If you were hurt in a rideshare accident, the moments following the crash can be confusing and overwhelming. Here are important steps to take to protect your legal rights after you’re involved in this type of crash.
Here’s What You Can Do
Following a rideshare accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be dealing with the physical pain of your injuries and the necessary appointments for your medical care. To ensure that you protect your right to a fair recovery and a successful claim, it’s important to know:
- What to say (and not to say) to insurers and to people involved in the accident. What you say can be used against you, and the insurance company may try to get you to say something that will be purposefully misconstrued. Accordingly, it important to be cautious, and direct anyone who asks about the accident or your injuries to your lawyer.
- What to say (and not to say) on social media. Insurance companies and defense attorneys will be looking at your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media account for evidence that you’re not as hurt as you claim to be.
- How to preserve evidence. You are not in control of most of the evidence related to the accident. Consequently, it’s important to hire a lawyer to help ensure that all applicable records are maintained, so they can be used in your case.
- That you have a limited amount of time to take action. The Virginia statute of limitations applies to your case. Thus, it is important to make sure that you don’t miss the deadline for filing your claim.
