Brunswick Rideshare Accident LawyerUsual Injuries in Rideshare Accidents

The primary difference between a rideshare accident and a regular accident is that your driver is working on behalf of a rideshare company when the accident happens. The injuries you sustain as a passenger in a rideshare can include:

This harm may be minor or severe, but it is imperative to seek medical attention immediately after a rideshare accident. Seeing a doctor as soon as possible is the best way to determine if you suffered any significant injuries in the accident, and the visit will begin the necessary documentation of your medical complaints.

Liability in Brunswick Rideshare Company Accidents

Georgia has a fault-based system for dealing with any car accidents. This means that the person at fault for the accident is responsible for compensating others for damages and injuries their mistake causes. Many times, either the rideshare driver or a driver of another car or truck is considered the responsible party. If the rideshare driver is determined to be at fault for an accident, you may attempt to seek compensation under the rideshare company’s insurance policy. Contacting an experienced rideshare accident lawyer is the best way to figure out who may be responsible for paying for the injuries and determining the different policies available for compensation.

Types of Compensation An Injured Person May Recover

Many factors will contribute to the amount of compensation you can receive. Some of these factors include the circumstances surrounding the accident, the type and severity of the injuries you suffered, and who is deemed at fault for the accident. In an accident that involves a rideshare driver, there are various expenses for which you may be compensated:

  • Current medical bills
  • Potential future medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and income
  • Permanent disability as a result of the accident

Contacting an experienced attorney in rideshare accident claims can assist you in obtaining fair compensation for your full medical expenses.

Tactics Undertaken by Rideshare Companies and Their Drivers To Avoid Liability

If a rideshare driver is involved in an accident that caused you injuries, it is important to determine if you are entitled to compensation for those injuries. Insurance companies will almost certainly attempt to settle the claim for as little as they can to limit their losses. Two of their common strategies are relaying a low settlement offer or disputing the fault of the accident:

Contacting you early after the accident with a low settlement offer. When insurance companies review a car accident claim, they will always offer a low offer early on in the claim process. They will do this at a time where you are stressed and vulnerable from the impact the accident has caused you. This is the time to contact an attorney to discuss the incident before accepting or signing any paperwork.

Denying fault and blaming somebody else. Often, insurance companies will claim that they are at not fault for the accident. Rideshare companies’ insurance providers will likely claim that somebody else was responsible for it instead of the rideshare driver. These can prove to be very difficult claims and can impact your ability to recover compensation.

Cost of a Brunswick Rideshare Accident Lawyer

After an accident, you may incur significant expenses. You may find yourself worrying about medical expenses, lost income, rental car fees, and additional expenses related to your injuries. You may even be concerned about an attorney costing more than the medical expenses. The Brunswick Rideshare Accident Lawyer Strom Law Firm provides free initial consultations to analyze the details of your case and any potential paths for financial recovery. Most cases are taken on a contingency basis. This means that you will not pay any attorney fees unless we recover compensation for your injuries. These fees will be paid from the settlement amount, so you will never owe anything upfront. This allows you to focus on your treatment and return to your life without worrying over the details or paying upfront for your representation.

Typical Mistakes of Injured Parties Filing Rideshare Accident Claims

You can file a rideshare accident claim for yourself, but the process can be difficult and frustrating. As with other accident claims, it is easy to make a mistake if you attempt to through the process without an experienced attorney.

Persuaded Into Admitting Your Own Fault

Accident victims typically discover that insurance claims are complicated, and insurance companies are tricky. The best lawyers agree that the insurance company may appear to show compassion and empathy when discussing your injuries and suffering. After gaining your trust, the adjusters may then ask questions that could deceive you into admitting fault. They will also ask you to give a recorded statement that may later be used against you in mediations or proceedings.

Waiting to Seek Medical Treatment

One thing that insurance companies look for is whether you sought immediate medical attention. This does not mean you need to go to the hospital in an ambulance immediately after an accident, but you should go to the doctor as soon as possible if emergency treatment is unnecessary. Failing to seek out a medical professional to evaluate your injuries could result in a loss of credibility with the insurance company. The insurance company may take the position that since you did not seek immediate care, your injuries may not be as severe or serious as you’ve claimed.

Sharing Details on Social Media About Your Accident

Social media has become a huge asset in all types of cases, mainly for insurance companies. Many accident victims fail to realize that what they post in social media could impact their claim. Insurance companies will review social media sites and posts by claimants to collect information that may refute a person’s claim. You should not put any information about a rideshare accident on social media. Always ensure that your privacy settings are properly set so that you know who has access to your posts.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
