Macon Uber Accident Attorney
What did we do before Uber hit the scene? It’s difficult to imagine how we managed to get around at all. While all that convenience is undeniable, it’s important to recognize that there is also a downside. Uber accidents are not uncommon, and they are not only extremely dangerous but are also closely associated with extremely complicated accident claims. If you’ve been injured in an Uber accident, you shouldn’t delay contacting an experienced Uber accident lawyer in Macon.
Uber accidents are uniquely complicated in a number of ways that include:
- Uber doesn’t hire drivers as employees of the company. Instead, Uber drivers are independent contractors, which alleviates Uber of a great deal of liability and makes recovering on your damages in an Uber accident that much more difficult.
- Again, Uber drivers are independent contractors, which means they aren’t professional drivers in any real sense. They don’t need to obtain a commercial driver’s license, and they aren’t held to the same stringent safety rules and restrictions that commercial drivers are. While there are some regulations that apply to Uber drivers, they are far less enforceable and far less strict than those upheld by commercial drivers.
- The question of which insurance policy is responsible for the damages you incurred hinges on where the Uber driver in question was in the app’s work cycle at the time the accident took place.
Fortunately, in many cases, Uber’s significant insurance coverage will cover injuries caused by their drivers. To learn more, call an attorney to discuss your case.
