How Our La Jolla Uber and Lyft Accident Lawyers Can Help You

After being injured in a rideshare accident, your first instinct may be to rely on the at-fault driver’s insurance to cover your property damage and bodily injuries. Indeed, many car accident claims are resolved through a settlement negotiation with an insurance company. However, that does not mean you should move forward without an attorney. Some of the reasons we recommend engaging an accident attorney are:

  • Identifying the liable party or parties
  • Gathering evidence as quickly as possible
  • Adhering to the statute of limitations
  • Dealing with difficult insurance companies

Whether you pursue compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance policy, the rideshare driver’s insurance policy, or both, you may run into a tough claims adjuster. Insurance companies are naturally motivated to protect their bottom lines, which means they frequently deny claims and limit settlements. An experienced attorney will work to ensure you are treated fairly and negotiate a just settlement.

When Should I See A Doctor?

Even if your injuries are minor, it is wise to seek a medical examination as soon as possible after the accident. You are responsible for mitigating your damages, so failing to seek adequate care could hurt your case. If you wait too long to seek treatment, an insurance company may review your file and determine that you were negligent in failing to seek treatment and will not offer a favorable settlement. Not to mention, you should do what you can to heal!
