What to do when you sustain injuries in an Uber

Many people have discovered the benefits of hailing an Uber or Lyft in Kentucky. You can get a fare estimate right now to figure out how much it will cost to get around Bowling Green

With so many Uber drivers on the road, there are extremely high chances at least some of them will end up in car accidents. Sometimes the Uber driver will cause the accident, and sometimes it will be a result of another driver. Either way, you need to follow key steps in the immediate aftermath to have an insurance agency cover your expenses.

Notify paramedics and police

You should check in on all parties involved, provided you did not sustain significant injuries. You will want to contact the police, so she or he can create an official report. You may also want to consider having an ambulance come to the scene to take you to the hospital. Even if you do not have any apparent wounds, you still want to see a doctor within 24 hours of the crash. Many injuries do not trigger symptoms until weeks later, and a thorough diagnosis will help your claim. 

Notify insurance agencies

In the event the Uber driver caused the accident, you will want to get in touch with your Uber driver's insurance company. You will also need to notify the Uber (or Lyft) app of the accident. In many cases, the driver's insurance will not cover expenses because most policies do not include crashes that occurred as a result of commercial work. 

If another driver caused the accident, then you will want to get in touch with his or her insurance agency. You will still want to notify Uber of the crash, but the most important thing to do during this time is find a lawyer to represent you. In most cases, you will want your attorney to speak to any insurance representatives who will ensure the insurance company receives all necessary information and nothing more.
