Question:

What common mistakes do people make in their rideshare accident cases?

Answer:

The other day, we were having a discussion about typical mistakes that are made with respect to ridesharing accidents here in Orlando. There are quite a few. Number one is that, after the accident, people fail to seek medical attention. The insurance companies then use that against them to say they really weren’t that injured.

Number two is that once they do seek medical attention, they allow gaps in treatment to develop; in other words, they don’t continue with that treatment. They take two weeks or a month off. Then, they realize the pain hasn’t gone away or it’s coming back and getting worse and they go back to treatment. Again, the insurance companies use that to limit the amount of damages that they’re going to be required to pay.

It’s important to take photographs on your cellphone if you’re able to and it’s safe so that we have a clear understanding of what happened, who’s at fault, and the damage that was sustained to the vehicles. The fourth mistake that people make is that many people often then given recorded statements to the insurance company without knowing that the insurance company isn’t there to help them; it’s not looking out for them. It’s purely there to protect their money.

Then lastly, people fail to hire an experienced, knowledgeable trial attorney to guide them through this difficult process. This is something that we do every single day. That’s why we have the experience to deal with these insurance companies. If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of a ridesharing accident, please contact us. We’re here to help.
