        Question:

        What are some common mistakes people make that can ruin their rideshare accident claim?

        Answer:

        We met with someone recently who had been injured in a rideshare case here in Kansas. Unfortunately, they had made a lot of mistakes that we see in a lot of these types of cases. One is they failed to collect the evidence as quickly as possible. There was a lot going on in the scene and they trusted the law enforcement or those investigating the accident to document all the evidence and take photographs and get witness information and that kind of thing. The law enforcement, other entities investigating these types of accidents, don’t always get all the information that you think that they will get so it is important to document this information, gather this evidence yourself, or if you’re not able to do that, to get an attorney involved quickly who can do that for you.

        Another mistake this person had made that we see a lot is that people fail to go get the treatment that they need. Oftentimes, people have a lot of adrenaline after the accident itself and they don’t think they need to go get treatment, but even then, in the days following when they realize that they do have injures, they hope that they get better, they hope that they won’t have to go get treatment and so they don’t go get treatment. That is a huge mistake. You really need to get started with someone right away. Sometimes the injuries are more significant than they seem and the faster you start treating for those injuries, the better recovery you’ll have. The more time that goes by without documenting those injuries as part of the medical record, the more difficulty you will have with the insurance company in resolving your case.

        Another common mistake that we see is people give a recorded statement to the insurance carrier. They think they can’t do any harm to their case. They’re just going to tell the truth; the insurance carrier’s whole goal, however, is to delay and deny your case so they’re looking to gather whatever evidence they can to help them do that. They will ask questions in a tricky way in a certain way and sometimes even in a certain order, all designed to help them gather the evidence they need to delay and deny your claim. Don’t give an insurance statement without hiring an attorney first.

        Finally, one of the biggest mistakes we see is when people hire the wrong attorney. You hired someone who is not familiar with these types of cases, is not skilled in handling these cases, or is not a trial attorney and does not work the case up in your best interest from the get-go. Avoid this by getting the right attorney and getting an attorney quickly. If you have any questions about handling your rideshare case, give us a call and we’d be happy to talk to you about that
