Attorneys Helping with McDonough Uber Accidents
Few of us can remember how we got around before Uber became a reality in our lives (and many of us don’t want to). The fact is, however, that Uber drivers are often under significant pressure to perform, which can make Uber accidents that much more likely. If you’ve been injured in such an accident, turn to an experienced Uber accident lawyer in McDonough today.
Your Uber Driver
Your Uber driver faces some unique challenges that can contribute to Uber accidents, including:
- Uber drivers are not commercial drivers in the legal sense of the word, which means that they are not required to have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) – or to have any special driving skills or experience. Further, they aren’t held to the same exacting safety standards that commercial drivers are.
- Uber drivers aren’t even employees of Uber. Instead, they are drivers who contract for Uber (sometimes, for other rideshare companies as well). Uber drivers, in other words, only earn money when they have active fares, which can push some to overextend themselves and to continue driving past the point of exhaustion.
- Uber drivers are required to make frequent stops, to pull in and out of the flow of traffic, to locate passengers in their midst, to drive in areas that they may not be familiar with, and to interact with the Uber app all the while. It is a lot, and it adds up to an increased risk of Uber accidents occurring.
Uber drivers remain, however, responsible for handling these unique challenges safely.
