Uber, Lyft & Taxi Accidents: What To Do If Injured as a Passenger in Texas

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston auto accident attorneys know Uber, Lyft, and other ridesharing services have transformed how we think about transportation. However, being a passenger in a rideshare does not mean you are immune to being injured in an accident.

Being injured as a passenger in an Uber, Lyft, or another rideshare accident in Texas requires prompt and careful action to protect your health and legal rights. Here, we explain the steps that can help protect your claim so you get the compensation you need to regain control of your life.

Steps Should Passengers Take After Being Injured in Texas Uber, Lyft & Rideshare Accidents

What Steps Should Passengers Take After Being Injured in Texas Uber, Lyft & Rideshare Accidents?

If you are injured as a passenger in an Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare accident in Texas, it is essential to take specific steps to protect your health, rights, and potential compensation.

They include:

  • Assessing your condition and the condition of others by calling 911. This ensures first responders will report to the scene and an official accident report is created, which will be necessary for your claim.
  • Take photos and videos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and any visible injuries.
  • Gather information from all drivers involved, including their names, contact details, insurance information, and vehicle registration numbers.
  • Get witness contact information and ask for their account of what happened. Their statements can be valuable for your claim.
  • Take screenshots of where you are on your trip, including the driver details, in case they are removed from your rider history by the rideshare company.
  • Use the app to report the accident to the rideshare company following the process identified by the corporation.

Even if you don’t feel severely injured, medical evaluation is crucial as some injuries may not be immediately apparent. Keep detailed records of all medical treatments, diagnoses, and prescriptions. Follow your doctor’s recommendations for ongoing care and attend all follow-up appointments.
