I’m a pedestrian who was hit by an Uber driver, what should I do?

The first thing to do if you are in a pedestrian Uber accident is just like being in any other car accident — call 911 if you physically can and seek immediate medical treatment if you need it. The best thing for an injured pedestrian is to have the first responders arrive at the scene of the crash as soon as possible. Because there are usually very serious injuries, the faster an ambulance and EMTs get there the better. Also, the quicker police get there helps ensure the Uber accident is reported properly and allows the officer on the scene to perform an investigation into the cause of the crash, take pictures and interview witnesses. A police officer will also be able to determine if the Uber pedestrian accident was caused by the Uber driver being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Next, if possible, make sure to obtain the names, addresses and telephone numbers of everyone involved and any witnesses. Take pictures of the accident scene including the damaged vehicle from different angles. Make sure to include broad pictures of the scene of the crash site, which will allow a personal injury lawyer to have perspective of the crash scene.

Also, make sure to record the insurance information from the Uber driver, including the insurance company, policy number, phone number and address. If you have a smart phone on you, take a picture of the insurance card as well, so that no mistakes are made. The last thing you should do is report the Uber crash directly to Uber. The link to the contact information to contact Uber is here.

Due to the complexity of these cases, it is imperative you contact a New Jersey personal injury attorney that is experienced in handling Uber pedestrian accident cases.
