Were you involved in a motor vehicle accident with a ride-sharing vehicle? Whether you are a passenger, an Uber, Lyft, Via, or Juno driver, in another vehicle altogether, a pedestrian, motorcyclist, or biker, you may be able to get compensation for your medical expenses, treatment, lost wages, and any pain and suffering the accident has caused, and if your vehicle was involved, vehicle repair costs.
After an accident, companies like Uber may reach out to you to ask you to provide an “official statement” regarding the accident. Do not do this! You are not legally obligated to give this statement, and Uber’s legal team or insurers may try to use that statement against you if you choose to file a claim against them. You may be encouraged to file a suit against your driver instead of Uber as a company. Speak with an attorney before making any statements or decisions.
