What To Do After an Uber Accident

Watch this video by dedicated Buffalo injury attorney Timothy Hiller, Esq. as he explains what to do after being involved in a ride-sharing accident. 

If you were involved in an Uber accident, if you’re driving for Uber or Lyft or any other ride-sharing service, and you get in an accident while you’re on duty, you may think that, well, geez, I have to file a worker’s comp claim. I can’t pursue a claim on my own. But that’s actually not true. These are very complex cases, and there are very complex issues of insurance involved.

You need an attorney right from the get-go who’s going to put the right people on notice immediately. Because if you don’t contact an attorney who puts the right people on notice down the line, you may tell the insurance company about it, but they can deny your claim because they weren’t put on notice quickly enough. It’s very important that you hire an attorney who has experience navigating the different types of insurance that cover drivers of ride-sharing services so that the proper notice is given to the insurance companies. Now, if you are a passenger in an Uber or in a Lyft, again, you’re going to need an advocate on your side because now you’re up against one of the biggest companies in America, Uber, and Lyft, and they have very talented insurance adjusters and an army of lawyers. So if you’re going to do that, if you’re going to take that on by yourself, you’re not going to get the best results.
