What Should You Do If You Get Hurt in a Rideshare Vehicle?

Rideshare vehicles are extremely popular in many cities, including Nashville. And while using a rideshare app to get rides around town can be a safer alternative than driving yourself—especially if you plan on drinking—they aren’t free from all dangers.

Many people are hurt in rideshare accidents every day, and the injuries they suffer can be severe. That means expensive medical bills and lost paychecks. However, not all rideshare accident victims pursue compensation that they might be entitled to.

If you’re involved in a rideshare accident, take these steps to protect your health and your rights:

  • Call 911—Regardless of who caused the accident, whether it was your driver or another motorist, it’s important to stay at the scene and call 911. Doing so dispatches both police officers and emergency personnel who can file accident reports and administer aid to you and other victims.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene—Use your camera or phone to take pictures of the crash scene. Because multiple parties may attempt to defend themselves after the crash, it’s important to document what happened as closely as possible.
  • Call a Nashville auto accident lawyer—Rideshare accidents can be legally complex, and fault may be split among passengers’ drivers and other motorists. The sooner you call a lawyer, the better your chances of getting compensation for your injuries may be.
