I was in an accident with a Lyft driver, what do I do?

If you were in an automobile accident while a passenger in a Lyft vehicle, there are certain, important things to do immediately and while at the accident scene. First, call 911 as soon as possible so that help can arrive for anyone that is injured, including yourself. The quicker an ambulance arrives the better chances the injured will have to survive. Also, the quicker police arrive the better they can direct traffic to help prevent subsequent accidents. The other reason you want the police there is for them to be able to investigate the crash by interviewing witnesses and taking pictures. Once an accident report is generated, that document can be used later by the attorneys to determine who was at fault if a lawsuit is necessary.

It is important to get the names, addresses and phone numbers of everyone involved, including any potential witnesses. Further, take pictures of the crashed cars to indicate damage, as well as the accident scene. Take photos of the entire area so that, if necessary, your future personal injury lawyer will be able to get a good sense of the roadway and how the crash happened. Make sure to record the insurance information from the Lyft driver. The best practice is to take a photo of the insurance card which will have all of the pertinent information on it, including the driver’s name and information.

The last thing you should do is report the crash to Lyft directly. You can do that here at this link. The reason to do this is to ensure that Lyft knows about the car crash as soon as possible. Sometimes the Lyft drivers fail to report accidents because they might be worried, they will be fired by Lyft. The sooner the people at Lyft know of the accident the sooner they can investigate and open up a claim on your behalf.
