Talk To A Northbrook Lawyer Today About Your Rideshare Accident

Last updated on June 13, 2024

Very few people use taxis today. Instead, many people are taking advantage of rideshare services. Two of the largest rideshare companies are Uber and Lyft. One of the main confusions around these services is who is responsible for a rideshare accident.

At Orzoff Law Offices, our Northbrook lawyers have extensive experience handling motor vehicle accidents. We have noticed an uptick in auto accident cases involving rideshare services. Our Illinois motor vehicle accident attorneys can help you through your car accident case so you can recover compensation for your injuries and losses.

What To Do If Your Uber Crashes

An Uber car wreck is handled similarly to any other motor vehicle accident, with an extra step. You should do the following:

  • Call 911: Immediately after the accident, you should report it to the police. A police report is an essential document for any car accident case.
  • See a doctor: This can identify hidden injuries and connect them to the accident.
  • Take pictures: These can help us recreate an accident to improve your case.
  • Report on the app: Some rideshare apps require you to report an Uber or Lyft accident.
  • Call a lawyer: We can provide many legal services so that you can hold liable parties responsible for their actions.

Our rideshare accident lawyers at Orzoff Law Offices can tell you what you would need to begin a motor vehicle accident case so you get the relief you need.

Who Is Liable For Your Injuries In A Rideshare Accident?

A lot of the confusion that arises in Lyft and Uber accidents concerns who is liable for your injuries. We will help you identify whether the rideshare driver, the other driver, the rideshare company or the vehicle manufacturer should be held liable and responsible for your medical bills, lost wages and other financial struggles.
