For how popular the ride-sharing app Uber has become in recent years, there is little information about what a passenger should do if their Uber driver gets into a car accident. Our Boca Raton personal injury lawyers from Shiner Law Group are here to help clear up the confusion. If you have been injured in a car accident while riding in an Uber, we can put our 15+ years of collective legal experience to use to assist you in pinpointing liability for your damages and filing a proper injury claim.
Causes of Uber Accidents
Uber drivers may earn their own paychecks using their own vehicles but they must drive with the utmost professionalism and care at all times. Failing to take their duty to their passengers seriously can result in a car accident that leaves people severely injured. Depending on the cause of the traffic collision, they could be found to be directly liable for any related damages.
Driver behaviors that could contribute to an Uber accident include:
- Cellphone Use
- Talking With Passengers
- Unfamiliarity With Streets
- Reckless Driving
Who Can Be Sued After an Uber Accident?
Knowing who could be found liable for your Uber accident is half the legal battle that may be on the horizon. As a passenger relying on a paid professional to take you from point A to point B safely, your legal options may be quite different than compared to most other car accident claims. You may need to sue the other driver or their insurance company. You may be owed compensation by your Uber driver if they are found to be at fault for the crash. If your Uber driver has a history of dangerous driving, you may even be able to seek compensation from Uber, who allowed someone so inexperienced or unskilled to drive professionally through their app service. In any scenario, you should back your chances with a personal injury lawyer’s help.
