After a Uber car accident in Pittsburgh or South Western, PA?
After an Uber car accident, safety is your top priority in every situation. Only if it can be done safely, move your car out and away from the path of traffic. If your vehicle is severely damaged and you cannot drive it to the shoulder or another safe location, you may be able to use your hazard lights and wait for help to arrive. If you are injured and cannot move but can reach your cell phone, call 911 for emergency assistance immediately. Otherwise, you should wait to call law enforcement until you have moved the vehicle to the shoulder and reached safety.
You must contact law enforcement after most accidents in Pennsylvania. 75 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 3746 – Immediate notice of accident to police department, states that a driver “shall immediately” and through the “quickest means of communication” provide notice to the police when:
An injury has occurred to anyone at the accident scene.
A fatality has occurred because of the Uber car accident.
If a car in the accident is in such shape that it cannot be safely driven.
In the case that anyone has been injured or a death has occurred due to the accident, § 3744 – Duty to give information and render aid, requires the parties to remain at the scene and contact law enforcement. Furthermore, under this law, a driver of any car involved in the accident has a legal obligation to provide name, address, license and registration with the other parties who were in the accident as well. The driver of the car in the accident must also provide insurance card information to the other involved drivers.
If the Pittsburgh or PA Uber car accident involves damage to a car that is in a parking space, unoccupied car or truck, or to any other property, the driver of the car also has a legal obligation to immediately stop the vehicle under § 3745 – Accidents involving damage to unattended vehicle or property.
As the driver who caused the damage to an unoccupied vehicle or property, you have the legal obligation to leave your information in an obvious location for the owner to find.
