What are some common mistakes people make that can ruin their rideshare accident claim?
We were speaking to a gentleman not too long ago, who lives out in San Antonio, who was involved in a rideshare crash. After the crash happened, he was getting calls from insurance companies right away. He hadn’t talked to the police, and the Uber driver had some questions for him. This is the first time he had been involved in this type of crash and he really wasn’t sure what to do. Some of his friends and family said he should probably call a lawyer because they would know what to do.
He didn’t want to make any mistakes that would ruin his case. One of the things we told him was that the most common mistake we see is people not going to the doctor. They think they’re okay, they’re not hurt that bad, and they don’t go to the doctor right away.
The other mistake we see is when the clients don’t finish all of the medical treatment that is prescribed by the doctor. The doctor is going to come up with a treatment plan designed to get you to maximum medical improvement. If you decide to quit going to treatment before you reach maximum medical improvement, the insurance company is going to want to use that against you. They will say you weren’t really hurt and that you don’t need all this compensation.
The other big mistake that we see is that people don’t choose the right attorney. There are a lot of attorneys out there, and we all focus on different areas of the law. That’s why it’s important that you hire a personal injury trial attorney. A personal injury trial attorney is going to understand what evidence is important, how to argue that evidence, and how to present that evidence in a way that is most favorable for your case. That personal injury trial attorney is also not going to be afraid of taking the insurance company to court, holding them responsible, and making sure that you get fairly and reasonably compensated for what’s happened to you.
