What Should You Do if a Pokemon Go Player Caused Your Accident?

If you or a loved one was in an accident caused by a Pokemon Go player, it is important to know your rights and what steps to take next. The first thing you should do is seek medical attention for any injuries suffered in the accident. Once you have been seen by a doctor, you should contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your case.

A personal injury lawyer will evaluate your case and determine if you are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the Pokemon Go player who caused your accident. If you are able to file a lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation for your accident-related expenses:

  • Medical bills. You may be able to receive compensation for any medical bills you have incurred as a result of the accident, including emergency room treatment, hospitalization, surgeries, medication, and physical therapy. Future medical expenses can also be included.
  • Lost income. If you have been unable to work because of your injuries, you may be able to receive compensation for your lost wages. This includes current wages as well as any applicable loss of future earning potential.
  • Pain and suffering. You may also be able to receive compensation for the physical and emotional pain and suffering you have endured as a result of the accident.

The statute of limitations limits how long you have to file a car accident claim. South Carolina has a three-year statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits. This means you must file your lawsuit within three years of the date of the accident or else you will be barred from doing so. However, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. It takes time to build a winning case and evidence may be lost if you don't act quickly.
