Millions of people become victims of Lyft accidents each year. With such a high rate of occurrence, it is surprising that there is such little investigation into the causes or advice for victims. If you or a loved one have been hurt in a collision involving a Lyft driver, there are ways forward and Binder Law Group is here to help. We have set out exactly what you should do in this guide.
Being involved in a crash is one of those extreme circumstances when your brain is in shock and you don’t always do what you’re supposed to do. If you didn’t take details at the time, there is a good chance that an officer of the law will have exactly what you need in their official accident report, so don’t worry too much. Details of the driver and their plate number are important because they will help you when it comes to proving accountability for what happened in the accident.
Go to a Hospital
You should always go to a hospital after being involved in a crash. Even if you don’t think you were hurt that badly, it is important to have this on record just in case you need it as evidence in the future. There are many reasons why accidents happen, but regardless of the cause, injuries are extremely common. In fact, it would be almost impossible to walk away without some form of physical injury. A doctor will reassure you or intervene if necessary to ensure you have the care that you need to recover.
Keep Track of the Consequences
After you have all the details and have sought out medical care, it is important to keep a record of the consequences. Make a note of your physical injuries and the impact on your mental health too. If you have lost a loved one, this is extremely important too. Think about all the ways your life has been affected in the aftermath, and don’t spare any details at all.
