Douglasville Uber Accident Attorney
There’s little not to love about the convenience of Uber. If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, however, you probably find yourself in a very difficult situation. Fortunately, an experienced Uber accident lawyer in Douglasville can help.
You Uber Driver
The fact is that your Uber driver is not a professional driver in the same way that a cab driver is, and he or she is not held to the same exacting standards that actual commercial drivers are. Your Uber driver, however, is obviously the first line of defense when it comes to him or her getting you safely to your destination. Uber driver negligence can lead to serious accidents, and such negligence can take a variety of dangerous forms, including:
- Distraction – Your Uber driver not only has to navigate the streets via his or her Uber app but must also find unfamiliar pick-up and drop-off sites while being on the lookout for the passengers who await his or her arrival. In other words, Uber drivers don’t have to hunt for dangerous distractions – they’re practically built into the job description.
- Impairment – Alcohol and safe driving are mutually exclusive. Nevertheless, some Uber drivers get behind the wheel while under the influence.
- Speed – Speed plays a major role in far too many deadly accidents.
- Fatigue – Many Uber drivers work long hours and can become drowsy behind the wheel.
