We all agree that Uber offers convenience for millions of people, but Uber accidents can take a serious toll. If an Uber driver’s negligence leaves you injured in an Uber accident, discuss your case with an experienced Uber accident lawyer in Lilburn today.
Your Uber Driver
Although your Uber driver is being paid to drive you to your destination, he or she is not a professional driver in the sense that he or she needs a special license or must adhere to more restrictive safety regulations. Further, your driver isn’t even an employee of Uber but is, instead, a freelance contractor. While none of this means that Uber drivers are all inherently dangerous, it is important to recognize that he or she needs no special skills, experience, or licensure in order to drive you.
Uber Driver Negligence
In our ever-growing gig economy, more and more people are driving for rideshare companies like Uber, and because it’s not an easy way to make a living, many of them are in a mad dash to complete as many fares as possible, which isn’t the safest approach to driving. In fact, Uber driver negligence can take many forms, including:
- Distraction – Your Uber driver has to make frequent stops and starts, must interact with the Uber app and follow its GPS guidance, must scope out passengers in the crowds, and much more. When an Uber driver is distracted by anything other than getting you where you need to be safely, an Uber accident becomes that much more likely.
- Impairment – Drinking and driving is always a risky and criminal decision.
- Exhaustion – Making a living behind the wheel can be exhausting, but drowsy Uber drivers are dangerous Uber drivers.
