Rideshare Cases Can Be Complex. We’ll Fight For Every Dollar You Deserve.
Injured In An Uber Or Lyft? Contact Me Today For A Free Consultation.
An auto accident can turn your life upside-down. The experienced attorneys at Bennerotte & Associates are here to ensure you get the medical attention and financial compensation you are entitled to. Auto insurance companies can be slow to pay and will try to devalue or even deny your claim. Uber and Lyft accidents are even more complex because there are typically additional insurance policies involved. Pay nothing to start, and only pay after we secure a settlement on your behalf.
What Should You Do After An Accident Involving A Lyft Or Uber Car?
Seek Medical Attention
After an accident, the first priority is always the safety and medical attention of anyone who has been injured. If the auto accident caused any injury, call 911 immediately. If the accident does not require emergency attention, it’s still important to go to the hospital as soon as possible.
Report Accident To Police
Call the police to get the proper reporting handled. While the police report may not always be admissible in a civil trial, consistency between your story and the report will help your case. Call 911 to ensure that the police come to the accident scene and prepare a police report.
Report Accident To Lyft Or Uber
Both companies have dedicated pages on their websites giving you instructions for reporting an accident.

Do not give any recorded statement or written statement without first speaking to an attorney. Just report the accident.
Document / Take Photos Of The Accident Scene And Injuries
Your memory of the details of the accident will fade over time. Taking pictures and even making some basic notes about the accident can help your case by ensuring that your details are accurate and consistent.
Meet With An Attorney
Before you talk to an insurance company, take advantage of a free consultation with an attorney. The insurance companies have attorneys on their side to ensure they can pay you as little as possible. It is not in your best interest to negotiate or give a recorded statement to the insurance company until you have spoken with a lawyer.
Experience Getting The Highest Verdicts
Every year a Top 100 list is compiled for the highest jury verdicts achieved by personal injury lawyers throughout the United States. Bennerotte & Associates is proud to have been named on this list.
While it’s great to be recognized as achieving the highest jury verdict, the real accomplishment here was getting the client the settlement they deserved. It’s also worth noting that this was a jury verdict, meaning it was a case that went to trial. Many personal injury attorneys have limited trial experience which can limit their ability to negotiate effectively on your behalf. If you’ve been injured, go with a proven winner – trust Bennerotte & Associates to get you the best possible outcome from an unfortunate situation.
