Data Shows Rideshare Companies Are Major Contributors to Urban Traffic, Shares AA Accident Attorneys
A recent report confirms that rideshare companies are major contributors to urban traffic, particularly in America's largest metropolitan areas.
LOS ANGELES, August 15, 2019 (Newswire.com) - A recent report confirms that rideshare companies are major contributors to urban traffic, particularly in America’s largest metropolitan areas. What’s more, these rideshare platforms also account for many accidents and injuries, including both vehicle collisions and pedestrian fatalities. In a new statement to the press, AA Accident Attorneys shares some tips for passengers who have been injured in rideshare accidents.
“It’s important to know how to handle yourself after a rideshare accident, and also when to hire an accident lawyer with rideshare litigation experience,” the firm states.
Safety is the most important thing. If physically able to do so, it’s wise to move out of the road and onto a safe spot on the shoulder or a median. “Also make sure you survey the other people involved, and if you notice any injuries, call 911 for an ambulance,” comments the firm.
AA Accident Attorneys also advises rideshare passengers to call the police. “Have an officer dispatched to make a report,” they comment. “This may be vital to your insurance claim or legal case.”
Gathering contact and insurance information from the other parties is critical. “You may need to file a claim with your driver’s insurance company, with the rideshare company itself, or with the other driver’s insurance company,” AA Accident Attorneys states. “Make sure you collect all the information you’ll need.”
It is also recommended to seek a full medical evaluation from an urgent care facility or ER, even when there’s no visible sign of injury.
