accidents

Who Is Held Responsible for An Uber or A Lyft Accident?

Usually, the driver is held liable for an accident. This makes intuitive sense, because the driver is operating the vehicle. Sometimes, the driver’s insurance policy is not adequate to compensate you for the injuries you suffered. In those instances, it is possible to sue Lyft or Uber. This is the reason that Uber and Lyft provide a $1 million liability policy. 

If the other driver is at fault, then they would be held liable for the accident. In this scenario, it would be treated similarly to a regular car accident.

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.
  • We can. Call 305-662-6178 or submit a request for your FREE CONSULTATION to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. We will review your case at no charge. To learn more about personal injury, please read below.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
