Uber has become a very popular method of travel for many people in the United States. Ubers are usually very affordable and thus help save a lot of money and are also very convenient. However, Ubers can also be very dangerous and it is important to know what you should do if you are involved in an Uber accident.

The first step that you should take is to contact the police. Also, you should remain with the Uber driver so that you can also speak with the police. Despite that it might be tempting to leave the scene of the accident, it is imperative that you stay with the police and explain to them your side of the story, so that the police can develop an idea of what happened and who was responsible for the accident.

The next step is to exchange contact information with everyone involved in the accident. This includes your Uber driver, the other driver involved, and any passengers who were with you in the Uber if applicable.

After this, you should report the accident to your insurance company, Uber (so Uber can report the accident to their insurance company), and the other driver’s insurance company. It is recommended that you file these accident reports as soon as possible after the accident occurred because you could relinquish your ability to obtain money for your injuries and losses if you do not act quickly.

Next, seek medical treatment just to be safe and help preserve your claim even if the pain does not seem severe.

Finally, you should speak with a personal injury attorney to discuss any questions or concerns you have about your situation.  The Licatesi Law Group LLP represents clients in many personal injury cases.
